If you are interested in attending my pre-conference workshop you can have a look at a small introduction video here.


The world is changing faster and faster. From a flat 2D-World to a chaotic and ever changing 3D-World. Organizations, companies, schools and regions have to adapt to a 3D-World that is flooded with information and need to increase their power to learn and innovate dramatically. In order to become sustainable we need to discover the best of us.

Today’s educational system and companies however are not able to create the right learning and working environment that enables and energizes disruptive innovation by using the passion and talents of students and employees. We unintentionally transformed talented adults and children into passionless sheep. We have to boldly go for a new balance between education and work. We have to disrupt the organization of working and learning.

This session is a plea for a dramatic change in the organization of work and education. After this session 2D, 3D, 2D-Sheep, 3D-Smarts, 3D-Learning Power and 3D-Management will be branded in your brain. You will become disrupted.


  • Switch-3D, the disruptive evolution from Information Shortage to Information luxury.
  • The Global 3D-Smart Wave and the battle of the species.
  • The impact of 3D-Smarting on Learning, Motivation, Competence Development and Innovation.
  • The extinction of 2D-Smarts (Sheep) and 2D-Diploma Addiction.
  • Organizations in Search of a New Balance. No more Sheeping!
  • The Competence Playlist and Social Validation. A new deal between Education and Work.
  • Jeff’s Law and the Electricity of Learning. A new paradigm for Learning Power.
  • 3D-Management Style as the next step in management evolution.
  • Your next step …
