About this Speaker

From my Linkedin profile:

Re) DESIGNING DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION > SDGS2030 Experienced creative lead and design/digital professional, on a mission to reach the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. I believe we need to train young talent and seasoned professionals in Digital Transformation Design: a combination of leadership in tech/design and social innovation, combined with the right competencies to (re)direct the digital transformation of society and industry in a more responsible and sustainable fashion.

In the past 18 years, I have gained broad expertise on topics such as transformation design, digital society, human(ity) centered and UX design + how we can collaborate across cultures and borders in order to build a global innovation chain to tackle global challenges from local perspectives.

DIGITAL SOCIETY SCHOOL & GLOBAL GOALS JAM I have co-founded and currently co-direct Digital Society School (30 staff, 90 trainees/year) within Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. I was at the birth of the widely used Design Method Toolkit, the global Design Across Cultures programme and the growing community of the Global Goals Jam, with the United Nations Development Programme: 90+ cities and over 5000 design activists that use their creative skills for the benefit of the SDG's and society.

Recently I was a Community Liaison for the World Design Organization, responsible for advocating life-long learning and promoting design for the SDG's. I am also a proud advisory board member for DOT in Spain and visiting professor at IE University in Madrid.

DESIGN FOR EXPERIENCES/ EMOTIONS In the past I have co-founded and headed a digital agency and strategic design consultancy and took seat in the board of the international Design & Emotion Society for over 10 years. I am happy to have worked with companies such as Unilever, P&G, Bic, Decathlon, KLM, Philips, Mars, ING, Pepsico and to have given crash courses and guest lectures at many universities/ organisations around the world.

SPEAKING I will be most happy to share my vision and stories with you, your organisation or your audience on stage. I have addressed and engaged diverse audiences on stages large and small around the world, such as in Spain, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Germany, UK, Chile, Mexico, the US, S. Korea, Japan, China, South Africa, Rwanda and many more. Events included: RIT Fram Chair keynote, SXSW, The Next Web, TEDxSalon Shanghai, Social Good Summit NYC, EDIT Toronto, Passiontour Chile, Industrial Design Trend Seoul, etc.

Please contact me if you want to collaborate/partner up to design a better world.
