Speaking Topics

  • Future of Mobility: Lessons from an Industry in Disruption

    Digitisation has entered the mobility arena. The car has evolved from a mechanical device into a “data producing embedded software platform”, and the internet is quickly linking the supply and demand to effectively fulfil our transport needs. And just like every industry that is confronted with digitisation, the changes come faster than most traditional players can prepare for. Yet, with all unpredictability that comes along with disruption there are some fixed rules that one can prepare for. This makes mobility a real example of an industry in the mids of disruption. Carlo van de Weijer will highlight the most important future trends within mobility, from biking to self driving vehicles, electrification and the impact on cities and society, With a clear focus is on lessons to be learned from that for any other industry.

  • Mobility & Future of Cities

    Future of Mobility: a disrupted market and its impact on cities and society. Digitisation has entered the mobility arena. The car has evolved from a mechanical device into a “data producing embedded software platform”, and the internet is quickly linking the supply and demand to effectively fulfil our transport needs. And just like every industry that is confronted with digitisation, the changes come faster than most traditional players can prepare for. Yet, with all unpredictability that comes along with disruption there are some fixed rules that one can prepare for. This makes mobility a real example of an industry in the mids of disruption. Carlo van de Weijer will highlight the most important future trends within mobility, from uberization to self driving vehicles, electrification and the impact on cities and society. His talk includes many guidelines on how to prepare for disruption in any other industry.
