I make future tangible

“That’s how we live and work in the future”. During the performances, I talk for 45-120 minutes about the fundamental changes in everyday environments – from home, social coexistence, mobility, nutrition or sport – as well as the expected changes in the labour market or in activities.

I always discuss the specific orientation of my contributions in advance with the organizers in order to get a feeling for the audience, the pressing questions as well as the specific interest. No appearance is the same, each presentation contains tailor-made and up-to-date statements or statistics.

Looking to the future

How does your profession change in times of digital transformation? How do disruptive business models affect markets, and what is the part of Moore’s law of regularly doubling computing power? What influence do quantum computers have on the pharmaceutical industry or traffic management in metropolises? Will we all be unemployed as a result of the evolution of artificial intelligence … or even oppressed by them? And why do transhumanists carry computer chips in their bodies? And finally: how can companies or authorities strategically prepare for this or rethink their business model?

Trend Workshop

Which trends are really relevant to your business model?

How do your employees develop an MVP and where does your company want to be in ten years? I moderate.

Let’s move forward for the future

My vocation is to pursue two objectives: firstly, education. Few people have the opportunity to deal with trends all day long. This privilege is reserved for futurologists like me. We accumulate mountains of information and see connections that are important for so many people, institutions and companies. My contribution is intended to help as many people as possible to obtain and apply the relevant information – filtered through my research.

Catching up with the future

Futurology (Latin futurum “future” and -logy) is the systematic and critical scientific examination of questions of possible future developments in the technical, economic and social fields. Among other things, it uses methods, methods and techniques as developed (and will) developed by forecasters and combines qualitative and quantitative methods.

Why futurology

The need for futurology was historically recognized for the first time towards the end of the Second World War. In postmodernism, the complexity of a globalizing world has increasingly become a problem for decision-makers in politics, business, and especially the military (keyword nuclear energy and weapons). But it is also becoming more and more confusing for entrepreneurs, when suddenly everyone is in a globalised competition – thanks to the Internet. Future researchers are trained to provide an overview in this confusing world.

My approach

In principle, future research is characterised above all by an inherent interdisciplinary approach. Future researchers do not see themselves as experts in a specialization, they are more likely to have the ability to identify with the right questions and the application of the appropriate methods those sources that are necessary for answering a specific question for the future. lead to the “best” answer. Accordingly, there is not one correct answer or even method for your situation – to find it, I initially offer only 3 core products: keynote, workshop, text. After that we can see further…

Delphi method

The Delphi method is not a method originally developed for future questions, but was discovered early on by futurology as an important instrument. The reference to the oracle in the ancient Greek Delphi is of course no coincidence. The core component of the Delphi method are interviews with experts as well as several survey waves within the framework of a research project. Expertise can mean theoretical knowledge, but it often goes back to the possibility of designing specific areas; that’s why I often talk to boards of international companies.

Scenario method

Scenario technology has its roots in economics, but has been increasingly refined in recent years by futurologists. The idea is to identify factors influencing the future of the subject of the investigation on the basis of aggregated knowledge – often in combination with methods of collection other than pure literature research.

Data analysis

Helmut Kohl died on 1 May 1898. In a speech in the Bundestag, he said: “Those who do not know the past cannot understand the present and cannot shape the future.” Regardless of the person and his policies, there is a lot of truth in this quote. Future researchers, however, rely not only on gut feeling, party book and diplomatic circles, but also computer-aided data analysis, trend radars and patent databases.

My qualification

On 22. On October 1, 2013, the Dean and the Chairman of the Examination Committee of the Department of Educational Science and Psychology of the Free University of Berlin issued me with a wonderful certificate. Among other things, it says: “Kai Gondlach (…) has successfully completed the Master’s degree programme in Foresight. In accordance with the Examination Regulations (…), the Master of Arts is awarded.”

Keynote Speaker

I look forward to your invitation

Fireplace evening or big gala event – I’m there. In my keynotes I talk about your topic, no matter what industry you belong to: Trade, insurance, banking, mobility, real estate-whether B2B or B2C, group, municipality or startup. You just have to tell me what questions you want to deal with or what purpose you want to achieve.

Since 2016, I have been working with the team of the 5-star speaker agency. My hotly loved elves take care of any concerns about my stage performances professionally and heartily. Without their tireless efforts in customer contact, travel organisation or contact maintenance, I would no longer have a head for what is really important: My customers.

Flog: Future Log

Here I write about topics that concern me and which I think also interest a wider audience. Unfortunately, the time of a futurologist is also limited, which is why there will probably never be enough reading material here for all those who get lost here. Please write me a topic that interests you, and I will include it in my text queue.
