Paul Ostendorf has held top positions at ICT companies for more than 25 years. He worked his way from programmer to director. He established companies specialised in software, research and financial systems and founded the Foundation Electronic Highway Platform Netherlands (EPN). He is a core teacher at the Academy for Management of the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen for postgraduate studies. Currently, Paul Ostendorf presents himself as a free lance futurologist. That allows him a broad view on many future developments. The future plays a key role in his presentations. Ostendorf's lectures are extremely fascinating. He provides the audience with an original look at many new developments. He does not only think up the story, but also develops necessary software and the visual design to illustrate it. Attending one of Ostendorf's lectures always feels like a special experience. He is one of BeNeLux's leading thinkers in the field of information and communication technology. He has developed a remarkable futurological philosophy and is aware of economic, scientific and social developments as they happen. He searches for connections, translates meanings and regards possible consequences of these developments. As a futurologist, he knows how to translate developments into future social changes. His knowledge and background have made him an internationally highly acclaimed keynote speaker. He advises the managements of major companies inside and outside the Netherlands in his capacity as a trend watcher and futurologist. His pioneering insights are based on a very optimistic view on the future and the role of technology. Paul Ostendorf enthuses, inspires and fascinates his audiences at almost every occasion.
