“I cannot express the positive impact this keynote has had on me. It has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone, pursue my dreams and cultivate a mindset of growth and resilience.

More so, when failures are consistently shared within the organization this has a positive impact on the organizational cultures it fosters everyone’s learning mindset.”

“Your intervention at the Netex Salon was amazing. This morning, when I woke up I didn’t think that we would be talking about something that for me is as important as children to improve as a person, so thank you for saying it with the naturalness and certainty with which you did it! I believe that imagination and creativity are key elements that make us unique and that can never be taken away from us by machines. Thank you for reminding us of the importance of calm, transformation, self-management and curiosity in this ever-evolving world. I hope to have the opportunity to talk to you more about this at some point.”
“A couple of days ago, I had the privilege of attending the Toyota Tech Conference where Katja Schipperheijn was an esteemed speaker.

Katja, your thought-provoking insights and innovative approach to reimagining the work process were truly inspirational. My heartfelt gratitude for enlightening us and instilling a fresh perspective on our professional journey.”
“Lots of very non-trivial observations and provoked thoughts. Digital transformation in learning should not be looked at in isolation; it is merely a tool, and may have diversified effects, including non-obvious consequences. Inflow of information grows exponentially and time to reflect on this info shortens proportionally The future of Learning function might be not in delivering information but in guiding people how to learn AND stay sane.”
“As an eLearning specialist with many years of experience, I found your talk at the inernational HR conference in Cyprus really inspiring and refreshing! In a world where Gen Z has an average attention span of 12 seconds, it is very important to try new approaches to adapt and transfer knowledge to the different generations within our organizations!”
