    Keynote Speeches

    My keynotes focus on the future of work and how to build the organisation of tomorrow using emerging technologies including big data, blockchain, the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence. Van Rijmenam believes that every organisation is a data organisation, which brings massive opportunities but also comes with great responsibilities. In my talks, I always discuss the importance of data security, data governance and data privacy to help organisations understand how to build a customer-centric business using emerging technologies.

    My keynotes are targeted at large organisations who understand they have to digitally transform their business, but who do not yet know where to start. My keynotes are perfectly suited as an inspirational opening keynote to give everyone a shared understanding of emerging technologies and how they will change the future of work and have an impact on the organisation of tomorrow. This will help set the scene for more in-depth keynotes and break-out sessions later during an event. Read more about my topics and see some short video clips.

  • Adventure

    In 2011 he circumnavigated Australia on a bike for charity. 14.122 km in exactly 100 days. This experience taught him everything about perseverance, focus, discipline, a positive mindset and how to plan for the unexpected. After this adventure, Van Rijmenam became an entrepreneur with a drive to have an impact on the world.

    This special initiative was all about realizing our dream. In precisely 100 days he cycled around Australia. The total distance was 14.122 kilometres. With the necessary resting days, the daily distance was approximately 165 kilometres. The main goal, aside from the mental and physical challenge of the tour itself, was accumulating as much money as possible for KiKa, a Dutch foundation committed to pioneering and innovative research in the area of children’s cancer. 100% of the funds (€ 25.000) collected were donated to this incredible foundation.

    Van Rijmenam has more adventures planned in the near future.
