Christophe Kempkes

Systems/futures thinker | Trends


Reason for being here: Unlimited curiosity and an urge to make complexity workable.  

Finest hour: Bringing people to places, in their hearts, where, in their minds, they always wanted to be.  

Greatest inspiration: Pipi Longstocking: “I have never tried that before, so I think I should definitely be able to do that.” Everybody is allowed to experiment. And everybody is allowed to fail. Engage with discomfort and grow.  

Burning wish: That human modesty takes over from human engineering. That is no lack of ambition. On the contrary, it increases our chances of survival.
