The third wave of the Internet is unfolding in front of our eyes, but what is it all about and which opportunities will the Metaverse/Web3 shift create for business & society at large?
Looking at the number of players involved, the attention of investors & the fast growing spending on virtual identities, services and products...the game is really on. There is a generation waiting on our doorsteps, flourishing in virtual worlds and virtual communities. They think and act differently, from leisure over work and everything in between.
So how can you create value and grasp the opportunity? This presentation will guide you through the different layers of Web3 & the Metaverse and how you can leverage its potential to serve the next generation of customers, citizens and communities. Prepare yourself for the promising future of the Metaverse generation and get ready to delight them.

Hemingway once said: ‘The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them’. Trust in business is not always easy to find, especially in challenging and volatile times.
If you want to succeed trust is a crucial concept to understand and to radiate towards your employees and partners. 
In this presentation Dado Van Peteghem provides 10 guiding principles on how to build and maintain trust in relationships, based on the book he wrote in 2021 on Metasystems - How Trust can change the world.

In the future, competition will happen on the level of ecosystems instead of the level of products. The world is changing too fast to go at it alone, organisations need to partner up to win in the new economy.
In this presentation Dado Van Peteghem shares his insights on how to leverage partnerships as the growth model of the future, based on his books on Corporate Venturing & Metasysems. 
After all, it's together that we build the future.
