Herman Konings (consumer psychologist and trendanalyst at Pocket Marketing/nXt) loves to lurk on different generational tribes sharing the same habitat. He explores the near future of commerce, mobility and hospitality based on a combination of new research data, insights and futurist concepts. 


His stories?

The digital revolution promised to broaden our horizons, but left us trapped in a bubble bath of echoes and prejudices. How can we rediscover discovery and bring serendipity and revelation back into our professional and private lives? After years of algorithm-dominated innovation, we're returning to the value of intuition and human-guided discovery.

Herman will examine projects, brands and innovators re-inventing random encounters and serendipity to stimulate creative thinking and confound our expectations.
