Philipp Kristian’s work on trust and transformation has received ever-increasing recognition in recent years. His key speaking topics include, but are not limited to:

A-I Don’t Trust You
We are in love with AI and digital: it’s led us to instant gratification of whatever we wish for. This gives us a paradox: why is it so hard to digitally transform when we clearly want a digital future? In this talk, Philipp highlights the problems and promise of trust issues in AI, data and digital transformation.

Trust As One, Get It Done
People are our greatest asset. We are talking people- and purpose-centricity, but our talent is walking. We struggle to unite across generations. Culture, productivity and brand suffer. Why isn’t work working anymore? In this talkj, Philipp outlines how to restore trust in we-spirit and resolve people, purpose and productivity concerns.

E-S-Gee This Isn’t Easy
We know this is our planet, that we all have a stake in it and that we need to change our ways. Yet we really struggle to free ourselves of financial objectives that focus us on the short-term. Why can’t we escape? In this talk, Philipp tackles the trust gaps between ESG vision and corporate governance in a digital world.
