We live in a digitized society.
Therefore, the question today is no longer whether Digitalization is the future or not. The questions are rather:

  • How can we help shape this digital future?
  • In what way do we want to live and work?
  • How can we, as a company and society, use technology without leaving the people around us behind?

With which mindset can we look positively into the future?

Climate collapse, Ukraine war, inflation, fear of China or ChatGPT ...
In keynotes and talks, Richard inspires people to think in terms of possibilities. Because he is convinced that we overcome crises by thinking in terms of solutions instead of focusing on problems. And, by bringing two future drivers together: Technology & Empathy!

The world is more than complex: Metaverse, genome editing and AI are the future - pardon, the present! ChatGPT has abruptly shown where we stand. Some are fascinated, others are in shock.

Technological innovations are often disruptive breakthroughs: they replace existing things and force us to change habits.
Some are curious and open - others are overwhelmed, frustrated, afraid. But technology should be for us first and foremost!
A tool to create a future worth living.

"Digitalization - Deal with it!" - Richard Seidl

It is no longer a question of "Digitalization yes or no"! The question is: How do we want to live? What will companies, schools and public authorities look like in the future? How can the social and global challenges be mastered? But above all: With which mindset can we look positively into the future?

Richard Seidl explores these questions in his keynotes. As an entrepreneur, software expert and coach, he brings the worlds together on stage:

  • From practice: A mix of well-founded expertise and 20 years of practical experience instead of dry PowerPoint presentations
  • Entertaining: Complex technical topics are conveyed in an accessible and easy-to-understand manner.
  • Inspiring: Solutions that anyone can easily implement and that motivate

Richard Seidl Portrait

Richard Seidl

Why do I care to talk about Digitalization ?

I got my first computer as a toddler in the 1980s. Since then, I have been fascinated by the creative possibilities that this technology offered: All of a sudden I could implement and program my own ideas, create worlds by means of "multimedia", efficiently manage data in databases, and later participate in worldwide networking with modem and Internet. The playing field for cognitive, intellectual and creative processes was suddenly immensely expanded.
In my professional career over the past 20 years, I have experienced and seen a lot of what can be done with technology. But at its core, it remains a tool that should serve us as humans. It should help us to live our needs, to grow, to develop and to master our challenges with it. Because it is precisely with this combination of technology and humanity that we can create a fantastic future.

Unfortunately, however, today there is far too often a division into two camps: "Humans are insignificant," say the technocrats. From the other side it resounds: "The machines are our downfall".

Bringing these views together in our companies and our society is my vision. As a consultant and coach, I can actively shape this every day in my work. As a speaker, I want to share this idea. To inspire people to make technology work for them with curiosity and courage. And to grow with it and further develop their own humanity.
