Technology Next

Driven by Technology

Our information society is driven by digitization and technology. Future-proof organizations therefore use various technologies such as robotics, big data, algorithms, Cloud, IoT and artificial intelligence. These lead to, among other things, more agility, smarter production processes and a better overall competitiveness.

Against this background, various aspects of technological innovations and the impact on business operations are discussed within the Technology Next theme. We cover a wide range of topics, trends and innovations that are 'next'.

  • The latest technological innovations
  • More agility and smarter processes
  • Connecting Business and IT

Because Flevum

When looking for opportunities to share knowledge and experiences with peers in your field of expertise, Flevum offers a variety of programs which allow open dialogue. Our sessions are based on undermentioned key points.


Because we want to ensure open dialogue, our sessions have a small-scaled nature. This way, we allow participants to share experiences and recently faced challenges. The group of participants varies from 10 to 25.


During our sessions, we bring together participants from various sectors and/or industries. This means participants can share their experiences with peers from other sectors and this allows participants to have a meaningful experience.

Practice-oriented speakers

Our sessions are introduced by relevant keynote speakers from top 500 companies, healthcare institutions and government institutions. The speaker presents his or her own vision regarding the subject by sharing experiences. The brief introduction will serve as a prelude to the following discussion.

Peer-to-peer & cross-learning

Our sessions focus on peer-to-peer knowledge exchange with a cross-learning character. This means executives will engage in conversation with other executives, CHRO's with CHRO's, but also IT Directors with Data Directors or Innovation Directors. By screening every application to a session, we make sure that all participants are from the same audience. This allows us to ensure peer-to-peer knowledge exchange.

Chatham House Rule

To ensure open dialogue and allow participants to share succes, challenges and other experiences, our sessions are held within an enclosed environment (the Chatham House Rule applies). To be concrete, this means no recordings will be made during the session and shared information will remain private to participants.
