The Chinese innovation train is heading for Europe at high-speed. The train will not stop, so leverage China’s global ambition to your advantage. Jump on the train, now. Chinese brands still have a lot to learn about Europe and we can learn a thing or two from China as well.

Pascal's candid presentations with real-life examples will be eye-opening, create food-for-thought and uncover patterns for you to turn the Chinese innovation train into an opportunity for your business.

He has translated his insights into two main keynote formats:


How China sets the standard for innovation

By 2030, China wants to become the world leader in innovation. This leaves Western companies with some 10 years to gear up.

As ever more radical innovation will soon be inspired by China, this eye-opening keynote is a treat to anyone who is concerned with disruption and excited about the opportunity.

innovation insights from Silicon Valley & China jointly with Peter Hinssen

Silicon Valley and China’s tech ecosystem cities (such as Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Shanghai) are the fastest evolving innovation hubs in the world. But inspiration from pioneering startups, corporates and academics from these distant corners of the globe should not be an ‘either, or’ story. Each has its very own background, innovation DNA, culture, methods and strategies. Each has the potential to trigger you in ways you’d never thought possible.

And who better to inspire you in the matter than serial entrepreneur & Silicon Valley aficionado Peter Hinssen and China evangelist Pascal Coppens?

Book Peter and Pascal for an eye-opening double keynote on the uniquely successful innovation approaches of Silicon Valley and China. They’ll bring you on a holistic journey into the heart of technological, societal, individual and business (model) change. If you want to really understand the depth and complexity of innovation, and the potential of disruption: this 3-hour twin journey will change your perspective forever!
