Cyriel showed how you can turn problems into opportunities. Break your fixed thinking patterns and dare to go for your GiGa dream. He showed how to explore the world from different perspectives. Get into action and apply NaNo actions to reach your dreams. Cyriel inspired by several tailor-made examples and stories lead the audience to experience the power of thinking in a ‘Yes And Act’-mindset. 

YES - Suspend your judgement. Believe.
AND - Explore alternative views. Imagine.
ACT - Get into action. Experiment.

We also have a buka puasa dinner session right after the talk

It is said that if you put Cyriel Kortleven in front of an audience and he will ignite a lot of sparks. People will become more positive and creative. They get enthusiastic to explore new paths. The results: energy, ideas and a strong basis for change.

Cyriel Kortleven, born in 1975, grew up in Zutendaal (Flemish Limburg). His life and career are dedicated to creativity and innovation. People in a creative flow are the most productive and enjoyable colleagues. That’s something that every manager and leader knows. But how do you get your people in that mind-set? Cyriel explores this challenge as a management trainee, office manager and business consultant.

‘The creative power is the most important element of a company or organisation.’ claims Cyriel. ‘Invest in the potential of your people and your organisation will flourish. And it’s also better for you as an individual and the whole society because:

  1.  Problems are transformed to opportunities
  2.  Threats are transformed to chances
  3.  ‘Yes but …’ is transformed to ‘Yes and …’
  4.  A passive reaction is transformed to an active experiment
