What do you know?

In the early days it was about WHAT you know. Meaning, which facts and figures have you learnt and do you know by heart. You remember the adagio “knowledge is power” ? Now the internet gives you the possibility to find all kind of information anytime you want. This kind of static knowing has become […]

Co-working and Co-living

Recently, I wrote a blog article about the trends and developments in flex-working. From the well- known commercial flexwork locations, and working at people’s homes, to work in a fully equipped work-van. This Flex-work will now get a new dimension with the latest trend: Co-Working and Co-living.  To learn more about this new concept and […]
