Eye Openers

Become aware and discover the impact of exponential technologies on humans and organizations and how these technologies work, all while having breakfast. Our Eye Opener events are insight generators for our participants, meaning we will help you see what’s on the horizon by bringing you the best speakers on exponential technology. An Eye Opener is a breakfast meeting that literally and figuratively opens your eyes to the possibilities that new technologies offer to your business.

Eye Openers are interactive inspiration events spanning an hour, during a breakfast. Your eyes are literally opened in an open and relaxed setting, with room for in-depth discussions and interaction with our colleagues, customers, and business partners. This will give you insight into the impact that technology has and will have on your market, your organization and on yourself. 

The four main subjects of our Eye Opener events are:

Future of Work

It is important to understand what you can potentially do with technology, otherwise technology will do something to you. With your market, your job, your company.. What is the impact of exponential technologies on the nature of work, how work will be organized and can professionals and business prepare for the future of work? We will be diving into it.

Future of Ethics

Our digital future is all about the right thing to do vs what we have a right to do. If technology is able to erase bad experiences from your mind, would you do that? Do you think you have the duty to take care that your children are born disease free? We are developing technology to create our future, so we should also develop a responsible future mindset and turn our future into a growth experience.

Future of Trust

Our worldwide trust in corporations and governments reached an all time low in 2020. Can new technologies like blockchain replace banks and central governments? Discover how invisible technologies are changing handshakes and contracts alike in the digital world.

Future of Mobility

How is mobility making the world smaller and the economy bigger? What matters in the automotive and mobility markets and what will dominate the space in the years to come? We look closer at the autonomous, connected, electrified, and shared trends and business models that matter.

During our Eye Openers you will be submerged into the global rise of the data-driven digital economy and the disruptive influences of the underlying exponential technologies on the content and organization of life. 

By opening your eyes you will be aware of what will happen next and distinguish signal from noise.

Where IT cooperation used to be found in shared IT environments, Sound sees an increasing need to unbundle these shared IT environments (including shared Microsoft tenants and workplace equipment), between municipalities and other agencies. Security, information security and the need for greater flexibility are considerations here.
VRTogether aimed at radically improving the digitally augmented social experience by innovating how media formats are used
On its way to the digital future, the municipality of Zwartewaterland decided to join the SSC Ons, a Shared Service Center for municipalities in the surroundings of Zwolle and the province of Overijssel.
The organisation in this reference case asked Sound to make them the leader of the new hybrid working in the large corporate market. Hybrid working is the form in which employees of organizations and companies work partly at home and partly in the office.
