Publicist Erwin Witteveen takes you on a tour through the modern network society. He inspires, makes you laugh and lets you look from a different perspective at the immense changes that are currently taking place in society.
Erwin Witteveen is (together with Martijn Aslander) the author of the controversial book “Nooit Af”, which has been nominated for the Management Book of the Year 2016. The book has already been in the Managament Book Top-100 for 600 days. Nooit Af is about what happens now everyone can publish, duplicate and produce. This requires a totally new perspective on the fundamentals of our lives: work, school, living, relationships, government, management, legislation, healthcare, finances. In a world that is changing faster than ever, we must learn to embrace the Nooit Af principle.
