  • Less is beautiful
    How 'less' can success in business

    'Less is beautiful' … We live in a society with an abundance of products and services, connections, technologies, information, but a downside is that we almost get paralysed by the choices and possibilities (burn outs, stress and less and less time for the really important things in life).

    There are already several great examples of individual initiatives of people who live with less stuff or who choose to live a simpler life. But there aren't a lot of examples of how professionals in organisations and governments can apply 'Less is Beautiful' to their daily practice.

    Get inspired by loads of examples from very different industries and learn how you can apply three simple principles to experience 'less is more', start to stop, simplify and letting go.

    This presentation gives you insights into the exaggerated search for efficiency, the paradox of choice, and very concrete examples and tools to apply 'Less is Beautiful' to your professional lives.
