About keynote speaker Ronald van den Hoff


Ronald van den Hoff is co-founder of the Dutch CDEF Holding BV, a Holding company with a remarkable range of ventures operating on the disruptive intersection of the Hospitality-Tech. CDEF incorporates ‘much discussed’, disruptive exponential formulas, like the co-working and meeting centers, and the Society 3.0 Foundation., with over 220 locations worldwide, has become an interactive breeding ground for inspiration, innovation, entrepreneurship acceleration, cross-linking and cross-pollination. S2M is also the online development lab, not only creating our in-house software and apps, but also Artificial Intelligence software like ‘The Serendipity Machine’.

A publishing company, The Society 3.0 Foundation, completes this range of innovative ventures. In April 2011 this Society 3.0 Foundation published Ronald’s book Society 3.0, creating a context for all CDEF’s activities. This Society 3.0 foundation is a movement, a guiding light and a change agent in our ever-dynamic world. Its activities, books, publications, events and websites are the visualization and exploration of the vision and mission of the CDEF Holding. In addition to his work within CDEF Holding BV, Ronald works on innovation with (international) hotel chains and other service companies in the field of E-commerce, E-communication, Business Modeling, Value Networks, Exponential Organizations, Decentralized Autonomous Organizations, Social capital and alternative monetary systems.
