Sign up for various workshops, stay up to date with the latest developments and trends in the industry, join the game and step on a moving stage!

The event will be conducted mainly in Dutch.

The doors will open early: at 9:30 our key note speaker Joseph Oubelkas kicks off. Joseph will talk about Personal Leadership from his own unique life story. The workshops that start immediately afterwards continue on this theme and will provide you with new insights.

The lunch gives you energy for the Scavenger Hunt game in the big garden around the castle.

Being totally refreshed, a panel discussion will start between a number of suppliers, covering topics like market dynamics, vision and trending topics. Be surprised by the floating stage, allowing you to speak up. A Q&A between you and the supplier!

We conclude the day with a bite and a drink, the perfect moment to do your own networking. This will also be the moment when we will hand out signed copies of Joseph Oubelkas’ book to the winning team of the game.

Joseph Oubelkas

Joseph OubelkasJoseph Oubelkas was born on the 10th of September 1980 in the town of Raamsdonksveer, a bustling village in Brabant a few kilometres above Breda. Joseph has a wonderful childhood in the village. He has a great mother, a caring father and good friends. Joseph goes to HAVO after primary school and then to HBO in Breda at the age of sixteen. There he studied Higher Informatics and four years later he was one of the youngest IT engineers in the Netherlands.

He wants to continue his studies, but the business world offers him good opportunities. A few years later, he successfully starts his own IT company. Studying, working, love, Joseph is doing well on all levels, but then it goes wrong. In December 2004, something happens that turns his comfortable life upside down. Apparently something that can happen to anyone just like that. A business trip to Morocco ends in a catastrophe with unprecedented consequences…

His books ‘400 letters from my mother’ and ‘Health, Love, Freedom’ are the result of his experiences. During Openprovider’s Partner Event, Joseph will give an inspiring TedTalk about how to take matters into your own hands when this seems impossible. Joseph Oubelkas inspires, moves and connects as an energetic speaker. He speaks vividly, with passion and enthusiasm and even humour about his life-changing experience. Every week Joseph Oubelkas is invited as a speaker to a wide range of organisations. His listeners learn a lot about questions like this:

  • How do I motivate myself when the world around me collapses?
  • What does it take to continue to believe in my values when they are threatened on a daily basis: ‘Who am I and what do I stand for?
  • How do I give the people around me a team spirit and how do I inspire others?
