  • BIO

    Ramon Vullings studied 'industrial engineering & sociology', already a cool combination.



    Ramon started his professional career as consultant at Coopers & Lybrand helping companies to improve their business process redesign. After the merger with PriceWaterhouse Ramon soon became the Global CRM Operations Manager for the PwC Consulting Customer Relationship Management practice (3500+ consultants) working from Paris, what an adventure!


    In the year leading up to the IBM acquisition of PwC Consulting, Ramon was part of the transition team for PwC Consulting. At IBM Business Consulting Services Ramon became the EMEA CRM Learning & Knowledge Lead, a beautiful role in which he got skilled in advanced, large group & on-line didactics.



    In 2004 Ramon decided to start his own company Twinkeling BV focussing on business creativity. He co-founded the innovation & change company new shoes today and in 2012 the innovation network company 21 Lobsterstreet.


    Based on all this experience, Ramon has since grown into his role as keynote speaker, author and ideaDJ: helping business leaders, new business development and HR managers with strategy, tools & skills to look beyond the borders of their domain to transform their business in a smarter way, infusing people with tangible ideas, spot-on inspiration and actionable advice.


    Besides his work as international speaker and innovation consultant, Ramon is a executive professor at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Eindhoven and at the Antwerp Management School.


    Ramon has written 3 management books on business creativity. He is also chairman of the (not for profit) European Association for Creativity & Innovation (EACI).


    What makes Ramon so unique is not only the content he shares, but also the way he presents it. Ramon is a born entertainer, mixing humor with personal anecdotes and insights in the way business & life intertwine.



    Ramon is Dutch, living in beautiful Antwerp (Belgium) together with his wife Linda and their two sons: Zorro & Rover. Ramon loves to travel, in the period 2009-2010 together with his wife Linda, he traveled the old silk road for 1.5 year (all over land, not using airplanes!) to learn how people in other cultures deal with similar situations differently. He still cherishes this wonderful journey and uses many anecdotes of this time in his keynotes!
