His several comedy shows like “Physik ist sexy” – Physics is sexy (2004) and “EVOLUTION” (2013) established Vince Ebert as a scientific comedian who can captivate both lay and scientific audiences with his wordplay and humor.
Since 2018, Vince Ebert presents his first English show called “Sexy Science. Serious Humour – Made in Germany” in the English Theatre in Frankfurt. Ebert has been hosting his own science show on German television for 5 years. His books have sold over 500.000 copies and were listed on bestseller rankings for many weeks.
Furthermore, Vince Ebert gives keynote speeches in English and German for international corporations like Commerzbank, Philips Lighting, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Media-Saturn or BASF for many years.
Whether as a comedian, author or speaker, Vince Ebert’s mission is to convey scientific contexts with the laws of humour.
- Big Dadaism: A Common Sense Approach to Digitization
How will our work life change in the future? Will computers soon be more intelligent than people? Will they even control us? Be it in marketing, as a strategy in human resources or in the production field – nowadays the term “digitalization” is omnipresent. We get the feeling that all traditional business models must be changed or abolished all together. But will Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and the Silicon Valley geeks really cause a revolution of our everyday work life?
Comedian and physicist Vince Ebert advises us to stay calm and tells us in his new lecture what about Big Data are modern myths, empty promises and horror visions of the business world of tomorrow. By using witty and surprising examples, he demonstrates where humans are still superior to even the most intelligent computers and how to stay successful in the future by relying on creativity and a sense of imagination. In his sweeping keynote speech Vince Ebert shows which factors are relevant for our ability to master the future, why self-driving cars will probably never win recognition and that already stone-age business models used social networks. We do not have to be afraid of digitalization. On the contrary. 10 years ago, the German celebrity fashion designer, Rudolph Moshammer, was strangled with a telephone line. Today this would be technically impossible. Big Dadaism – a provocative, funny and reassuring lecture in times of digital hysteria. And last but not least: a humorous encouragement to use our own heads!
- Priorities: What is Really Important
Whole companies are operating remotely from their private homes. Entire industries have been put on hold. People fear for their employment and bosses complain about lack of productivity. Maybe soon the only people on the streets will be Amazon delivery guys. Everyone else is sitting isolated at home, streaming, posting, zooming or liking something or other.
In times like these we have to reconsider our priorities. What is really important? What is redundant? Companies and enterprises need optimism and inspiration more than ever before. And a reasonable helping of humor.
Vince Ebert has developed a vaccine against misery and despair and shows in his usual witty manner how to stay productive, positive and capable of action in a phase of complete uncertainty. And how to prioritize. Among other things you will learn:
why improvisation is more important than perfection
why our brain needs physical contact
what you can easily do without in the future
and why a step back is sometimes a step forward
Vince Ebert should know. The physicist, ARD-show host and comedian has been thriving during lockdown times. After all, social distancing was the reason why he studied physics in the first place.
How can we make future-oriented decisions? What should be our priorities? How many questionable appointments are in my firm? Am I one of them?
“Priorities” – food for thought in uninspired times
- Randomly Successful! Why the World is Not Predictable and How You Can Use That
Do you believe in coincidences? If your answer is no, think back to the time when you met your partner or got your first job. Do you really plan every step you take in your life? It is clear that there are many influencing factors in our lives we cannot influence.
Similarly, if we look at the timeline of our civilization, there are many coincidences which lead to big inventions. For example, the inventor of porcelain wanted to create gold first and Viagra was invented as a heart medication.
In this keynote, speaker Vince Ebert will explain how we come across coincidences and why it is so hard for us to accept them. With the help of science, neuromarketing and chaos theory, he will show you how can we give coincidences a chance – as they are necessary to create and innovate.
