How to walk into the new era


We are living in an era of total change, although it is not the first time the industry has faced an era of change. New business models will be driven by ‘disruptive technological breakthroughs’ which will change manufacturing techniques, as well as the entire production chain, distribution flow and storage. All this will help us to re-enable unique production on local scale again. Therefore we have to invest in apparel with an authentic story and respect for nature, since the future is belonging to long-term trends. Key questions are: What is the added value of an idea for humans, physically, mentally and ecologically? And: How to value an idea?

Developing new strategies in your company and looking into the new development of products and services is a part of your added value for the future of your business. With as starting point: 'The connecting meaning economy'.


With F.e.e.d Flor Depla is optimistic about helping you to invent a new future, no matter what kind of business you have. 


It doesn't interest me who you are, or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand with me in the fire and if you won't cede back. 
I want to know if you will take the risk to look like a fool for love, for the dreams you have, for the adventure of being alive...
Developing a lifestyle society that offers a way of living with respect for nature, traditions and high-tech technology.

One to one conversations, or conversations with little groups of people of your organisation, to get inspired:

  • What does it mean to you to see your activities in a broader perspective in this new century?
  • And how can you connect Global and Local?

Get inspired, invent your future. 


Think Tanks

Brainstorming for organisations.

“Poplars always grow in line, the stronger the line the stronger each individual poplar. So it’s all about together for ourselves.”

  • How can you as a company make the difference?
  • Can you create new connections with your designers? With other companies? With your clients? With the population of your country, your city or your street?
  • Can you create, produce or sale products with a real added value that makes a difference for all of them? Can your company contribute to the human well being in this new world to come?

It’s a new kind of added value from products for people to people. It all concerns authenticity: only authenticity will make your success.


Coaching & Consultancy

 Entrepreneurship is definitively not an exclusivity for entrepreneurs and companies.

“Poplars always grow in line, the stronger the line the stronger each individual poplar. So it’s all about together for ourselves.”

  • Indeed, each person on the work floor can participate to the new entrepreneurship. Every worker can add value to it if only he or she is given the necessary space to undertake.
  • Workers should not been seen as robots, because this leads to emptiness, depressions and burnouts.
  • Entrepreneurship starts with acceptance and participation.

The employer is no longer the dominant… but he becomes a listener and a caring guider providing connections with his employees and his customers. The workers are already in demand of this kind of approach.



The connection-meaning economy: a new enterprise model.

During my presentation, I’ll deal with questions about a new enterprise model we all are invited to apply in the near future. The ones who can deal with it will be the successful one’s, the ones who can’t will be history.
