About the curator
Peter Joosten MSc. is a futurist and biohacker. He is a keynote speaker and consultant for various companies and institutions about these topics. In his popular podcast show ‘Biohacking Impact’ (Dutch iTunes Top 100), he interviews various experts in the field of technological developments, science, and ethics.
He also writes about biohacking and transhumanism on his blog PeterJoosten.net and is often in the media (Dutch radio and tv) to explain current developments.
His mission is to let people think about the implications of the upcoming Superhuman Era. With this in mind, he started the platform SuperhumanTalks.com.
Peter gave the keynote on Health x Tech, an evening on the topic of medical technology organized by the faculty associations of medicine and engineering science at KU Leuven. Almost 500 students and alumni attended the event. With his accessible and interactive lecture, Peter was able to create a curious mindset among the public and set the tone for a successful evening. He was well prepared and even introduced the other lecturers when touching their fields of experience in the keynote. Peter is a very approachable and kind person and the communication to make arrangements on the keynote was smooth and enjoyable.
We invited Peter to be part of a panel discussion about Transhumanism, during our Grand Opening. He has a clear vision on what the future will bring regarding upgrading your body. He is experienced and very interesting to listen to. Peter is super friendly and approachable. The communication before, during and after went perfect. We will definitely book him again for events we host on an international level. We have locations in Stockholm, Oslo, Stockholm and Amsterdam.
Imagine Superman without the cape. Imagine Batman without the mask. Imagine Richard Branson without the long hair but with the same entrepreneurial spirit. Imagine all of that talent combined with some Dutch flair and you have Peter. He can upgrade me any day! Great motivational speaker. Biohacking influencer pur-sang.
