A Sample of Our Talks


Thriving in Exponential Times. Understanding how tomorrow will be different than today and why that matters more than you know.

The world is changing faster than ever and the future will be here before you know it. To survive, it’s not enough to know it’s coming. You have to be able to imagine it. You’ll learn about exponential technologies, their impact on the world and how to capitalize on the change we’re all experiencing by thinking beyond it. Because if you only set your sights on what’s coming next, you’re already too late.

Decentralized Innovation. New Paradigms for an Exponential World.

In a world of accelerating change, where business models get disrupted daily, and your competition looks nothing like it used to, how do you not only stay relevant but leapfrog forward? The future of innovation today belongs to the crowd who can outperform and outcompete closed systems. You will learn from first-hand experience how to harness the power of decentralized ideas, resources, and skills; how to bridge untapped geographies and leverage innovation at the edges.

The three D’s of Exponentials. Disruption, Dystopia and Decisions.

The world is changing faster than ever before, and disruptive change has become the new norm; while for the first time in human history, individuals/people/communities have the same innovation power as large companies and even nations. How will you thrive and capitalize on the change we’re all experiencing? And how will the decisions you make affect us all?
