SOLD OUT 🚀
We live in a world of hyper-complexity and exponential development. Robots are taking over more and more blue and white-collar jobs. Commercial spaceflights are just around the corner. The Internet of Things is going to create changes even more dramatic than the world wide web. We are now living in a world where technology develops exponentially, not linearly. Anything, any service, any business model and any industry can be disrupted. This has severe consequences for businesses and business people everywhere. With this in mind, it’s important to recognise that the answer to surviving in this exponential world is not for your business to give up or turn a blind eye to technological development. Instead, your company can benefit from adopting a new perspective. Specifically, an unapologetic customer perspective. Why? Because human beings and their underlying motivations have remained the same since the dawn of time.
At the event you will meet Kris Østergaard, Co-founder and Chief Learning & Innovation Officer of SingularityU Denmark, a Scandinavian partnership of the Silicon Valley based Singularity University. Kris will share insights into how you can adopt an exponential mindset, give examples of where the world is heading on a short, middle and long term driven by technological development and how these developments can help solve the big, important problems the world is facing. In the following workshop, you will be challenged to rethink your own business and deep dive into understanding how you can design for a 10x impact - not only on your customers, but on the world and thereby also optimize your own potential of thriving in an exponential world.
