Our SingularityU South Africa Virtual Executive Programme is up and coming and will take place live online, so you can participate from anywhere!

We’re encountering some of the greatest transitions that any generation has ever had to face. Technological disruption is affecting every part of our lives; every business, every industry, our society – even what it means to be “human”. These changes show no signs of slowing down; in fact, they’re accelerating rapidly.

We – as human beings – have an essential role to play in this. Will we allow technology to disrupt everything, or do we seize the opportunity and make sure that these technologies are used in a positive way, solving our grandest challenges in the process? To achieve this we need Exponential Leaders: pioneers, change makers, game changers – people who embrace change and see it as an opportunity to grow and make a difference.

Are you the one to guide your organisation towards a lasting impact in the world? Do you have the courage to start a movement of positive change? Then, the world needs you!

About this programme

The SingularityU South Africa Virtual Executive Programme is an exclusive, three and a half day virtual leadership program for executives and top influencers who want to become the Future Leaders in a world driven by exponential growth.

Exponential technologies are humanity’s most powerful tools for creating new opportunities and solving the significant challenges that we face. They demonstrate how the sustained doubling of price performance in computing power holds an immense potential to shape a better future.

We’ll provide you with a set of proven tools for integrating these technologies and nimble innovation practises into your organisation. We’ll discuss the role of the four fundamental human motivations, share the best practices from exponential organisations, and review the design principles of innovation in legacy organisations. We’ll also explain how to apply the 6Ds of technology to explore potential innovations and how to apply moon-shot thinking to create 10x solutions that can have a massive impact.

You’ll also uncover insights about the trends that are already shaping our future including:

  • The continued emergence of AI, robotics, and digital manufacturing that are transforming the workplace
  • The future of medicine and digital biology that are impacting human health in a myriad of new ways
  • The rise of blockchain technologies and their many implications on all types of transactions between individuals and organisations
  • The ethical implications of exponential technologies and how to navigate toward an abundant future for all

Begin your 

journey towards

becoming an

exponential leader

Together, these insights and tools will enable you to predict and evaluate how accelerating technologies are transforming your industry, your organisation, your career, and your life.

The programme will take place online. We will combine inspirational speakers, engaging workshops and networking. In our unique virtual experience, we’ll introduce you to the latest innovations and developments in exponential technologies and challenge you to think about changing the future by exploring moonshot ideas to solve humanity’s biggest challenges.

Learn about current and state of the art exponential technologies.

Your view of what the future holds will permanently shift after your exposure to exponential technologies. You’ll start to see how technology can unlock solutions that will change the world and your future.

Understand the power of moonshot thinking and the potential to impact 1 billion people.

The Global Grand Challenges (GGCs) are worldwide problems too big to ignore. To solve these challenges requires the same kind of extraordinary “moonshot” thinking that took humanity to the moon – the belief that we can achieve anything that can be imagined and knowing this can be realised through the application of new technology.

Discover new tools and skills to translate your new knowledge into action.

Tools for integrating these concepts within your organisation are at the core of the programme: lean startup processes, DIY tools, rapid prototyping, future forecasting and scenario based reasoning, unlocking human potential, and open source approaches to innovation.

Become inspired by examples of how people are using exponential technology to solve Global Grand Challenges.

Domain experts and renowned speakers will share case-studies about businesses that have already set an example that solving the Global Grand Challenges also makes good business sense. Triple bottom line thinking.

Develop a step-by-step action plan to scale your impact.

In a mixture of lectures, workshops, networking, informal evening discussions and free time in our virtual world, you will radically shift your perspective on the future and your ability to leverage new technologies in a highly competitive world.

Are you ready to create a positive impact on the world?
Apply now and shape a bright future of abundance.
