Remember to bring


We understand that many of you have attended the SingularityU New Zealand or Australian Summit—awesome! For those of you that have not, or if you'd like a refresher, we’ve curated a list of great talks from exponential faculty around the world below.


Over the course of the programme, you'll learn tools and techniques to create impact in your world. If you have a particular problem you want to solve, a hypothesis to test, or a scenario for a future product, service, or innovation—essentially something concrete to iterate on, this is the perfect opportunity to apply these learnings. We'll expand it, challenge it, work through it, and leave you prepared to take action.


You’ve been invited to attend because you’re willing to be a change agent. You're curious, have a design mindset, or are excited to work across multiple disciplines. Bring your your social intelligence and tolerance for ambiguity.


Some of the exercises on Day 2 require you to use your preferred electronic device.
