We’re encountering some of the greatest transitions that any generation has ever had to face. Technological disruption is already affecting every part of our lives; every business, every industry, every society — even what it means to be “human.” These changes show no signs of slowing down; in fact, they’re accelerating rapidly.
But the ever-increasing pace of change doesn’t just hold challenges – it holds opportunity. We are shifting from an economic model based on scarcity to one of abundance. What are the strategic implications? What kinds of policies do we need? What is the impact on our economy? What are the ethical considerations? None of the old rules apply.
In a country such as Portugal, where technology is popping up in every corner, these questions are even more pressing.
The SingularityU Portugal Executive Program is an exclusive and immersive program designed to guide leaders and doers towards answering these questions and grasp coming exponential opportunities.
The SingularityU Portugal Executive Program is an exclusive, 3-day immersive program designed to support leaders and doers develop the right mindset, tools and frameworks that will help them and their organizations to thrive in a world driven by exponential growth.
The program takes place in the breathtaking Nova SBE campus at Carcavelos, located halfway between Lisbon and Cascais, taking full advantage of the distinctive characteristics that Portugal has to offer.
It is designed to focus on the latest innovations and developments in exponential technologies and challenges that are most important to our country and to our people’s future.
We bring together our amazing Portuguese faculty and other inspirational speakers from around the world in our unique learning setting.
The program begins with an overview of the exponential technologies that are driving our future, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, additive manufacturing and digital biology. We’ll also examine core SU frameworks such as the 6Ds of Disruption and moonshot thinking and explain how you can use them to shift your mindset and achieve the impact you want to make in the future.
During our second day, we’ll focus on specific technologies and global grand challenges that will play an important role in determining our country’s future in key industries such as energy, health, industry, citizenship, learning and economics. We’ll also explore ethical considerations about how we apply technology in the future and manage the impacts they may have on society.
On our final day together we will reflect on what it means to be exponential and the role that each of us can play in creating the future—not only as individuals but also as a cohort. You’ll plan your next steps and identify opportunities for the SU community to help you to achieve your goals.
Join us and be prepared for the mind changing talks, workshops and visits that will disrupt the way you think and inspire you to take part on this challenging, yet exciting future.
