About the course
Throughout the program, hear from global experts in the fields of exponential technologies and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are most critical to Australia's future.
Workshops and discussions facilitate focused conversations about the opportunities and challenges that Australia now faces and how you can play a leadership role in defining our future.
The SingularityU Australia Executive Program is a 3.5 day immersive experience.

- Help come up with solutions to humanity's biggest challenges
- Be amongst global leaders creating the future
The SingularityU Australia Executive Program curriculum is designed specifically to address opportunities and challenges that are uniquely Australian. This includes exponential technologies, transformational practices, and relevant global challenges and opportunities, each taught by a member of our world-class Expert Faculty.
You’ll leave with a comprehensive overview of covered topic areas and an understanding of recent major innovations and the implications they have on industries, society, and our future.
We will set expectations for the next few days and get to know each other. We examine core SingularityU frameworks such as the 6Ds of Exponential Organisations and explain how you can use them.
Reframing Your Perspective
The exponential factors driving our future are artificial intelligence, robotics and leadership. Leaders will require the ability to shift and adapt fluidly in order to positively impact humanity.
The Davos Manifesto released in January 2020 challenges businesses to redefine who they are and how they operate, this on the back of the US Business Roundtable, America’s most influential business lobby group, announcing it would embrace stakeholder capitalism in 2019.
Today we weave tools to help shift mindset and achieve maximum impact, through a journey into the future.
Scanning the Horizon
Today we focus on further specific technologies and Global Grand Challenges that will play an important role in determining Australia’s future.
We will look back thousands of years listening to the wisdom and ways of the traditional owners of this land.
Uncle Paul Gordon is a Njemba man, and one of the highest initiated Aboriginal men in New South Wales. Joe Williams is a proud Wiradjuri/Wolgarlu, First Nations Aboriginal man who played for Souths and authored of Defying the Enemy Within.
The focus is then on the Future of Us. What ethical considerations will be required when applying technology in the future and how will we manage its impact on society?
Forecasting & Execution
What does it mean to be exponential? What role must each of us play in creating the future? What lies at the intersection of humanity and technology? And how will you respond as leaders?
Today we develop your Execution Plan, identifying opportunities for the SingularityU Australia community to achieve set goals.
