Welcome to ExO Speakers. Our Massive Transformative Purpose (MTP) is to deliver insights for global transformation by connecting you to thought-provoking speakers on Disruption, Innovation, and Transformation for any occasion. We hope you find our blog a resource for some of the latest insights from our speakers and community.

The Journey towards ExO Speakers

ExO Speakers is the culmination of years of living in and around Silicon Valley and being surrounded by provocative thinkers from that community — around the world.

For over six years, I lived in Silicon Valley and spent much time at Singularity University during its formative years helping with many projects from their Graduate Studies Program to their Executive Programs. In that same time, I came to travel extensively to events around the world with speakers including Salim and some of the others from our community, and understood that we were all purveyors of Silicon Valley — it’s thinking, culture and possibility.

I became a key contributor to the launch of the book, Exponential Organizations by Salim Ismail and would go on to exclusively manage and curate his speaking career for clients around the world. All the while, this work was laying the foundation for the expansion of the ExO Movement and ExO companies.

Our Speakers

Salim Ismail is the best selling author of Exponential Organizations and one of ExO Speakers’ headline talents. At ExS, we are curating a community of disruptive subject matter experts that have bypassed linear thinking and implemented programs that bring about rapid, positive changes at work, in cities, and in our interpersonal relationships. Our speakers come from fields as diverse as:

  • Accelerating Technologies

They are not just speakers, they are the practitioners at the cutting edge of their fields and advise global CEOs, corporate boards and governments.

Being Disrupted in Times of COVID-19

As we like to say, “you are either disrupting or being disrupted”. COVID-19 has presented us with the ultimate moment of disruption. This is presenting the need for so many of us to pivot our businesses. We’ve had to ask ourselves, how do we operate now? How do we think about the platforms and ways in which we can still engage with our clients and communities virtually? To say that virtual events are exploding exponentially is an understatement. At ExO Speakers, we’ve thought a lot about the in-person conference experience and how we can transfer that to our current remote reality.

Happening next is the ExO World Digital Summit taking place April 14-16, 2020. We are proud partners of this cutting edge event. Join us there and find out how we can work with you to create something similar.

My Massive Transformative Purpose is exponential empathy and emotional wellness for all. May this blog post find you all well with your families and loved ones.

We are truly a global community in this shared moment of reset.
