Topic – Navigating an Uncertain Present & Building for a Better Future

To live in the world today is to experience accelerating change and to watch a future we had scarcely imagined unfold at a pace we’ve never experienced. And to not only survive but thrive in this context, it’s not enough to simply know what’s coming. You have to understand how the pieces fit and how emerging risks, evolving possibilities, and proliferating connections open new opportunities for those who can imagine them. You’ll learn to spot weak signals, and how to capitalize on the change we are all experiencing by thinking beyond it. Because if you only set your sights on what’s coming next, you’re already too late.

Topic – Rethinking Real Estate: A Disruptive Outlook

Businesses in the 20th century grew around scarcity, and those scarcities were protected by barriers of entry, competitive advantages, and all sorts of economic moats. But now, the exponential technologies are lowering the barriers of entry to dissolving competitive advantages across industries. The moats that were so efficient at protecting are businesses, no longer. Moreover, they confine our organizations and prevent us from connecting to the new abundances. Diego Soroa suggests It is time to identify all those moats, and start Thinking out of the Moat, as an amazing exercise to anticipate from where Disruption might come.
Diego Soroa has founded four startups and is a member of the foundational group behind the Exponential Organisations movement and one of the most celebrated coaches both at Open Exo and Exo Works, performing in over 35 ExO international Sprints. Diego has developed several models to anticipate or to create disruption, that are currently being used by companies worldwide.
