I hope your world is awesome 🙂
For the past nine years, my team and I have been working hard to produce TEDx and, more recently, Singularity University events that leave attendees feeling inspired.
Along the way, we’ve had a front row seat to some pretty big ideas: ideas about the way we live, about the challenges we face, and about the kind of future we’re creating together.
We’ve learned, for example, about the dramatic impact exponentially accelerating technologies are having and will continue to have on all our lives, for good and for ill.
We’ve also learned technology is only one of the vectors of disruption coming our way. We need to be thinking about our economic structures. Our political structures. Our social and civic structures.
And we’ve learned that, sometimes, we can find solutions to our problems by focusing less on the new and more on the tools we already have. Or by focusing less on the tech and more on the humanity.
Until now, our work has been limited to bringing people together around the sharing of ideas like these: events intended to inform, challenge, uplift, and delight. What you did with those ideas was up to you.
But the sharing of ideas is only useful if action eventuates.
It’s time for a new way forward — a new paradigm — to tackle the tough questions we are facing in the rapidly changing world around us.
So now, I’m excited to invite you to join us on the next evolution of our journey.
Along with a group of my global colleagues and counterparts, we are launching a new venture, designed not just to bring people together around ideas but to offer the structures and frameworks to lead towards tangible action and outcomes.
Welcome to Boma.
Boma is a new organisation offering transformational learning experiences, linked directly to outcomes, to change your world.
If this sounds exciting to you, here are two steps you can take right now:
One: Sign up for the Boma New Zealand email list. You are receiving this email because you attended a TEDxChristchurch event or a SingularityU event — you will not receive further updates about Boma unless you opt-in.
Two: Come to one of the official Boma launch events! Boma’s official New Zealand launches are happening in:
You can also watch the global launch live as it’s announced in Paris, France, on Friday, 6 July at 4:45am NZST.
I hope you’ll join us on this adventure. As I’m often reminded, the future doesn’t happen to us. It’s created by us. The more of us who participate, the better the future we can create.
