About the


The fast and furiously changing world is opening up enormous, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for entrepreneurs who can see and create the future through their energy, power and will. The perfect heatwave of opportunities are driven by:

     4th Industrial Revolution technologies like automation, blockchain, 3D printing, IoT, and AI
     Global risks like climate change, political unrest, inequality, resource conflicts, and stress
    Massively changing customer, employee, and citizen needs and demands

Our Exponential Entrepreneurs Program ensures participants have the tools and thinking they need to seize such opportunities to create unprecedented value and impact – whilst they build the capabilities they need to lead themselves and others to expand exponentially

The 6 sessions of coaching within each of our 'plug and play', tablet-based toolkits develop conscious, creative and collaborative behaviors - and empowered, emotionally-intelligent mindsets.
Program participants not only get leadership coaching and learn to coach others - but they build a deep connection with a new peer to support accelerated growth and development for life.
