As lockdown continues around the world, the energetic and agile team behind OpenExO, the global transformation ecosystem connecting world-class professionals, has announced ExO World: Now! a global one-day online event on 12 May 2020 that will explore the current scenario and find solutions to global challenges triggered and highlighted by COVID-19.
ExO World: Now! is a condensed, one day version of the very successful ExO World Digital Summit that took place on 14-16th April 2020, where more than 2,800 people and 130 speakers gathered inside an interactive online ‘festival’ with one sole purpose – envision how the current global situation can serve as an opportunity to rethink and recreate our future. The 3-day virtual gathering resulted in 56 hours of awe-inspiring content, 200 breakout sessions, 2,700 networking connections, and 10,300 chat messages discussing transformative topics like Biotechnology, SDGs, the Future of Government to psychedelics, peak performance and the exponential renaissance.
Attendees like Valentine Stockdale, Managing Director of Strategy at Blueprints said ExO World was “the best event I have ever attended” and others described the event as “game-changing, trailblazing, a breakthrough, brilliant, truly amazing, a festival like no other, and much better than traditional conferences”.
“After ExO World in April the requests by attendees came pouring in so we responded with ExO World: Now! to help re-live the original atmosphere, content, interactions and the sense of magic we all experienced in April,” said OpenExO Chairman & Founder and lead author of Exponential Organizations, Salim Ismail.
ExO World was conceptualized as a result of the COVID19 global pandemic, with a fast-thinking and nontraditional approach to a global gathering to create, share and evaluate toolsets and ideas to be implemented at a personal, company, or institutional level. Bringing forward their remote-working expertise the OpenExO organizers are aimed at regenerating humanity forward while simultaneously shining a light on the opportunities and positive transformation that can be accomplished virtually while achieving a zero-carbon, efficient, personalized, and highly engaging event experience with breakout sessions, networking and open spaces for collaborative solution-building.
The aim of ExO World is for the proceeds to fund initiatives and outcomes from the events that are aligned with transforming humanity. As a result of April’s ExO World event, $10,000 was donated to DreamTank, a nonprofit aimed at igniting kids through entrepreneurship and innovation.
“The ExO World format was something the world has never seen before and it worked extremely well. We set a massive transformative purpose (MTP) of transforming the world, then we gave attendees a scaffolding by which they could find their own path during the event, whether through climate change, AI or transforming their company… leading them to a huge outcome that they may not have known possible, making them very engaged and excited about the possibilities of the future” says Salim Ismail.
