New Zealand Partner Launches New Global Learning Network


New Zealand Partner Launches New Global Learning Network

International entrepreneurs recently announced the launch of Boma, a new global learning and impact network for local decision and change makers.

Boma’s transformational learning experiences are linked directly to outcomes to drive change at a global scale. Headquartered in New York with founding partners in France, Germany and New Zealand, Boma plans to build a global network of partners in 50 countries within 5 years.

New Zealander Kaila Colbin, curator of TEDxChristchurch and the SingularityU New Zealand and Australia Summits, is a founding partner of the new venture. She is joined by TEDx founder Lara Stein, TEDxBerlin founder Stephan Balzer, and TEDxParis founder Michel Lévy-Provençal.

Boma New Zealand, the local country partner of the global network, launches next week with events in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch, with the company’s main operations currently based in Christchurch.

“Boma’s offerings will help individuals, institutions and organizations navigate the many vectors of change affecting our future -- technological, geopolitical, social, environmental, structural and economic,” says Kaila Colbin. “Our industry summits and conferences, executive education, and customized programs are designed explicitly to generate tangible impact and outcomes, creating a better, more sustainable, and more human-centered future.”

The name “Boma” has its origin in Africa. The boma is the enclosure for the community and elders to gather, a sacred space for meaningful discussions, profound decisions and powerful action.

Boma Global is supported by a prestigious brain trust, including the director of the MIT Media Lab Joi Ito, co-founder of ExO Works Salim Ismail, Singularity University faculty member Lisa Kay Solomon, former Google X Chief Business Officer Mo Gawdat and many more. Boma New Zealand faculty include chair of the Superdiversity Centre for Law and Business Mai Chen, founding education director of The Mind Lab by Unitec Chris Clay, serial inventor Grant Ryan, director of the Murchison Widefield Array Professor Melanie Johnston-Hollitt, Singularity University Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies faculty Mandy Simpson, independent director and future strategist Sue Suckling, and microbiologist and scientist Dr Souxsie Wiles.
