Virtual Conference “Learning from Nature”

Panama City

22 February 2022

By invitation

For executives and entrepreneurs

The chair of Geoversity’s global advisory board, Verne Harnish, is the founder of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) with 14,000 members. He is also a regular contributor to Young Presidents Organization (YPO) global and YPO chapter events with 30,000 members worldwide.

YPO global and EO are jointly producing a virtual conference in association with Geoversity on the subject of Scale-Up Leadership: Learning from Nature. The gathering, taking place on February 22, is a joint production with EO, a historic first. Verne is hosting the two-hour program in a team with Dr. Tamsin Woolley-Barker, a world authority on Biomimicry and the Dean of the Geoversity School of Biocultural Leadership. Among the keynoters is the Academy Award-winning filmmaker (My Octopus Teacher) Swati Thiyagarajan and Tracy Britt Cool, the co-founder of the innovative business development company Kanbrick.

Rather than lead the conference from one of Geoversity’s partner institutions at Harvard or Stanford, we have picked Panama in recognition of the country’s model Sustainable Tourism Master Plan and our long history of collaboration with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute and indigenous authorities and NGOs. We have selected the Frank Gehry-designed Biomuseo to serve as the world symbol and originating studio for this historic event.
