About Keynote Speaker Sally Dominguez

Sally Dominguez is a specialist in innovation strategy, and in activating an exponential (10X) mindset.  An Inventor, Architect, Journalist and Educator with 7 international product awards, she has been named one of Australia’s “50 for the Future” entrepreneurs in the USA. Sally has judged and hosted TV  invention shows The New Inventors and Australia’s Greatest Inventions,  is a Car of the Year judge and co-hosts TheNextBillionCars podcast.  Her Nest highchair design is held in the Powerhouse Museum and her HOG water tank in the Museum of New York.  Sally’s Adventurous Thinking innovation strategy runs as a workshop at Stanford and has been implemented at NASA, ClifBar, Genentech, Breville, NSW State education  and by many startups in Brazil and the USA.

In 2019, as Program Director for Innovation, Strategy and Design at Singularity University, Sally integrated Adventurous Thinking as Singularity’s 10X mindset strategy to level up human ingenuity as a response to exponential change.  In addition Sally spearheaded futurist research for Singularity centred on 2030 and key trends and developments in 10X technologies and the expected human responses to them. Sally’s research focuses on new developments in trust, resilience, leadership, education and sustainability.  Sally continues to customize exponential thinking innovation workshops and keynotes for businesses and institutions worldwide.

As an thought leader and educator Sally has updated Design Thinking with her ADVENTUROUS THINKING methodology, designed to promote the agile mindset needed for consistently innovative practices. The key difference is in timing: unlike Design thinking which is reactive ADVENTUROUS THINKING is a proactive, disruptive strategy based on the theory of multiple intelligences. The Five Lens tools are used to alternately converge and proliferate thinking, enabling users to think outside their default “expert” neural pathways, and re-igniting the curious mindset that is the key to consistent innovation. ADVENTUROUS THINKING and Sally’s associated research has been used internationally through Singularity University and Start-se, and by the Shenzhen government, Genentech, Sandisk, Clif Bar and other corporates and was presented as part of the SXSW Frugal Innovation panel. Sally has taught ADVENTUROUS THINKING as a means to integrate innovation into the Australian school curriculum for the Association of Independent Schools and the Catholic Schools Office.

Sally was humorous, very entertaining and was perfect for the event. Her intelligence and quick wit was a hit with delegates. Her preparation for the event was brilliant.

Sally’s knowledge of the domain, intelligence, skills at stimulating understanding, and enthusiasm are thoroughly infectious. I don’t believe it’s possible to be alive and also be bored in her workshop. In advance, I thought I “should” take this workshop; in fact, I adored it.

I’ve done a bit of reading in related areas, including works by several Stanford authors (and dozens of others). I did not expect to learn so many intriguing new insights that I hadn’t already encountered. Sally is a truly original thinker who turns her ideas into elegant, valuable products. It was a thrill to see her in action.

Sally’s course was a fantastic course for maximizing the time and efficacy of anyone who intends to think about how to solve anything. Both infinitely applicable, and immediately useful for the burning issues we each personally brought to the table. In just two days, Sally led us into a refreshing space in which it was safe to think outside the traditional and unwittingly self-imposed constraints that were holding back our best solutions, and handed us the tools to do this again and again.
