In an upcoming sold-out UC Connect public lecture, Singularity University's New Zealand Ambassador will give a startling look at the dramatic implications of exponential technologies, and some insight into how we might prepare for this dynamically changing world.

Kaila Colbin is the New Zealand Ambassador for Singularity University. She is also a co-founder and Chair of the non-profit Ministry of Awesome, the starting point to make things happen in Christchurch, and the Curator of TEDxChristchurch.

She is also Chair of the Board of the New York-based Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, Deputy Chair of CORE Education Ltd, and a member of the Advisory Board for Te Pūtahi - Christchurch centre for architecture and city-making.

A native New Yorker, Kaila is fluent in English, Spanish, French and Italian, holds a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Administration from Cornell University and has been a serial entrepreneur since the age of 22. Her purpose in life is to be an uplifting presence.
