Only hours before our production of A Doctor in Spite of Himself was set to open in the Roda Theatre, Berkeley Rep was happy to host the monthly Infusion Lunch. This month's speaker was Salim Ismail, the founding executive director of Singularity University, a new leadership-training program for up-and-coming leaders in the technological world. Salim drew what seemed like droves of tech-savvy individuals to the upper Roda lobby, and they all were completely engrossed by his stories and advice. Check out this photo taken by our director of marketing and communications, Robert Sweibel:
Much of Salim's talk centered on the changing facets of higher education, especially with emerging technology. Singularity University, based in the South Bay, has a mission is to assemble, educate, and inspire a new generation of leaders who strive to understand and utilize exponentially advancing technologies to address humanity’s grand challenges. As an organization that reaps the benefits of collaboration every day, we were proud to host Salim and the Berkeley Startup Cluster at the Infusion Lunch.
