Enterprise Customer Stories: TEN Inspires Exponential Leadership in Dutch Business Sector, Introducing CEOs to the Power of Exponential Technologies

In 2010, The Executive Network (TEN) challenged itself to both become the leading Dutch executive search and recruitment firm and build better business leaders in the Netherlands. The company invested in inspiring the leaders in their market by organizing events for CEOs and board members on topics linked to the needs of the guests, their business models, and markets. But demand for the events quickly outstripped the ability of the new firm to keep up with requests.

After learning about Singularity University (SU) in 2013, TEN partnered with SU to build a program to educate Dutch executives in the TEN community about exponential thinking for global impact.

Read this case study to find out how together SU and TEN have empowered a cross-industry network of more than 300 CEOs and board members (and counting!) in the Netherlands to recognize and leverage opportunities presented by exponential technologies and learn how TEN earned its position as the leading executive search firm in the Netherlands.


At Singularity University, we elevate exceptional companies into exponential enterprises that can thrive amid chaos and uncertainty, and we provide the tools, frameworks, and leadership models to help you future-proof your organization.

See how we can help transform your organization into an exponential enterprise with leaders who are prepared to tackle the coming changes and seize new opportunities.
