What are the biggest ‘take-aways’ that audiences will pick up?
I’ll talk about my mantra of revolutionary goals and evolutionary steps. Organisations have to be able to imagine themselves as fundamentally different from where they are today. And they have to know how to build that vision starting from where they are today.
Is the glass half full, or half empty?
It’s half-full and getting fuller. There are so many organisations with so many creative people in the world. Anyone who says you can’t build something new is not looking in the right places.
What are you most looking forward to doing in Singapore while you are here?
Singaporeans are the world’s greatest shoppers. I’ll try to emulate that and find a gift for my wife.
