Located 1,100 metres above sea level and 700 metres above lake Ringedalsvatnet in Skjeggedal, the cliff was formed some 10,000 years ago during the ice age. Today, it is a magnet for adventurers willing to make the eight-hour hike to its precipice to contemplate the beauty of our planet and our small, but impactful, presence on it.

T HE H U M A N L E N S By gathering, bending and focusing light, our eyes equip us to interpret and navigate our environment. At the same time the human eye plays a powerful role in social interaction – some scientists contend that our ability to use our eyes to communicate and ultimately cooperate has been an important driver of our species’ evolution. So as we seek to make meaning in a rapidly changing world and try to drive human progress forward, the human eye provides us with a powerful metaphor.

The Performance Theatre’s aim is to inspire the leadership required to realise a new kind of growth, capable of delivering value across not just quarters but generations, to both stakeholders and society as a whole. Each year we bring together leaders from across sectors, industries, disciplines and geographies to debate the defining leadership challenges of our time.

The human lens Words of welcome from The Performance Theatre Foundation’s founder and vice chairman, Osvald Bjelland 08

Before it was enough for leaders to optimise, to drive productivity and maximise efficiencies within the boundaries of their organisations and industries. This could make them successful. This is no longer enough. Resource scarcity, climate change, deepening inequality, social disquiet – these are all challenges that make organisational walls irrelevant. In a world of systems-sized problems, leaders must go beyond acts of incrementalism to deliver a broader kind of value, to more people over a longer time frame. As the grand challenges evolve, so must our leadership. Leaders who stand still will become irrelevant and have to leave the stage. Enabling this new leadership, relevant to today’s connected, uncertain world, is the purpose of The Performance Theatre. We want to identify the leaders at the vanguard of change and support them as they engineer and drive transformation. This year, we are guided by our theme, ‘Leadership with a human purpose’. The more I reflect, the more I see that by looking at our challenges through a human lens we can uncover new opportunities to enable human progress without so much waste, destruction and exclusion. As Marcel Proust once said, “The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

In focus_ Despite making his fortune manufacturing explosives, Alfred Nobel dedicated his estate to the foundation of five annual prizes, including one for peace. In his will, he wrote that the recipient ought to “…have done the most or the best work for fraternity between the nations...” In 1993, shortly following the dissolution of apartheid in South Africa, Nelson Mandela and F W De Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Mandela valued justice for all South Africans above personal glory, popularity, and even his own freedom. De Klerk was willing to sacrifice his own advantage for the sake of the common good. Prescient leaders, whether in politics or business, know that the success of the group is only as great as the dignity afforded its lowliest member.

Dear guests, Economic growth is the engine of human progress. It has taken billions around the world out of poverty, ill-health and ignorance into prosperity, wellbeing and knowledge. It has nourished the arts, the sciences and a global network of connectivity between peoples and nations. It has transformed humanity’s way of life for the better. That is a record which should be lauded, but we must not rest on its glorious laurels. The model which has served mankind so well is in

As the custodian of some of the world’s largest hydrocarbon reserves, Norway knows a thing or two about progress, prosperity and reinvention. Oslo is also the home of the Nobel Peace Prize, which honours the world’s most extraordinary leaders. I can think of no more inspirational place to reflect on this year’s theme: leadership with a human purpose. I look forward to a stimulating and challenging dialogue with friends old and new. Welcome to The Performance Theatre.

need of an update. A changing climate, disinterested electorates and stubbornly persistent poverty demand our attention. Growth must deliver value not just to shareholders, but to society as a whole. That is why we meet here at The Performance Theatre, which exists to educate, challenge and inspire. It is not a place for complacency or cliché, but one in which we gather for honest reflection on our weaknesses, strengths and potential as leaders. It has one ambitious goal: to inspire leaders to deliver a new kind of growth. In pursuit of that goal, we have met in some of the world’s greatest cities, each with their own histories of success, failure and upheaval. Venice, Beijing, London and Istanbul were the homes of great empires that generated extraordinary progress and prosperity, but which have now reinvented themselves for a changed world. This year, The Performance Theatre returns to its roots in Oslo,

IN FOCUS HENRIK IBSEN The Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen directed a critical eye at the status quo at a time when European theatre stuck to strict moral codes on family values and gender roles. Ibsen explored the reality of life for people caged by these social norms and, through his work, became a pioneer for women’s rights. As a result, many of his plays were seen as controversial at the time. Today, Ibsen is considered one of the founders of Modernism in the theatre and is the most frequently performed dramatist in the world after Shakespeare.

Why Oslo? This year we meet in Oslo, Norway, the land of the midnight sun, fjords and forests. But there is more to this story. This year it is two centuries since the Norwegian constitution came into force, setting off a strong tradition of institution-building. With a past shaded by occupation, Norway has become a vocal and credible ambassador for peace, harmony and dignity. And the country has an unrivalled exploration streak – from the Vikings to its famous polar adventurers, Norwegians are, like The Performance Theatre, curious about what’s beyond the horizon. At the same time, Norway knows the value of growth. Just 40 years ago the country was one of Europe’s poorest; today it is the most developed in the world.

Orkla is a leading supplier of branded consumer goods and concept solutions to the grocery and out-of-home sectors in the Nordic and Baltic regions. In addition, the group holds good positions in certain product categories in India, the Czech Republic, Austria, Poland and Russia. The company is also a major supplier to the European bakery market. Orkla’s vision is to improve everyday life with healthier and more enjoyable local brands. The group also operates in the aluminium, hydropower and real estate sectors. As at 31 December 2013, Orkla had around 17,000 employees. The group’s turnover in 2013 totalled NOK 33 billion.

We’re privileged to open Act Four with a bespoke performance by acclaimed Norwegian actress Juni Dahr. Juni will perform extracts from “Ibsen Women – put an eagle in a cage”, which explores Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen’s heroines, intertwined with Juni’s personal reflections. The piece draws particular inspiration from the line, “Put an eagle in a cage and it will bite the bars whether they are of iron or gold,” spoken by Hjørdis in ‘The Vikings of Helgeland’. Male dominance and social constraints placed on women concerned Ibsen deeply, and Juni’s performance examines Nora from A Doll’s House and Hjørdis’ strength and vulnerability, and their longing for freedom – an underlying theme in much of Ibsen’s drama. Juni says: “Henrik Ibsen is the genius that tempts us to explore his women, looking for the essence, the source and the spirit that makes these female characters so fascinating even today.” We join his heroines as they bite, scratch and rattle at the bars of their cages, before breaking free.

In times of transition the requirements for leadership change: leaders who excel at operating the status quo give way to leaders who forge completely new paths, defying assumptions about the world and overturning conventional wisdom. As we try to move from one way of growing to another model capable of delivering

sustained value to larger numbers of people, this leadership quality grows in importance. We believe that the ability to challenge assumptions will be a hallmark of the leadership we need – ‘leadership

FRIDAY 13 JUNE 13.00-16.00 Lunch served during Dialogues at various venues

At the heart of any Performance Theatre there beats a series of ‘Dialogues’, where intimate groups of participants discuss topics connected to our overarching theme.

29

The Dialogues are held at inspiring venues across our host city, from historic buildings to new and innovative spaces, all connected to our topics. THE OSLO DIALOGUES: DIALOGUE 1: REDUCING INEQUALITY FOR EMPOWERING SOCIETY DIALOGUE 2: LONG-TERM AND ETHICAL INVESTING DIALOGUE 3: THE CHALLENGE OF INTEGRATION DIALOGUE 4: EDUCATION AND SKILLS DIALOGUE 5: LEADERSHIP IN AN AGE OF WICKED PROBLEMS AND WICKED PROGRESS

ASKELADDEN Askeladden (Ash Lad) is the archetypal hero of many Norwegian folktales. Dismissed as a daydreamer who spends his days sat by the fireplace poking at the ashes, lost in thought, it is his seemingly more successful brothers who must vanquish the trolls or save the princess. But when their conventional thinking and self-centred bravado leads to failure, it is up to Askeladden – the underdog – to venture into the deepest, darkest depths of the forest to save the day. But Askeladden does things differently. He collaborates with the characters he meets along the way. He uses shared knowledge, tools and creative thinking to overcome the problem or crisis – not by going it alone, but by doing it together.

Wealth disparities, on both a global and national level, have been hitting the headlines recently, amid evidence that inequality has grown dramatically over the last few decades – the 85 richest people in the world now own as much as the poorest 3.5 billion. Thomas Piketty’s book, ‘Capital in the 21st century’, has thrown more fuel on the fire by

claiming that the unprecedented levels of inequality today are a direct result of free capitalism, and that inequality actively hinders the growth we need. Critics counter that some inequality is essential for economic growth. Others claim that inequality was

MODERATOR Jeremy Hillman Director, external communications, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

an underlying cause of many of our recent problems, such as the financial crisis of 2008, the ongoing war in Syria and the resource curse in many developing nations. Within all this debate one thing is clear: inequality is a key feature of today’s leadership context.

CONTRIBUTORS Dr Rita E Hauser Chair, International Peace Institute, and president, The Hauser Foundation The Right Honourable David Miliband President and CEO, International Rescue Committee and former UK Foreign Secretary

This Oslo Dialogue will examine the debate around inequality more closely and consider what tools we can use to address it. The session will also consider how globalisation and the rise of social media add other dimensions to inequality, exacerbating associated issues such as health impacts, terrorism and economic instability while at the same time revealing new solutions through connectivity, the democratisation of information and widening access to education.

In focus_ Norway knows the value of growth. Just 40 years ago the country was one of Europe’s poorest; today it is the most developed in the world. The economy has recently clocked only modest growth figures, yet the country’s long-tern approach to investment has led to high equality, demonstrating the importance of quality over quantity in evaluating, and choosing, growth strategies. At the same time, Norway faces clear challenges. Its economy has grown dependent on fossil fuels just as the world is trying to lessen their dominance. Like the rest of the world, Norway needs a new way of growing. Its leaders will need to draw on the strengths of the nation to build the next chapter in its growth story.

This Oslo Dialogue will explore the barriers preventing institutional investors from taking a long-term view, and how can they be overcome. The session will seek to understand how investors can incentivise and support changes in corporate behaviour and consider how leaders in the business and investment community can move beyond ‘wouldn’t it be nice’ to drive real, substantive change.

Wicked problems are challenges that seem impossible to solve because of their extreme complexity. They defy easy resolution: intricate interdependencies mean fixes in one sphere can create trouble in another. We live in an age of wicked problems.

CO-MODERATORS Veronica Lie Head of communications, Xyntéo Rick Wheatley Head of innovation, Xyntéo

At the same time, we don't have to look hard to see the true potential of human ingenuity. We have risen to formidable challenges before and, in some cases, leaders today are driving quite astonishing change, in everything from energy and power to communications and mobility. For all the wicked problems, there is also wicked progress.

This Dialogue will explore the intersection between wicked problems and wicked progress. Why are we not harnessing our full potential to solve the truly important, perhaps even existential, problems? The next decade could be our 'Churchill moment'. Will our leaders rise to the challenge or will we continue to wait for 'someone' to act?

GOING PLACES The famous V-formation adopted by migrating birds is not just a quirk of nature – birds fly like this because it saves both time and energy. It’s believed that birds can boost their range by up to 71 per cent by flying in a V-formation and by taking turns to lead at the front. If a bird falls out of formation, it experiences increased drag and resistance. For us, this formation has symbolic relevance – it’s the collaborative nature of the birds’ leadership that makes them so successful.

She was born on 12 July 1997 in Mingora, Pakistan, and, as a child, became an advocate for girls‘ education. In early 2009, Ms Yousafzai began blogging for the BBC about living under the Taliban‘s threats to deny her an education. In order to hide her identity, she used the name Gul Makai. However, she was revealed to be the BBC blogger in December

of that year, which resulted in the Taliban issuing a death threat against her. On 9 October 2012 a gunman shot Ms Yousafzai when she was travelling home from school. She survived, and has continued to speak out on the importance of education during her recovery. She gave a speech at the United Nations on her 16th birthday, in 2013. She has also written an autobiography, ‘I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban‘, which was released in

October 2013. Unfortunately, the Taliban still considers Ms Yousafzai a target. Despite the Taliban's threats, Ms Yousafzai remains a staunch advocate for the power of education. On 10 October 2013, in acknowledgement of her work, the European Parliament awarded Ms Yousafzai the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought. That same year, she was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. She didn‘t win the prize, but was named a nominee again in March 2014.

supply, with a focus on clean generation, either through hydro projects in Portugal and Brazil, or through worldleading clean energy developer EDP Renewables. EDP’s mission is based on three fundamental aspects: creation of shareholder value, customer orientation, and focus on the company’s human potential. The aim is to be the most competitive and efficient electricity and gas operator on the Iberian Peninsula.

António Mexia CEO, EDP

To achieve this goal, EDP undertakes the management of its activities with an integrated approach and unique vision. EDP develops its core business activities in a sector that is vital to economic and social development – the electricity sector. In addition, by operating in a highly technological sector, the companies of the EDP Group are also sources of technical skill and innovation. For instance, EDP has developed the world's first prototype for a floating wind turbine and was named the number one European smart grid project, with InnovCity. Energy is one of the major drivers of development of modern society. Promoting access to this asset is in the framework of the Millennium Development Goals, which promote the fight against social exclusion and improve the safety and quality of life of a significant portion of the world’s population. With a clear vision of its role in society and its relationship with its stakeholders, EDP believes that it can maximise its contribution

“EDP is very pleased to partner with The Performance Theatre and to host the 2015 theatre in Lisbon. We see exciting times ahead and look forward to contributing with our vision.”

through the interconnection of seemingly distinct areas such as economy, culture, art, education, science and social innovation. EDP has natural synergies with The Performance Theatre, which will allow an infusion of ideas and international creativity into The Performance Theatre Foundation’s mission.
