The Performance Theatre Singapore 2017

Foreword — In hindsight, everything is predictable. When The Performance Theatre last met in London, many of us were confident we would arrive in Singapore this year with Hillary Clinton as US President and Brexit a distant memory. But events caught us off-guard – the underlying causes invisible. Global challenges call for global solutions. Huge progress is being made – on poverty, child mortality, access to education. But unless leaders can connect to wider constituencies of people, plans can unravel: the Paris Agreement on climate and the TPP trade agreement are uncertain. The Performance Theatre this year is about how we build meaningful connections to those unlike ourselves. How do we listen better? How do we engage the marginalised? Invisible realities could be our biggest opportunities – to renew our organisations and also ourselves.

DR OSVALD BJELLAND FOUNDER, THE PERFORMANCE THEATRE, CHAIRMAN AND CEO, XYNTEO

“Invisible Realities” is all about challenging ourselves as leaders to find new ways to see and hear the world around us. Mindful of this imperative, we have designed the programme to reduce barriers among ourselves and between us and the outside world. I am grateful to have had the support and advice of our three fantastic hosts –Shell, Singapore Economic Development Board, and Unilever – as well as our formidable Advisory Board. The Performance Theatre is a living project, and it’s input from you that helps us evolve from year to year. Tell us what moved you, what you’ll remember, and what you’d like to see next year. We promise to listen.

Welcome to Singapore — The Performance Theatre 2017 is generously hosted by Shell, Singapore Economic Development Board and Unilever. DR BEH SWAN GIN

CHAIRMAN, SINGAPORE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BOARD Singapore is unique because we are a small and young country. We do not assume that what has worked here will work elsewhere. But I am proud of the fact that we work hard to reduce the fault-lines between races and religions, and seek to foster a harmonious society together. I hope that this year’s Performance Theatre will help us step out of our respective echo-chambers and experience the lives of those outside our social and economic circles. By understanding the realities that other people live in, we can be more alive to the challenges that we as a society face today.

GOH SWEE CHEN

CHAIRMAN, SHELL COMPANIES IN SINGAPORE Singapore is a very cosmopolitan city. I hope TPT participants can see Singapore for its beauty – a city that finds space for nature alongside business and the economy to create a country we’re all proud of. As leaders, there are many times we have to confront invisible realities. The world is complex. It presents us with things that aren’t obvious – things that blind-side us. The trick is to learn how to be resilient and to respond very quickly. And in order to respond, we have to acknowledge that there was something we did not see coming.

PIER LUIGI SIGISMONDI

PRESIDENT, SOUTH EAST ASIA AND AUSTRALASIA, UNILEVER There are 630 million people in South East Asia, co-existing across an array of cultures and religions with a great degree of harmony. I think the West can learn something from this. Singapore has high levels of prosperity but you don’t necessarily see it reflected in spending and big displays of wealth. People remain humble but ambitious. From a leadership point of view, people only follow you if you show empathy, respect and a sense of the collective. It’s embedded in the culture of the country. I hope people leave The Performance Theatre inspired and with fresh view about what the world is all about, the humanity that we all have and how we can create a brighter future.

This dinner is a celebration of them and I am delighted that that our previous year’s winners, Arunachalam Muruganantham (2016) and Jeremy Heimans (2015) will join us to announce this year’s winner. But this dinner is also about all of us. We all have our mentors – those we have looked up to and who have shaped us and our views on what it means to be an inspiring leader.

DR JAMIE CHIU FOUNDER, THE BRIGHTLY PROJECT Dr Jamie Chiu is founder of The Brightly Project that creates apps for helping teens struggling with depression. Jamie spent her teenage years feeling at war with herself. Despite suffering from depression, she never got help because she felt ashamed, undeserving, and scared. After a decade of trial and error, Jamie slowly found confidence and learnt to deal with her depression. She became a psychologist to speed up the recovery process for youth who are suffering and to make seeking help less scary. While reaching over 16,000 youth by leading a positive youth development organisation, she realised that in-person support was limited in scale, accessibility, and out-of-step with digital means of communication and interaction among youth. In 2016, Jamie founded The Brightly Project to create apps that spread positivity, show teens they are not alone in their struggles, and that people who care are around them.

DR NTHABISENG LEGOETE FOUNDER, QUALI HEALTH Dr Nthabiseng Legoete is founder of Quali Health and a medical practitioner passionate about improving access to primary healthcare. She has a vision to make quality primary healthcare affordable for all citizens in emerging markets. She founded Quali Health in May 2016, providing affordable high quality healthcare services to the disenfranchised communities of South Africa. Quali’s network of clinics currently services 500 patients a day. Nthabiseng has spent the last 10 years navigating the private health sector: firstly as a medical advisor and product manager in the pharmaceutical division of Roche products, and also as a partner in a medical practice that manages three emergency units in South Africa, where her primary role was that of clinical director.

These leaders are part of the Leadership Vanguard, a Xynteo programme now in its third year that sees catalysts from across industries and around the world collaborate intensively to incubate commercial solutions to the problems that threaten the future of growth.

We are delighted to be joined this year by three students from National University of Singapore, Singapore Management University and Singapore University of Technology and Design who were selected for their submissions to an interview competition on Invisible Realities.
