Festival of Thought coming to Singapore
What is Festival of Thought?
Your City. Your Workplace. Your Questions.
Festival of Thought emerged from a series of events hosted by banking and financial institutions in Canary Wharf, London in 2015. Some of the world’s largest banks, financial advisory institutions and global industrial companies took part in engaging discussions around some of the big questions often asked by business people today. Since 2015, Festivals have taken place amongst the corporate communities of a number of global cities, including Chicago, Cape Town and Johannesburg – moving to Singapore and Zurich in 2019 and Tampa Bay in 2020.

Hosted at your workplace and facilitated by world-class thinkers and speakers from RZIM and other networks, Festival of Thought celebrates questions of truth and purpose in business. Festival of Thought creates a unique and inclusive atmosphere of dialogue and generates what several partner companies have described as a learning opportunity contributing to the Continuing Professional Development for attendees. Here is a way of enhancing understanding of values in business, moving beyond mere language towards something which may transform lives and culture.
Festival of Thought celebrates your questions – the questions of your city, your workplace, your life. Questions of meaning, morality, integrity, faith and culture. Questions we wish could be addressed more often but have little opportunity to consider most of the time – especially at work. Does integrity matter? Where is the meaning and purpose in my career? How can I bring my whole self to work? Festival of Thought addresses these questions in ways which often bring new insight, alongside perspectives from the Christian world-view. The period of open Q&A at the end of every event is always a highlight.
