Malcolm Gladwell is swinging by Singapore again! The international best-selling author of “The Tipping Point“, “Blink”, “Outliers” and “What the Dog Saw” will be speaking at the upcoming Critical Ingredients To Unlimited Success (CITUS) event held on 20 August 2010 at the Singapore Expo. He will be joined by “The Wisdom of Crowds” author James Surowiecki (interestingly, both write for The New Yorker), and together will challenge their Singapore audience to think beyond traditional and conventional views about leadership and success.
Successful people are able to make good choices and identify opportunities which others can’t see, Gladwell says, but more importantly, successful people made those choices because they were looking to seek satisfaction and meaning in their work, and not because they were in pursuit of material success. It’ll be interesting to see how that message resonates with materialistic Singaporeans.
