This is the launch event for the 2016 inaugural edition of The Birthday Book: What is Singapore's Next Big Thing?
“What is Singapore’s Next Big Thing?” An intellectual salvo from young and passionate Singaporeans inhabiting different slices of Singapore society, The Birthday Book is a collection of 51 essays presented as a birthday gift to the nation and its people. What are the milestones that Singapore is headed into – the next big things – in the view of this inaugural group of contributors?
These individuals, younger than 45, will inherit leadership roles in their respective domains of expertise. Their essays come together as a compact and essential digest of introspections and outward projections, drawing on a shared past and projecting forward into our collective future.
7:00pm – Light refreshments
7:30pm – “World Café” discussion on the various sections of the book (which we will unveil at the launch, so there's a surprise for everyone)
8:30pm – Closing address and book signing
The event will be at The Pod.
