FacultyMeet the People Behind The Corporate Theatre

Thought Leaders

The Corporate Theatre’s mission is to help people re-discover in themselves the human capabilities that are vital to success in these times of turbulence and connectivity. We show them how to find and use their powers of inspiration at the deepest and strongest levels. The result is a culture of inspiration, where teams attain higher performance, and customers and consumers connect through human touch points and brands of integrity.

To do this well means that we must constantly challenge our own assumptions and thinking; continuously explore new territories; and stay connected to a relationship economy in a turbulent world. To help us in this endeavor, some great minds have been good enough to accept our invitation to think big, to think new and to explore what might or could evolve.

These are our Thought Leaders. Our Thought Leaders are people who are known for their wisdom, experience and knowledge, and who never stand still for long. They represent politics, economics, business, and the humanities.

Together with our Thought Leaders we will stay at the centre of the necessary dialogues of today.
