Think Big. Start Small.

by Red Hong Yi

Red Hong Yi will take us with her through her journey from installations with global brands to well-known personalities. Red only began her career as an artist 5 years ago although her dream was to become one as young as she could remember. What held her back was the fear of failure, and setting an expectation so high it prevented her to begin to produce work. She will share about her mindset then, and how she started - with baby steps - to produce her first artpiece to build up the impressive portfolio of work to what it is today. Red will bring the audience through 4 to 5 of her projects, some which are personal to her. She will share her thought process before beginning - which usually involves big picture or visions for the project, experimenting in small scales, making mistakes, working with the proper resources around her, and then marketing the pieces in a way that would get noticed by people - and connecting with people who are interested in her art.

Red will conclude by leaving the audience with her secret to creativity - that there is no magic sauce. She has learnt that if she waits around for inspiration to strike, it will take too long. The secret is to start now, start small, even if it scares you - and eventually know that one day when she looks back, she’ll know that she took a big step forward.

What You Will Learn

  • Red's breakthrough as an artist
  • Having courage and embracing fear
  • Seeing our world differently through fresh, new eyes
  • Process vs Finished product
  • Leadership and art
3.45 – 4 pm Interval
4 – 4.30 pm
  • Panel Discussion by Joseph Alfred
  • Reach for the Stars with Nimble Feet on the Ground
  • Panellist : Jamil Qureshi, Jenn Lim & Red Hong Yi
  • This is the age where you will need artistic creativity and vision, even in a corporate setting, to paint the future that the organisation wants. No matter how small you are, you can reach for the stars by being nimble on your feet to make those small steps that will bring you to the summit of the mountain to realise your dreams.

    Corporate trailblazers inevitably challenge the dominant belief system and disrupt the dominant logic in businesses. They motivate and drive businesses to innovate and find their way out of their comfort zones to reimagine and reinvent their own corporate plans – not afraid to break the rules or challenge the status quo. This generates a corporate culture based on high performance.

    The emphasis in this culture is not on following rules and avoiding mistakes. It is on collaboration and vision; persistence and creativity. Individuals with a higher purpose bring organisations to the higher peaks of success. And none of this exuberance will probably be possible or sustainable if the organisation is not, by default, a happy organisation.
