Think Big, Think Different, And Why Should We Even Care
by Chew Zhun Yee (Alice Smith’s Alumnus)
As Zig Ziglar proclaims, “Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”
International Think Big Summit (ITBS) is Malaysia’s singular platform to revolutionize thinking and tackle the deprivation of creative inquiry in the society, introducing an attitude to inquire, to think outside the ordinary, and to challenge the unobserved to the people; a skill to be successful in life. You will also get a chance to learn about the fundamental knowledge and big questions in various fields of Sciences and Humanities. Ultimately the thought-stimulating event creates a sense of purpose in life and helps us grow into more creative and holistic people.
“More often than not, we are taught to deliver what we learned rather than change expectations. We are taught to accept and fit into the structure and norms. Our conscious thoughts are paralysed by unidentified beliefs and undefined contradictions, but that only drives us further away from understanding the beauty of knowledge and truths. In fact, we should understand things for ourselves, to liberate our minds from prejudices and free up spaces for more possibilities. I feel the need to inspire more people to care about what consumes our minds and cultivating a sense of curiosity”, said Chew Zhun Yee, the co-founder of the society and the event.
The event will encompass inspiring talks, creative workshops, follow by an open floor discussion, featuring prestigious international professors, doctorates and leaders from National University of Singapore, Yale-NUS College, Oxford University and Duke-NUS University, just to name a few.
