About Us

The Performance Theatre is an annual meeting of leaders, thinkers, influencers and doers from around the world.

We gather under a shared conviction that we need to ‘reinvent growth’ – be it personal, commercial or economic – so that it: works with rather than against nature; benefits the many rather than a small elite; and delivers value over the long term as well as the short.

Each year we go to a different location; we have previously travelled to Singapore, London, Oslo, Lisbon, Istanbul, Beijing and beyond. And each year we are guided by a theme.

At a time of uncertainty and disruption, we try to provide a safe, 36-hour space for leaders from different sectors to learn, explore, reflect, and question accepted wisdom.

We draw inspiration from the arts – especially but not exclusively the performing arts – to catalyse introspection and inspire future-fit leadership. We believe that our immersive programme’s use of arts-inspired interaction models help participants engage with leadership challenges in new ways.
