If you could sit down with any historical figure, who would that be, and why?
Excerpt from Roshan’s answer
Mahatma Gandhi, because of his amazing philosophy about love and leadership. Part of what we do at Leaderonomics is building communities of love, so I’d really like to hear what Gandhi has to say about his motivations to love others. Gandhi was also very steadfast in achieving the mission he set out to do, without derailing or going off tangent. Gandhi also redefined what success, greed and giving were about, as well as reframed what action-biased and non-violence were all about.
How this show came about? This TV segment called “Ask Roshan” came about when Matt Naylor, Hafiz Hori & Roshan Thiran were travelling to Johor for a gig with Citibank. During the drive over, Matt set up Facebook Live and took questions from everyone via Facebook to Roshan who spontaneously answered them. This resulted in hundreds of questions popping up and getting live answers from Roshan and even some of the Citibank leaders, including their CEO, Lee Lung Nien.
