Post-pandemic music and theater performances are likely to use a hybrid model, according to the chief executive of one of Singapore’s largest arts centers.
Yvonne Tham, CEO of Esplanade, told CNBC’s “Street Signs Asia” that a mixture of in-person and streamed performances are set to be common in the future.
“Many artists are really open now to what’s known as hybrid, which (means they) may be performing in a particular space in a particular time, but how does that performance have an afterlife? And that’s a question we’ve been asking ourselves even as we’ve been producing lots of digital programs,” Tham said on Monday.
“We’re going to see festivals in future that are not just limited by time and space, therefore what goes on to complement that live experience in the digital space becomes quite important,” she added.
Pre-pandemic, around 3,000 performances took place annually at the Esplanade and it

“We are witnessing the dawn of a new age,” HP CEO Enrique Lores said at the company’s Reinvent conference this year. Many of the changes that business leaders planned to transition into over the next few years are here now, and they’re being accepted seamlessly due to the pandemic from constant video conferencing to working from home.
On the latest episode of “Leadership Next,” the Fortune podcast about the changing roles of business leadership, Lores tells cohosts Alan Murray and Ellen McGirt that the fast pace of change has affected not only business and technology, but also the personal lives of employees and managers alike. That, he says, necessitates the development of a more approachable
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said in an interview Monday that the company is “looking” at its QAnon policy, but stopped short of committing to an outright ban as Facebook did last week.
In an interview on the Boss Files podcast with CNN anchor Poppy Harlow, Wojcicki said YouTube is “looking very closely at QAnon” and has already “implemented a large number of different policies that have helped to maintain that in a responsible way.”
As it stands, YouTube, which is owned by Google, only removes QAnon content when it violates other policies related to hate or harassment, and instead tries to de-amplify “borderline” content that doesn’t explicitly break its rules.
On why YouTube takes a less aggressive approach than Facebook, Wojcicki said: “I think the way to approach it is by
Last month, Omnicom revamped leadership at two of its media agencies, appointing Ralph Pardo as CEO of Hearts & Science and Catherine Sullivan as CEO of PHD.
Pardo succeeded Erin Matts in the role, who is moving into another role within Omnicom. Matts was named Hearts & Science CEO in 2019, when Scott Hagedorn was promoted to Omnicom Media Group’s North America CEO.
Adweek caught up with Pardo, a 12-year Omnicom veteran, to ask some questions about his new role, his previous one leading the AT&T account through an integrated cross-agency team, and media agencies’ role in helping clients navigate these turbulent times.
This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity and brevity.
What do you hope to bring to this role and how do you envision evolving Hearts & Science? On a personal level, I want to bring a bit of confidence and swagger to the agency. I

Twilio is making its acquisition of fellow cloud computing company Segment official.
San Francisco-based Twilio announced early on Monday that it had signed a definitive agreement to acquire Segment for $3.2 billion in an all-stock deal. The deal is expected to close in Twilio’s fourth fiscal quarter, the company said.
Forbes first broke the news of the pending acquisition on Friday.
In a joint interview with Forbes on Sunday night, Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson described the deal as the next step for a service that’s spent the last decade-plus “taking communications and breaking it down into building blocks” for developers to reach their own business’ customers.
