HIS22 seeks to help people succeed in work and life for the future. Come listen to speakers from Singapore and overseas who will share their knowledge and experience and will be happy to respond to your questions.

The theme for HIS22 is “Forging Success with I3”. We want to help people succeed with their talents and abilities, with family, in society, in business, and in the nation. “Forging” means we get success by effort, with clear purpose, and through determination and tenacity.

I3 stands for Integration, Innovation and Involvement. HIS22 will share ideas on how you can achieve more by integrating the efforts, capacities and capabilities of people, how you can create the future with innovation and creativity, and how we all should not just be talking and criticising but can get involved in making the change we wish for.

HIS22 brings together participants who are leaders and future leaders of business, government, and community groups. It is an interactive programme to discuss the application of honour and honouring for successful business, stable homes, and strong nations.

HIS22 is presented by Honour (Singapore), a not-for-profit organisation that seeks to promote a culture of honour for success. Honour brings about trustworthiness and dependability. Singapore managed to attract investments and talent from all over the world after its sudden independence in 1965 because we could be trusted to honour our word and deliver on our promises. Like Singapore succeeded, we also can personally succeed in life if we can be trusted to do our best in every situation.

A second important point is that Singapore has managed to maintain peace and security which we all enjoy because we respect and care for one another irrespective of race, language, culture or religion. Through mutual respect and honouring each other, we achieve unity in the midst of all the diversity of people, talents and abilities. Relationship founded on acceptance and trust is so important.

But there is a third point. In a world where change is constant and the future is so uncertain and unpredictable, we also need a way to think and live which improves our chances for survival and success. This is where a spirit of innovation and creativity, a willingness to try and to learn and to try again, and a refusal to be put down by failure, will make us the kind of person we are proud to be.

So join us in HIS22!


Honour is living by virtues, which are values in action. When you live an honourable life, you live according to universal virtues, and show great respect to yourself and other people by keeping your word and doing the right thing regardless of what others are doing1.

Honour can thus be said to be the virtue of all virtues, for without honour, one would not live out the values that one believes in.

Honour defines our humanity and it is ours to lose. It is like a muscle – we are born with it, but whether it maintains its functionality and grows depends on whether we choose to use and exercise it.

Trust is the most important currency for the success and sustainability of all long-term relationships regardless of whether it be in the personal, professional, or public space.


For a system of trust to work, one party must first honour the other party with trust, and this in turn must be honoured and reciprocated by the other party, before a relationship of honour can be established and sustained.

While there are arguably many dimensions to Honour, there are two dimensions that are particularly important for the survival and success of relationships and leadership in families, organisations, communities, and nations.
