Meet Viswa. One of Singapore’s influential thinkers, an opinion leader and advocate of its evolving sociopolitical space.
With over 30 years of media experience – as practitioner and policy maker - Viswa Sadasivan is best known to Singapore society as the face of the (then) Singapore Broadcasting Corporation’s breakthrough news and current affairs programmes such as Talking Point, Feedback and Today in Parliament. He has interviewed Asia’s top business and political leaders, including Singapore’s first Prime Minister, the late Lee Kuan Yew, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, the late Tunku Abdul Rahman and Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s longest serving premier.
A former Nominated Member of Parliament, Viswa has a strong appreciation for public policy and ground sentiment. A firebrand and an astute communicator, he continues to champion economic, political and civic education through collaboration, advocacy and measured reform. He has served on several major national committees on economic and policy matters, raising critical issues for collective, serious debate.
“Viswa is an expert communicator and a trainer consultant who can transverse at the strategic level of engagement, yet be equally comfortable with tactical issues.
His ability to relate to the audience with appropriate case studies and examples reflects the breadth of his experience and depth of understanding in the organisation he consults for.
The long-standing partnership between Viswa and STRATEGIC MOVES with MINDEF is testimony that he is viewed favourably as one of the top trainer consultants in this industry.”
