Daylon Soh builds products and communities. One of them is CreativeMornings Singapore which he co-founded. In 2012, he and his crew received permission to open a local chapter of CreativeMornings, a free monthly breakfast lecture series for creatives that originally started in Brooklyn, New York.
In our interview, Daylon reflects on how he runs CreativeMornings, the lessons he has learned along the way and he shares his thoughts about the future as well as what he would do if he were Prime Minister.
“Running CreativeMornings changed my life. It opened up an entire world for me, I never knew that there were so many people in Singapore that were as excited as I am about the creative industry and the talent around here.”
