In an era of quick turnarounds and fast-moving ideas, what does it take to make an unheard idea become the talk of the town? Sorelle Henricus takes us methodically through the phenomenon of the Tipping Point and the ingredients necessary to engineer one. She delivers a call for us be aware of and responsible for the little actions we take, and to not underestimate the power we have as individuals in influencing the world around us.

Sorelle Henricus is a PhD Research Scholar at the Department of English Language and Literature at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Her work and doctoral project focuses on the philosophical premise of a sustained engagement with the different ways we can produce and perceive knowledge in a modern and contemporary context. With today’s digital and techno-science culture, she also seeks to unravel the importance of social media and the internet as the axis of communication and change. In addition to teaching duties at the English Department she is also an Associate Fellow at Tembusu College, NUS.
