Tan Chee Koon,
former CEO,
National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre

Tan Chee Koon

Willie burst onto the non-profit scene in Singapore in a substantive way when he became chairman of the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) in 2002 and left an indelible mark on the scene. If SALT, the magazine that he started was regularly looked forward to, it was not least because of his column which has stirred, provoked and moved the charity scene in Singapore.

He has a way of putting things within a framework, connecting seemingly unrelated dots in his attempt to make sense of all that is going on in and around the sector here and elsewhere.  What is compelling is that he does not indulge in mere pontification, but backs up his conclusions with considered research into global trends.   You may or may not agree with his resultant insights but you cannot ignore the thinking that went into it.  He challenges your own thinking, and that is what the non-profit sector critically needs at this juncture more than ever– critical thinking around critical issues beyond the doing.

This book is a recommended read for all those who work in the sector, who are thinking of crossing into the sector as well as those who are contributors to and keen observers of the fascinating not-for-profit world.
