EDP announced as host of TPT 2015

Energias de Portugal (EDP), one of Europe’s major electricity operators, is to host The Performance Theatre 2015 in Lisbon. António Mexia, CEO of EDP, made the announcement at the close of TPT 2014 in Oslo, stating:

“I am delighted that EDP will be hosting next year’s Performance Theatre in Lisbon in June 2015. It is extremely important to take some time out of our daily lives to come together to debate how to be better at leadership and to confront the grand challenges of our time. This year’s theatre in Oslo has been a tremendous success, and I look forward to furthering the debate on what we lead for and what we lead by in my home city next summer.

“What we learned during the two-day theatre in Oslo on Friday and Saturday last week was that leadership must have a human purpose. And good leadership means sacrifice, sharing, and embracing change. The feeling was that this sort of leadership is a scarce commodity, and that the theatre gives leaders the space to have open discussions – a space to rehearse being bold and courageous.”
