Chavalit Frederick Tsao
Chairman, IMC Pan Asia Alliance and Founder & CEO, Octave Singapore, China
Chavalit Tsao, also known as Fred in his network, is the fourth generation steward of a family conglomerate which started in The Shanghai Bund before 1906. Fred joined his family business at the age of twenty after he graduated from the University of Michigan with a Master of Science in Engineering. Fred’s early business successes include starting up a highly profitable palm oil business in Thailand and turning around a bankrupt Thai national shipping line and successfully listing it. In 1995 and at the age of thirty-seven, Fred took over as Chairman of IMC Group. Under his stewardship, the traditional shipping company transformed into a multi-national conglomerate with diverse business interests.
Today, IMC Pan Asia Alliance Group has interests in four strategic business areas:
IMC Industrial, an integrated industrial supply chain group which covers resources, ports, logistics, shipping, offshore engineering, shipyards and other services;
Octave, a sustainable living lifestyle and real estate group; a platform of curated well-being to help people find clarity, harmony and a new level of consciousness and freedom;
Aitia Institute, a learning institute dedicated to shift consciousness of leadership and organization in pursuit of sustainability. It is focused on mindfulness as a sustainable process to build harmonious society;
Heritas Capital Management, an investment and fund management group.
Octave’s concept is the manifestation of numerous years of Fred’s research and contemplation. Octave is a unique blend of eastern wisdom and western sciences. It is a place that responds to our societal need for healing in all relationships and the fostering of a harmonious community. Octave is a platform and an opportunity for anyone who is seeking to be his/her possibilities.
Chris Laszlo, Ph.D.

As one of the originators of the concept of sustainable value, Chris Laszlo, PhD, reframes sustainability as a business opportunity, turning environmental and social risks into drivers of innovation, greater employee engagement, and a new, inimitable source of competitive advantage. Laszlo is the author of five books, including Flourishing Enterprise: The New Spirit of Business (2014), Embedded Sustainability: The Next Big Competitive Advantage (2011), and Sustainable Value: How the World's Leading Companies are Doing Well by Doing Good (2008), all from Stanford University Press. An earlier book, The Sustainable Company (2003, paperback 2005), was published by Island Press. He has numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals and is the general editor of The Business of Sustainability, the second volume of the Encyclopedia of Sustainability (2010). Professionally, Laszlo was elected a Fellow of the International Academy of Management. His book Flourishing Enterprise was chosen as one of the top sustainability books by Sustainable Brands. In 2012 he was selected by his peers to be a “Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business Behavior” by Trust Across America™.
Laszlo received his doctorate with distinction in economics and management science from the University of Paris. He holds Masters Degrees in economics and international affairs from Columbia University and a BA in economics with honors from Swarthmore College.
Sangha by Octave is a mere 1.5 hours away from Shanghai. As an immersive ex-urban retreat location in Suzhou, Sangha is surrounded by water where ancient Wu culture first started. Suzhou is a symbol in China for the artistic, cultural, sophisticated and connected lifestyle.
Sangha spreads over 189,000 square meters of lakefront peninsula on Suzhou’s Yangcheng Lake. It is a place for connected learning designed to enhance your connection with yourself, with others and with nature. Sangha is the distillation of decades of reflection by Octave’s Founder & CEO Chavalit Fred Tsao and is viewed by him as “an expression of a world-view where evolution is supported, and where consciousness can shift to embrace wholeness and connection.”
Sangha is an integrated complex of wellness residences and learning facilities consciously created by master architect Calvin Tsao to be the embodiment of a vision of how such a community might work. One of the spaces within Sangha - The Sanctuary - has won numerous architectural awards for its stunning design, elaborate interiors and exteriors, including UK Blueprint Awards, 2017 APIDA, the A&D Trophy Awards. Built with natural materials, Octave’s aesthetics and design choices for Sangha re-think the whole idea of space utilization, reconsidering the balance between personal space and communal space, to create a greater sense of closeness, of community.
