Background of Consulus in Singapore
In 2004, the partners of three separate companies specialising in strategy, public relations and graphic design came together to offer a more sustainable form of consultancy for companies.
The founding philosophy was that companies needed an inside-out approach to redesign their business models so that they could sustain their gains to be more competitive. Consulus was thus founded on 21st June 2004. It was built on the premise of management consultants and designers coming together and building up internal teams and processes for companies to maximise their potential.
Since then, Consulus has served leading organisations from New York to Singapore. Clients range from billion dollar companies – like SembCorp, MTU, Millennium Hotels & Resorts and Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam – to unique experiences such as, myVillage and family enterprises such as Cyclect. It has also served public institutions such as Tan Tock Seng Hospital, IE Singapore, the National University of Singapore and business owners and founders who want to shape the corporate and consumer world.
Through a variety of channels, such as Shape the World Conference which has been conducted in six countries reaching 5000 individuals, Consulus brings new ideas in business and design so that a new Asia will emerge. Additionally, a quarterly newsletter The Columnist reaches out to 200,000 leaders and professionals offering new solutions and insights on business, design and world affairs.
The company has also worked with local trade associations such as SCCCI, SBF, SMA and ASME to help companies re-imagine their business models and brands. Consulus Singapore has been recognised as a leading creative firm and won Singapore Design Awards and Singapore Good Design Mark .

ASEAN, a region of rich diversity faced with rising fault lines means it cannot be business as usual for Smart City initiatives. These initiatives cannot appear to be tone deaf and will need more than just a tech or infrastructure-led approach. It will require smart governance, inclusive economic and urban development strategies. Here are some thoughts from our experience in advising and working on Smart City projects in the region.

Lawrence Chong, CEO of Consulus, shared experiences and insights on how design is a key driver of innovation, and how it has a transformative impact on individuals and corporations, creating game-changing possibilities for a better world, at the Innovation by Design Conference 2017 in Singapore on March 8.
“My view is the government can assist but the business owners will need to adopt an open mindset to change and take relevant risks to reinvent themselves,” said Lawrence Chong, CEO of Consulus.
As hard as it is, we need to take a moment to step outside ourselves, view the world through the eyes of our opponents, see what they see, understand their fears, concerns and motivation.
Chong is proud to serve as a judge of SPBA for the fifth time. This year, he was invited to sit on the Judging Panel for SPBA – Heritage Brands, SPBA – Regional Brands and SPBA – Special Merit.
