National Day Special 2016: S’pore brand giving local companies a leg-up overseas – Consulus shares on TODAY

Aug 15, 2016 | News & Updates

In a special Singapore National Day feature on the Singapore daily newspaper, TODAY, Mr Lawrence Chong, CEO of Consulus, said the absence of a defined style is not a bad thing since this has allowed the Singapore brand to be surprising — a quality that will see companies through the current challenging business environment.
