Consulus was founded in Singapore on 21st June 2004
Lawrence Chong, Jeffrey Chiu, Gim Lee and Satvinder founded Consulus combining strategy, public relations and design into a new entity aimed at helping companies transform from the inside-out. The name Consulus is a combination of two latin words: “Consul” which is leader and “Oculus” which refers to the opening at the top of the dome at the Pantheon. The name represented the founders’ desire to gather a circle of leaders to help companies succeed globally.
