‘One of the reason we enjoy working in this office is the team love challenges. We like to take up projects that sound simple on face value but when you take it deeper there are uncreditable challenging’ – Puneet Singh
Mr Puneet Singh mentioned that one of the challenging projects was while working on SMRT project. He provided few insights about the challenges faced. One of the massive challenge was doing 5 years of messaging in 5 weeks. He shared insights about how his team solved the challenges.
Mr Mark Worthington, Managing Director, took over the session. Before he started sharing some insights of the organisation’s significant growth, he engaged the audience. He started the session with a different perspective. He asked what would the audience like to learn from the session. SITP Personnel who attended the event said ‘I am not a PR Professional. I would like to know about communication skills and learn how to communicate around public.’
Mr Mark shared about Bell Pottinger’s strengths and weakness. He also shared the company’s strong competitors. To overcome the competitors, they are building their talents in Asia-Pacific region. He also shared the relationships they build with their clients.
Overall, the audience had a fruitful tea session. They found answers to the questions such as how to overcome challenges, and how the companies could overcome the challenges. The session ended with tasteful muffins and coffee.
