Bambajam

My friends, I wanted to share a really remarkable moment for two of my great friends Duncan and Lee Ann McKee. Nine years ago, they launched STIX, Motivation Through Music.

Messaging my Own Company – a Lesson Learned

Messaging and positioning, defining a company story, mission statement, vision statement

Since launching SAJE in 2006, I’ve gone through a few messaging revamps. I haven’t done this because I got it “wrong” in the early days, I quite simply started out focused on one area – messaging and positioning. But I’ve come to the conclusion that you can’t work full time on this – there just…

Facebook Corporate Values

I’ve been undertaking extensive research on corporate values across companies all over the world – large and small.

Logos and taglines

I’ve been struggling with ‘Toys “R” Us’ in Singapore recently. It’s a place I have to visit on a regular basis – not just because I have two young sons, but also because Singapore is one of those places where you are constantly invited to kids’ birthday parties and as such, there are always presents…

Scoot is on Message

Scoot on Message

In April 2012, Singaporean travellers will have the option of a new low cost airline within the competitive mix – Scoot. I recently heard the CEO, Campbell Wilson interviewed on radio, and I have to say, I was pretty impressed. This is a company that has thought very deeply about what Scoot means and how…
