- Future Tense: A podcast programme that offers insights on what’s to come for Asia and the world with the evolution of technology. It aims to get listeners comfortable with the future as they hear from business leaders who tackle big questions on sustainability, innovation, fintech, and more. As people in Singapore gradually return to their workplaces, which would have changed considerably with new health and safety measures implemented, the first Future Tense episode kicks off a discussion on the “Future of Work” and features guests Ben Hamley, Future of Work Lead, Asia-Pacific, JLL; Lynn Dang, HR Lead, Microsoft Singapore; and Borko Kovacevic, CMO & COO, Microsoft Singapore.
- In The Moment: A weekly experiential vlog that offers a more hyper-local Singapore perspective. Here, viewers join presenter Nadia JH to discover change-makers, community interest groups, and go on new experiences around the little red dot. Topics are curated via social listening and analysis of behavioural data, which ensure that the shows are of timely relevance to the audience. As an example, the episode “Setting sail in Singapore” took viewers on a picturesque trip around Singapore’s iconic Marina Bay, which inspired many to sign up for DBS’ free “Sailing At The Bay” programme as a weekend activity.
At the same time, readers can browse through a plethora of lifestyle-related stories offering lifehacks, healthy food recipes and even parenting and career advice, or delve deeper into broader themes such as social inclusion and food security on the ‘Live more, Bank less’ portal. They can also read about the journeys of innovative and inspiring social enterprises, many of whom are supported by DBS Foundation.
Said Karen Ngui, Head of Group Strategic Marketing and Communications, DBS Bank: “Singapore is one of the most highly connected countries in the world and the quality of the mobile experience, as well as the use of smartphones to stream video content and podcasts, is on the rise. With social distancing now still paramount to our health and safety, stories that engage are ones that connect all of us as we find comfort in everyday routines. Like we did with our DBS Sparks series, we will continue to push the envelope when producing and curating meaningful content for our customers which they can conveniently access, anytime and anywhere.”
