We’ve said it elsewhere in this web site, but it bears repeating: relevant, credible, valuable content is the cornerstone of our success, and informs all the business decisions we make. Our specialist focus on government, education, healthcare and security communities means that we can succeed only through providing information that helps our audience do their jobs better.
In recognition of the quality of the content we produce governments have commissioned us to deliver in house as well as public training courses, produce research reports, provide strategic consultancy and organise study tours and large scale events. This is in addition to our regular business of publishing FutureGov magazine, and organising the region’s largest network of public sector modernisation events.
You can’t fake this kind of audience – either people beat a path to your door, or they go elsewhere. Happily the audience for our content continues to grow as a result of our continued investment in editors, journalists and researchers. At last count we had four research directors, an editorial director, three editors and 18 journalists and researchers – including a former Government Chief Information Officer. That’s a lot of little grey cells, and all focused on public sector transformation.
You can’t fake the awards we’ve won either. We’re two-time winners of awards from the Magazine Publishers Association of Singapore for both print and online, have won four prestigious Asian Publishing Awards, and in 2012 won 'Best CEO-level Conference’ at the Asian Conference Awards. We have a pretty good track record in Pub Quiz Nights as well.
