COVID-19: George Putong on Marketing & Pivots | S3E3

2020 has been the most challenging year in recent memory, with the COVID19 situation hitting all sectors. Our third season is about COVID19 and its impact on the creative production industry.

This podcast aims to be as neutral as possible, to present information, opinions and commentary in a manner that, we hope, is fair and useful to everyone.  

In the episodes to come, we talk with Production Companies, Freelancers, and Performers in our community, and seek industry-specific advice from Financial Planners, Marketing consultants, networking experts, Professional Coaches and Psychologists.  

And, in what could be the biggest topic as segments of our community are facing enormous uncertainty during this Covid19 emergency, we discuss what it means to be responsible for our own Careers, and know the how and when to Pivot to something new.   

For our third episode, we sat down with George Putong, currently with LinkedIn after over a decade working in the creative production industry.

Singapore Foodie – Ah Seng Durian | S3E2

We hang out with the King – the King of Fruits! The amazing durian, a fruit that has almost defied description by noted writers over the years, has a (subjectively) obscene smell combined with beautiful a custard-like flesh. We visit Ghim Moh market to hang with an innovator in the Durian scene and hear how Ah Seng innovated multiple times in his 3 decades of selling Durians

Thanks to Paul Foster for reading the quotes, and Benjamin “Mr Miyagi” Lee for the opening line about how durians smell!
