  • Industry Roundtable on Key Challenges Facing the Media Industry

  • Leadership & Workplace Culture

  • Communication Styles

  • Developing a Negotiation Style

  • Decision Tree

  • SMART Goals

  • Introspective Leadership

  • Mental Health & Well-Being

  • 5 Pillars of Leadership

  • Managing Millennials in the Newsroom

  • Executive Sharing on What I Would Have Done Differently


Digital Media Asia 2021 (24 - 26 August 2021)

As a new normal emerges from the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, publishers have to be prepared to seize the new opportunities which will be shaped by the powerful forces of technology and ever-changing audience habits.

Digital Media Asia closely examines these trends and will help publishers chart the way forward in this dynamic media landscape.


Fellowship Finale (January 2022): Stay connected via a post-Fellowship alumni community  

This all-expenses-paid Fellowship will provide young newsroom leaders many opportunities to engage in dialogue and build deeper connections with each other. Travel permitting, Fellows will gather in Singapore to mark the end of their programme in January 2022 and will continue to build on the ties with their regional counterparts over their social networks.
