Our Inspiring Stories

retail reimagined innovation challenge 2022
Congratulations to our winners at the Retail Reimagined Innovation Challenge 2022!

Congratulations to the two Diploma in Marketing student teams on their stellar performance at the Singapore Retailers Association Retail Reimagined Innovation Challenge 2022! Team X-3 took home the 2nd place with their mobile app that tackles manpower shortages, while Team DBG landed a position in the Top 10 with their sustainable delivery idea that reduces carbon footprint!

“Our team was able to create mobile app G with the support of Jason, founder of Scent by SIX. G taps on the unique characteristics of the gig economy, and provides users a personalised, valuable, and meaningful experience.

We were happy to have made it to the finals with our idea. It felt even more surreal and unbelievable to be placed 2nd among the other teams from other institutions! Our course has given us ample opportunities to innovate and create without limits, boosting our confidence in this competition,” shared Team X-3.

Lim Yong Guang
From the air to the seas!

TP Aviation Management graduate Lim Yong Guang makes waves as the newly minted Lee Kuan Yew Gold Medal winner at the recent NTU convocation. Yong Guang graduated from TP with a cGPA of 3.94 to join NTU’s Bachelor of Science (Maritime Studies) programme. He continued to apply what he learned in TP.

“With air transportation being one of the major aspects in the logistics and transportation industry, TP AMS showed me how air transportation has played its role in connecting supply chains. I am able to better appreciate how the various modes of transportation (i.e. air, sea, and land) can interact with each other to create more resilient and sustainable supply chains, especially amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Congratulations Yong Guang from all of us at TP! Well done!

CNA Campus
Learning the ropes of digital content management and production

Say hi to six of our Diploma in Communications & Media Management students!

These students had the opportunity to produce and host several audio podcasts for CNA Campus under the series ‘Our Views’, discussing topics such as growing up in an Asian household and post-polytechnic life. With the guidance of their lecturer Ms Felicia Nah, they were able to learn and hone their podcast skills such as structuring a talk show and writing a radio script through this industry project.

For Eunice, being part of this podcast for a local media company was a dream come true, and gave her a glimpse into how a professional podcast is made.

“Taking part in CNA Campus was definitely an insightful learning experience. I took the chance to familiarise myself with the whole process, and learnt different skill sets useful to me as a CMM student. Thank you once again, CNA!” shared another student Iffah.

These podcasts were broadcasted on CNA938, and are available on Mediacorp’s meListen webpage. Catch them today!
