There was no shortage of opportunities for the students to flaunt their talents on stage on SMU Patron’s Day 2020. Even celebrities who are alumni of SMU, such as the popular local TV host Pornsak, made an appearance on the day. POPULAR did not miss out on the action too. Popular Singapore’s Lim Lai Sim (General Manager (Urban Write & Roadshow)) and Teo Xue Qi (Wendy) (Manager, Tertiary) led POPULAR’s participation by putting together a string of irresistible deals specially for the SMU community at their Patron’s Day booth, which included special promotions for gadgets that were essential for tertiary education. Staying true to our commitment to support lifelong learning, POPULAR also announced a donation of $5,000 to the SMU Bursaries.
A Cradle for Future Milestones
With the SMU-POPULAR Retail Research Laboratory serving as an important pilot project to finetune a business model that will thrive in the tertiary education institutions, other plans in the pipeline
with both the students and the faculty to define new avenues for driving store traffic. Contributing to retail case studies for academic discussions is also part of the agenda to further enrich classroom discussions with examples of decision making and execution in real life. All these initiatives are an exemplar of the synergistic interactions between POPULAR, the retail leader and the knowledge powerhouse, and SMU to form the foundation of an innovative ecosystem. Developing this ecosystem will enable POPULAR to keep up with new technologies and evolving consumer needs, ensuring its continued success in providing our customers with the best service into the future.
Looking ahead, POPULAR is committed to our efforts to further contribute to the development of future generations of leaders and talents. To arm these prospects with relevant skills, POPULAR strives to stay updated in the fast-paced and versatile retail scene. Future efforts will hence be driven by two main qualities: the value POPULAR places in its people, staff and customer alike; and the desire to better ourselves and continue to grow with the people for generations to come.
