Mental health awareness- managing your career whilst living with a hidden illness ‘But you look fine?’  ‘But You’re always so happy. How could you possibly have a chronic illness ?’ ‘I knew someone who had something similar. She cut out carbs and now she is cured!’  ‘Have you tried yoga? Maybe that would help’ 
While many companies in the Asia-Pacific region have pledged their environmental activism over the past few years, the proportion committed to net-zero targets stands at a mere 8%, according to a recent report by South Pole and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), an international non-profit organisation that runs the world's environmental disclosure system for companies. 
After more than two years into the coronavirus pandemic, Japan is making a big push to return to normalcy by allowing tourist groups into the country, the world’s top tourist destination. Behind closed borders, Japan’s corporate travel scene has also morphed over the past two years.

How to manage an immense fear of flying. I know, this is the hardest piece of advice to follow as after all a fear of flying isn’t necessarily a rational thought process.

Over the past two years, the coronavirus upended commercial aviation. Singapore Airlines (SIA) was not spared.

Beginning with the revolution in mobile technology taking root way back from pre-pandemic days to now, FCM has always recognised that the era of personalised travel would one day dominate.

All travel took a big hit during the pandemic. On a corporate level, virtual sessions quickly and seamlessly replaced on-site visits and face-to-face client meetings.

At FCM’s Th!nk Singapore in April 2022, two months into the lifting of border restrictions for most Asian markets, FCM’s Managing Director for Asia Bertrand Saillet shared his outlook on the state of regional travel. He sees an industry conscientiously striving to make up for lost time, through pivots and adaptations.
