The program held in Singapore is an opportunity to develop leadership and management skills in areas such as Customer Management (Sales), Supply Chain Management and Marketing.

The challenge this year was to generate ideas for a digital platform that will enable Lipton to bring about a positive change in the society. This was complimented by a 360 degree campaign that generated content and highlights Lipton’s brand purpose.
