Celebrating International Women’s Day 2018: #PressforProgress

CPM Singapore salutes its female employees – International Women’s Day 2018


The Singapore office may be small and situated over 6,700 miles away from the UK Mothership, but it has fully embraced CPM’s intrinsic values of gender inclusivity, diversity, and opportunity. Keen to celebrate International Women’s Day, CPM Singapore decided to film three of their remarkable women, and share their uplifting stories.



Take 68-year-old top saleswoman, Renee, undaunted by having to learn complicated salesforce technology she joined forces with her young colleague Jinho, and through a mutually beneficial mentoring programme, she taught him traditional sales skills and he taught her the intricacies of new digital systems. Now they both regularly smash their sales targets!


Life in an agency is constantly changing and new mother Karen’s can-do attitude was a huge benefit when she changed from a telephone sales role to a field role. Relishing the opportunity to develop an in-depth knowledge of other areas in the business, she’s now formalising her knowledge and attending a CPM sponsored night school class. She is also passionate about CPM’s pro-family friendly policies which gave her flexibility when she really needed it.


Fortune favours the bold! Shelly jumped at the chance to make the brave move to relocate from Switzerland to Singapore. Once here, she threw herself into networking, and creating a vibrant life for herself. Attending Omnicom University and being a founder member of the Singapore chapter of Omniwomen enriched and extended her global reach. She is now returning to Switzerland as Client Service and New Business Director.    


Hear these three remarkable women talk about their inspiring stories by watching the above video.

CPM Singapore is delighted to salute its female employees!
