The Launch of TRIBE by TEC
The Launch of TRIBE by TEC
With the surge in the number of Generation Y and Generation Z workers, who are anticipated to make up an estimated 50 percent of the global workforce by 2020, coworking seems to be an inevitable trend. The idea of shared office and communal working is becoming more popular, particularly among the fintech sector, new start-ups, entrepreneurs and creative freelancers seeking community and collaboration with like-minded talent.

“TRIBE stands for a group of people who shares the same customs, beliefs and interests. TRIBE by TEC is designed basically to unite these promising professional forces and provide them with the opportunity to work side-by-side, collaborate and share ideas,” explained Yvonne Lim, Regional Director – Australia, Jakarta & Singapore of The Executive Centre.

TRIBE by TEC creates a community where like-minded leaders converge. Eschewing the austerity and formality of conventional corporate environment, the interior design of TRIBE by TEC emphasises warmth and vibrancy. The decor takes direct hints from the brand’s literal title with numerous tribal elements such as masks, dream catchers and patchwork. The generous use of colours helps to foster inspiration that complements the openness of the space. With the open and communal setting, members are given more opportunities to network and interact with each other.

“We offer much more than just another coworking space. We understand that the office space is only a part of the package, what’s important in the coworking concept is the organised community that can benefit everyone mutually with the opportunities and potential to grow. All who belong to the TRIBE can mingle over a cup of fresh ground coffee at our cosy breakout, and our community experienced managers go to great lengths to cultivate a unique experience and positive coworking environment. That’s exactly what we want to achieve with the TRIBE,” Yvonne further explained the vision of TRIBE by TEC.

TRIBE by TEC offers varying coworking membership plans with a range of amenities to support the needs of individuals and companies at every level. It is perfectly ideal for entrepreneurs, dynamic start-ups, small businesses, innovators and independent professionals.

Yvonne concluded by defining what the TRIBE is all about, “We want a whole new character for TRIBE by TEC. That’s why we base our centre in the dynamic and hip neighbourhood of Circular Road. Our TRIBE are those who embrace synergy and work-life integration. A good vibe is of ultimate importance to the TRIBE.”

Clinical Study Shows AstaReal(R) Astaxanthin Effective in Reducing both Mental and Physical Fatigue

leave a comment »

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — A new study published in the Journal of Clinical Therapeutics & Medicines has demonstrated that AstaReal® astaxanthin was simultaneously effective against both mental and physical fatigue.

AstaReal logo
Dr. Robert Corish, AstaReal’s medical advisor, explained, “This trial evaluated the most common type of fatigue that most of us experience during our daily routines; both mental fatigue and physical fatigue. The results show that AstaReal® astaxanthin suppresses and fights both types of fatigue and improves performance. Fatigue is the most common complaint heard by physicians today; and in my experience, this is the first time that a natural ingredient has been shown to improve this common condition.”

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, individuals were treated with AstaReal® astaxanthin for eight weeks. The study was designed to induce fatigue and stress, similar to that encountered in daily life. For the mental challenge, individuals were subjected to a battery of timed calculations (the Uchida-Kraepelin test) – a test requiring intense concentration. The physical component was performed using a bicycle ergometer. Metrics of fatigue were assessed both before and after the stressor tests.

Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) analysis showed that AstaReal® astaxanthin significantly reduced perceived symptoms of mental and physical fatigue compared to the placebo. These included improvements in clarity of thinking, concentration, motivation, and mood. Irritation and feeling of body heaviness were reduced. In the calculation test, an increase in errors observed in the placebo during the second half of the test was almost eliminated in the astaxanthin group. Supplementation with astaxanthin also significantly reduced salivary cortisol, a biomarker for stress.

Eric Caston, General Manager at AstaReal, stated, “Everyone requires not only physical endurance for their daily lives, but also the mental endurance needed for sustained concentration, decision making, memory, and motivation. Supplements containing AstaReal® astaxanthin could be especially beneficial for teachers, healthcare and financial professionals, and athletes as they must perform under high levels of stress and are often victims of fatigue.”

AstaReal(R) Astaxanthin Effective in Reducing both Mental and Physical Fatigue in Clinical First

Fatigue is the most common complaint heard by physicians today; and in my experience, this is the first time that a natural ingredient has been shown to improve this common condition.”

In a double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled study, thirty-nine healthy subjects who had reported awareness of fatigue were treated with AstaReal® astaxanthin for eight weeks. The study was designed to induce fatigue and stress, similar to that encountered in daily life. For the mental challenge, individuals were subjected to a battery of timed calculations (the Uchida-Kraepelin test) – a test requiring intense concentration. The physical component was performed using a bicycle ergometer. Objective and subjective metrics of fatigue were assessed both before and after the stressor tests.

Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) analysis showed that AstaReal® astaxanthin significantly improved clarity of thinking, concentration, motivation and mood compared to placebo. In the calculation test, an increase in errors observed in the placebo during the second half of the test was almost eliminated in the astaxanthin group. Supplementation with astaxanthin also significantly reduced salivary cortisol, a biomarker for stress.

Vincent Wood, President of AstaReal Singapore, stated, “We all require both physical and mental endurance as part of our daily lives. Supplements containing AstaReal® could be especially beneficial for people who work under high levels of physical and mental stress such as military and hospitality personnel and healthcare and financial professionals.”

Prophet Launches China Brand Relevance Index: Alipay and WeChat Lead the Top Ten

leave a comment »

-Study focuses on brand relevance, which has been shown to unlock business revenue and company growth

SHANGHAI /PRNewswire/ — Global consultancy Prophet today unveiled its first China Brand Relevance IndexTM at a press briefing held at Shanghai New York University (NYU Shanghai), located in Pudong New District.

The China Brand Relevance Index measures brands against four dimensions that have been proven to define brand relevance: customer obsession, ruthless pragmatism, pervasive innovation, and distinctive inspiration. Using these four dimensions, Prophet conducted a survey of nearly 10,000 Chinese consumers about 275+ Chinese and global brands across 24 industries.

Top 10 Most Relevant Brands in China

Prophet found the most relevant brands to Chinese consumers are:

Alipay
WeChat
Visa
Marriott
Uber
Ford
Adidas
Tmall
Volkswagen
Ikea
The thinking behind Prophet’s methodology is based on the theories of Professor David Aaker, Vice Chairman of Prophet and author of Brand Relevance: Making Competitors Irrelevant.

“Today’s brand world is evolving at a faster pace than ever before,” said Jay Milliken, Senior Partner at Prophet. “Consumer preferences change in an instant. User feedback is instantaneous. New competitors enter the fray every day. And there are continually new ways to engage and provide value to customers. In this era of infinite expectation and persistent change, absolutely nothing is more critical for a brand than to be, and to remain, relevant.

“In the China Brand Relevance Index, three Chinese digital platforms dominated the Top Ten brands list: Alipay and Wechat at numbers one and two, respectively, and Tmall at number eight,” said Milliken. “Of the 50 brands in the Index, 18 were Chinese, demonstrating that Chinese consumers find relevance in both global and homegrown brands.”

The complete China Brand Relevance Index report and the Top 50 brands favored by Chinese consumers can be found here: http://www.prophet.com/relevantbrands/.

The Brand Relevance Index’s four dimensions of brand relevance are made up of 16 attributes, which measure important brand characteristics like “meets an important need in my life” or “makes my life easier.” The data shows that customer experience is critical to achieving relevance. All the brands in the top 50 have “delivers a consistent experience” as one of their top five attributes.

At today’s briefing Mr. Milliken announced that Prophet will introduce a new China Brand Relevance Index report once a year going forward.

Key Findings

The results of Prophet’s first China Brand Relevance Index revealed several interesting trends, including:

Alipay and WeChat dominate — not only were Alipay (#1) and WeChat (#2) the top two brands in the Index, but they dominated all the other brands in the survey across nearly every element of the Index
Mix of Chinese and Global brands — the Top 50 Relevant Brands in China include 18 Chinese brands and 32 Global brands. Chinese brands deliver more strongly against the key relevance pillar of Ruthlessly Pragmatic while Global brands deliver more strongly against Distinctively Inspired
Five themes emerged — analysis of the full Brand Relevance Index highlighted five important themes for China:
(Re)Invent – constantly challenge category norms
Localize – tailor offer and experience to local culture and traditions
Simplify – make consumers’ lives easier
Focus – be targeted and precise in building your brand
Elevate – help consumers aspire for more
Some interesting surprises — the results of the China Brand Relevance Index held some interesting surprises such as the presence of Uber in the Top 50 (#5) and the absence of Didi Chuxing, Vivo (#18) leading all smartphone brands (Huawei #23, Apple #27, Samsung #45), and Visa (#3) being higher rated than UnionPay (#13).
