What if we are how we eat?
As Covid-19 moved across borders, various countries faced challenges with food as supply chains were abruptly cut. Even as farms were forced to throw away hundreds of tonnes of produce, many people, especially those in need, were facing food shortages. It was an exaggerated glimpse into what the world was already facing before the pandemic struck. The business of food failing the basic function of food – which is to feed. Our guests today look at inequity and imbalance through the lens of our food system, while calling for change in the future of our society. Because what if we aren’t what we eat, but how we eat? Sunny Verghese is co-founder and group CEO of Olam International, Elaine Heng is CEO of Retail Business of Singapore’s largest grocery retailer – FairPrice Group, and Carolyn Steele is an author, researcher and thought leader on food sustainability and urban systems. They were part of the DBS Asian Insights Conference 2020, on the panel ‘Food for All – Building a Food-secure Future’, with Mikkel Larsen, Chief Sustainability Officer at DBS moderating.

Future of Work | P1: Company culture beyond the big office
Covid-19 forced most office workers to work remotely to curb the spread of the virus. And while some offices are re-opening with people going back to work, albeit with a different set up and schedule, other companies have announced either extended, indefinite or even permanent WFH arrangements. What does this all mean for the big office? Are there intangibles at risk when we no longer routinely share a space with our colleagues? Our host Carolyn Camoens speaks with Ben Hamley, Asia-Pacific Lead for the Future of Work at JLL, and Borko Kovacevic, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Operating Officer, and Lynn Dang, HR Lead at Microsoft Singapore.
