for agencies to present their credentials, past creative work and digital media proposals for
SingTel’s Singapore business. In the second and third phase, the shortlisted agencies had to
present creative and innovative business ideas that demonstrated their capabilities on overall
agency and leadership, strategy, operations and systems integration. The shortlisted group of
