And, so what is a Blog?
The name blog is short for a Web log ~ did you know that? I didn’t!Subscribe to our blog! Why miss out? There’s a lot more we have to say!
The reason I Googled the meaning of the word “blog” is that Red Singapore has finally embraced blogging as part of our social marketing strategy and to be honest I didn’t know where the word “blog” came from. Not too smart to start blogging when one doesn't even know what a blog is? So now I know.
My marketing experience goes back to the early 1990’s where we still used Letraset (Dry Transfer Lettering) for graphic design and the Apple computer was dismissed by the Creative Directors of the time.
Communication with customers or clients was via fax, printed newsletters, newspaper, magazine, TV or radio. Oh and the telephone – landlines – no mobile phones yet.
Whether you’re an avid user of social media for corporate marketing or not quite with it yet, there is no denying the many ways that social media and networking have massively impacted our personal and business lives over the last 10 years. Although I come from the old school of marketing I had to face up and accepted that Red Singapore needed to embrace a modern social media marketing strategy. www.blog.redtheconsultancy.com/blog
So leaving this corporate blah blah behind I invite you to register for our blogs and share your views in a personal and less formal way (unlike this newsletter). It’s about people!
We’re not expert bloggers yet; however, by sharing industry updates, expert tips or best practices we believe we’ll get there and would love for you to be part of it!
Red Singapore – reinventing recruitment solutions!
Tracey Shearer - Managing Director

We have worked closely with Red on the recruitment of specialist positions within the chemical tanker industry. Red has proved to be a valuable partner in recruitment of specialists, as they have specific knowledge and understanding of the shipping industry.
When partnering with Red, I have particularly valued their dedication and commitment to finding the right candidate for the job, but also their direct, open and honest style of communication.
Red was engaged by my company to help source critical staff required for a new office startup in Singapore. This task was unique in that skilled shipping and logistics professionals had to be shortlisted, interviewed and contracted with complete privacy of the company’s entry into Singapore.
I am very happy with the team hand-picked from the market and headhunted by Red and look forward to assigning them our next human resource assignment.
Farstad Shipping have been utilising the services of Red Consulting for a number of years now, for recruiting various role in our Singapore office. We have developed a very good relationship with both Tracey Shearer and Henry Ferreira in their Singapore office and they have always provided great support and guidance throughout the recruitment process. Red keep us up to date throughout the recruitment period and also ensure candidates are kept engaged throughout the process as well. For those more challenging roles Red have aso been persistent in endeavouring to source the best candidates available.
Working with Red was an absolute pleasure. From start to finish they were helpful, supportive and able to quickly source quality candidates. We were on a tight timescale and needed capable staff quickly - even over a holiday period in Singapore, Red were able to assist us and we were able to hire excellent candidates through them.
Red did an amazing job finding the most suitable candidates. Furthermore, they did even more amazing job in 'filtering' the candidates and provide a very detailed and accurate analysis.
I strongly recommend Red and there is no doubt that we will work again soon.
