The SME Leadership Academy programme is developed by Google in collaboration with UOB to help SMEs in Singapore build strong digital capabilities to accelerate their digital transformation. Over 300 SME leaders have been trained in 2019. The revised 2020 format provides better support to SMEs during this challenging period including redesigning the curriculum from in-person seminars to regular webinar sessions and adopting an industry focus covering insights, tips and recommendations to help you reach your customers online. These have been designed in collaboration with the Economic Development Board (EDB) and with the support of the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and Singapore Retailers Association (SRA).

As Singapore begins the first phase of eased restrictions, many SMEs in the tourism sector continue to navigate challenges caused by the pandemic. During this period, getting the right digital capabilities can help your business adapt, survive and thrive. To help you do this, Google and UOB have customised the SME Leadership Academy for the travel industry to equip you with insights and digital solutions for adapting to the new normal. More than 1,100 SME leaders registered for the first series of retail-focused livestreams, with 8 in 10 recommending the webinar series to colleagues. We look forward to sharing similarly tailored content for your travel business.
