Stay resilient, stay safe, stay connected. That was the message of Mr. Stephen Sim, chairman of Uconnect Worldwide Network (UCN), during the group’s first Digital Alliance Conference on Nov. 10, 2020 attended by more than 100 NVOCC members worldwide.
During the event, Mr. Sim introduced Andrew Smithurst as the network’s International Network Development Director.
With no opportunity to hold the usual annual conference due to the pandemic, the group instead organized an online fellowship to remain connected amid the global economic uncertainty. Key UCN people extended their wish for members to stay safe and healthy.
The UCN team also arranged one-on-one digital meetings for each member to discuss business opportunities in niche industry markets.
Spearheaded by its ambassador Mr. Chris Coching, the UCN Team spiced up the fellowship with exciting activities such as a lucky draw, Q&A, and even an online band entertainment.
Chairman Sim promised to call a face-to-face UCN conference in 2021, assuming a return to normalcy, a promise met by online cheers from members.
