For the fifth episode of Vulcan TV, we are really fortunate to have visited Groupon’s Asia Pacific Headquarters in Singapore.
Groupon is one of the leading shopping deals site in Singapore, and has always been committed to bringing the best deals for its customers. Customers can visit the website and look around for the best deals in town.
For Vulcan TV, we were very privileged to speak to Adrian Tan, Country Head for Groupon Singapore, Connie Finch (Accounting Manager), and Alma Browne (HR Manager) for the interview segment. A huge thanks to Lester who was the our host for the episode.
Vulcan TV would like to thank Groupon Singapore (thanks Alma!) for their patience and time to have the crew over.
