Upgrade Your Skills, Not Just Your Wardrobe

SkillsFuture urges Singaporeans to engage in lifelong learning with campaign from Ogilvy & Mather

Upgrade Your Skills, Not Just Your Wardrobe
To bolster the Singaporeans’ skillsets, SkillsFuture Singapore has launched a campaign to drive greater awareness and understanding of SkillsFuture initiatives. Ogilvy & Mather Singapore was the creative agency for the campaign and the TVCs were launched this week on broadcasters Mediacorp Channel 5 and Channel 8. 

The campaign’s concept, which underlines the fact that ‘The Most Important Upgrade Should Be You’, adopts a simple metaphor that conveys a powerful message. It emphasises that upgrading your professional skills is of equal, if not greater importance, than upgrading your everyday necessities. Resembling retail and lifestyle advertisements, the team took the unconventional approach of capturing the audience's attention by appealing to their ‘consumer’ instincts via an engaging fashion retail-style look and feel. 

Brenda Han, Managing Partner, Ogilvy & Mather Singapore, said, “To motivate people to embark on their journey of lifelong learning, we drew a simple parallel to the items in their life that they upgrade frequently, rather than themselves. We want to influence those who have not taken steps to upgrade their professional skills and emphasize that the only way to stay relevant in today’s competitive and ever-changing job market is to keep learning and growing your skills.” 


Patricia Woo, Director, Corporate and Marketing Communications, SkillsFuture Singapore, said, “Investing in yourself is an important and lifelong process. We hope this campaign will prompt people to re-view their learning and career goals and realise that they need to upskill and reskill to stay relevant and achieve their potential. There is a wide range of SkillsFuture programmes available for individuals regardless of the stage of their careers that will enable them to deepen their skills and grow themselves.” 
As part of the launch, a series of ads and TVCs will run across various channels including a dedicated campaign landing page and social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Youtube.
