As the world emerges from the shadows of a pandemic, we're all wondering what's next? Has our experience in lockdown altered the future we expected or has it simply accelerated ongoing change?
What's in store for us over the next few years? Join Singapore-based hosts Suzy Goulding and Andrew Clark as they ask leaders across Asia working in media, marketing, communications and lifestyle one simple question: What's next?
On this edition of the podcast we chat to Paul Harris, Asia Pacific Director for Rolls-Royce Motorcars about his passion for automobiles from a young age, the importance of personalisation for luxury brands and the possibility of a fully electric Rolls Royce in the not too distant future. Unfortunately he wouldn’t spill all the beans on some of the interesting and often bizarre customisation requests the company gets from its well-heeled clientele - much to mine and Andrew’s disappointment!

Enjoyable and interesting even to an oldie-mouldie! Playing without spectators might remind professionals to play sport rather than playing to the gallery!
Mr James Beale
It’s a Podcast that intrigues me hugely. Having listened to the first , then to hear the passion brought from the guest speaker im hooked!! Sports is pretty much all I’ve ever known. Having jumped off far to many ridiculous hills on my mountain bike and broken myself in competition hill runs I fully understand the passion of an ex pro athlete. Can’t wait for the next episode 👌👍👍👍
Fun 15 minutes of quality banter
Great job, Suzy and Andrew. I’m enjoying listening to your varied and fun guests!
