ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Olivia Choong is mostly known as the founder of Green Drinks Singapore, the local chapter of an internationally-recognised movement with a presence in more than 800 cities. Founded in November 2007, Green Drinks Singapore connects businesses, government, green businesses, NGOs and likeminded individuals for knowledge sharing and collaboration opportunities.

Having spent the last few years getting to know the various environmental issues, Olivia felt that more needed to be done, and decided to tap into her writing, public relations and environmental experiences to start Green PR.

Olivia studied Mass Communication at Murdoch University, majoring in journalism and public relations, and completed a post-graduate diploma in public relations at Curtin University during her stay in Western Australia. This was the start of her love for Communications, which was further developed when she joined Hill & Knowlton (Singapore), and taught the subject to Republic Polytechnic students for before starting her own consultancy.
