Singapore, May 2023 – Award-winning media tech company TSL Media Group has expanded their office space, and the setup includes multifunctional event, workshop and creator spaces in conjunction with the launch of their training arm, TSL Academy. This local expansion, on the ground floor of Chutex Building, brings the total area of their Singapore office to some 20,000 square feet.

The official opening ceremony took place on 25 April, and Guest-of-Honour Minister Desmond Lee participated in its ribbon-cutting ceremony, added a finishing touch to a commissioned mural by local urban artist Antz, and had a closed-door industry conversation with the senior leadership team of TSL Media Group.
TSL Media Group’s new office is intended as a media production site that doubles up as a warm, inviting area where they can receive clients, host events and creators and run workshops. With a team of mainly millennials and Gen Zs, the office extension has been designed with their needs and feedback in mind, so it pays special attention to encouraging an open, collaborative culture.
These features include:
- “City Hall” – An amply sized amphitheatre which seats 50-60 pax
- “Kopitiam” – A multifunctional pantry space that alongside City Hall can be used for coworking, fitness sessions, creators, networking events and panel discussions.
- Phone booths
- Quiet room – To be used for prayers, decompression, or as a mother’s room.
- Two meeting rooms (“Steady” and “Pom Pipi”) can be combined into a large boardroom. These rooms can also be configured into theater-style seating for 50 people for screenings and production premieres.
- “Lepak” – A recreation room with game consoles and board games that staff can use for cohesions or just to hang out. There is a full-length mirror wall in this room for dance rehearsals
“The dynamics of offices have changed massively in the past few years, with WFH and WFA (work from anywhere) becoming a permanent fixture in our policies. The new space will be able to accommodate our growing team – where staff can work easily beyond their desks with plenty of communal and casual spaces to interact with one another. We also wanted a fully ergonomic setup so we invested in outfitting our new office with ergonomic desks from Omnidesk and chairs from Secretlab.” says Bryan Choo, CEO of TSL Media Group.
This opening also marks the launch of TSL Academy, in which the Group will establish thought leadership, educate key clients and train future generations of media practitioners through training sessions, workshops and structured mentorships. This is a formalization of many sessions TSL Media Group has already conducted for IMDA, Havas Group, Starhub, Sony and a plethora of educational institutions. At this pilot stage, the Academy will focus on the needs of students and corporates, and its offerings will take the form of half to multiple-day workshops on topics such as “Gaming the Zillennial Audience – How to Sell Without Selling”, “Video and Content Creation in 2023” as well as “Digital Creative Writing 101”. These interactive, hands-on sessions can be conducted within the TSL office or off-site.
“As one of the first movers in the new media industry, we have plenty of best practices to share,” says Jonathan Seto, TSL Media Group’s Chief Growth Officer. “Whether it is transferring our know-hows to the next generation of content creators and strategists, or educating corporates on the best ways to collaborate with this burgeoning pool of influencers, we hope TSL Academy will become an invaluable resource for everyone.”
TSL Media Group recently opened an office in Kuala Lumpur with its acquisition of Malaysian tech software company StackIdeas. As of now, the Group has regional offices in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, and a total workforce of about 200.
