Meanwhile, RICE also bagged other new clients, including global analytics platform Tableau and event-driven technology firm Solace. Additionally, it has renewed its partnership with the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre, which promotes a giving culture in Singapore through developing and facilitating partnerships with individuals, organisations, and leaders to build a "city of good". The consultancy has been working with the non-profit organisation since 2018.

RICE managing partner James Brasher said: “We’re busy building a communications consultancy that is focused on being strategic, creative and flexible for our clients while genuinely being people-first with our culture. These new clients are aligned with our values and vision.”

Established in 2009, RICE currently has over 50 staff across its offices in Singapore, Myanmar and Hong Kong. It has extended its expertise areas to include digital strategy and analytics, to support clients’ evolving needs.
