#content360sg

I enjoyed a great couple of days attending Content360 in Singapore last week, with ACMA as the Association Partner for the event. The 180-strong audience enjoyed case-study rich presentations from some of the world’s greatest brands, and I definitely agree with the general sentiment that Singapore (and Asia) has moved beyond the why of content…

Where are all the Social CEOs? Not in the Fortune 500

Social CEO

Every year I look forward to receiving the CEO.com #socialceo report, because it gives me statistical fodder to back up my personal branding argument.

Did Amanda Palmer Write the Business Book of 2015?

Amanda Palmer

I think she did and I’m going to explain why. While most business books don’t start off with an exchange between women in a public toilet, I believe that if you only read this book through the eyes of the entertainment industry, you’ll miss some incredibly powerful learnings. Particularly her obsessive focus on her fans…

Simon Cholmeley and I were thrilled to be invited to speak at the Microsoft Platinum Partner Summit 2015 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, last week. A wonderful opportunity to share our learnings on the content marketing landscape in Asia with Microsoft’s partners, we also took the opportunity to link the message to something absolutely…

Content Marketing and Emotional Intelligence, a Perfect Match?

Emotional Intelligence

Two years ago, when looking to move back into corporate life after several years as an entrepreneur, one thing was very clear – my passion for content marketing was not an opportunity in Asia Pacific. It wasn’t on any business radars then and when I spoke about it, it was either unknown or perceived as…

#Worklikeanetwork

I’ve been spending a bit of time with my Yammer colleagues recently, and there are two philosophies I really love about this team of inspired people. The first is “let’s change the world together” – yes please, I love that and I’m in. The second is encouraging all people to #worklikeanetwork. I absolutely couldn’t agree…
