Asia Definitely Moved Beyond Why of Content Marketing to How

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

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?

I think she did and I’m going to explain why.

Content Marketing and Emotional Intelligence, a Perfect Match?

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 …
