Why is Asia an exciting place to be creatively?

A lot of today’s most progressive work has and continues to come out of Asia. And more than anywhere else in the world, the Asian creative industry has been turbocharged by technology. When you combine that with the region’s unique culture and nuances, magic happens.

Which areas of creativity is the Asia Pacific industry particularly excelling in?

Asian creativity is shining brighter than ever before, with fabulous work coming out of countries across the region. Just look at the work Chinese agencies are creating with Tencent, Baidu and Alibaba. With ‘decentralization’ and consumers playing a mutual role for brand success on platforms like WeChat, the potential to solve brand challenges in China are unlimited.

Which country in Asia Pacific excites you most creatively and why?

It’s a long list. But I guess China, Japan, India and Thailand are showing the way forward. The rules are broken every day, and when rules are broken, we discover beautiful possibilities.

What are you most looking forward to about Spikes Asia?

First of all, coming home. I’m a proud Malaysian kampong boy and had the honor of working in Singapore for three years. I’ve been a fan of Spikes Asia for a long time – the community, the size of the festival and the prestige of a Spikes Award make it an irresistible occasion.

What can we expect from your session, what will you be discussing?

I’ll be sharing my thoughts about the drastic shift that the industry needs to pivot toward a consumer-centered, experience-led approach. It’s something I’m very passionate about. It will be a call to reset ourselves. Or simply put: we either do or die.

Our best days are ahead of us, but only if we disrupt ourselves and how we approach client challenges. The old ways of approaching solutions with 360 campaigns is dead. Today, it’s about how brands can earn a space in people’s hearts through connected, frictionless, relevant and well-crafted experiences across all channels – all through to the final critical mile, commerce
