Get your burning questions on Data answered on 14th November



( – Last week we shared with you who were the key industry experts who will be speaking at this year’s Malaysian Media Conference (MMC).

From Unilever Asia’s, Senior Global Brand Manager to Astro’s Vice President of Data Analytics, the experts in the area of Data, creativity and technology will share the stage to discuss the problems they face and the solutions they come up with when dealing with the BIG issue of Data.

Here are some of the sessions you can look forward too at the first part of our upcoming event:

• Where is Data heading for media agencies and marketers?

Robin Wong- Mindshare & CEO of FAST Asia Pacific, Former Global Head of Operations Data & Analytics, GroupM

We are living in a transition phase, from data and analytics as a specialist service, to data and analytics being a core enabler in adaptive marketing. Mastering how to harness data to drive marketing decisions is no longer optional, especially when data is now at the intersection of media and content, and we need to deliver the right message to the right person with the right content in a nanosecond. As we adapt to the rapid pace of transformation in the Adtech world, let’s not get caught up in all the hype, rather stay focused on the fundamentals of business frameworks.
