Speaking at eTail Asia 2016 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

This year again, I’m invited to speaking at one of the best Southeast Asia Ecommerce conference, eTail Asia 2016 at Marina Bay Sands. This time, I join a panel discussion  on the topic “Getting your mobile strategy right”. What initial steps must you take to ensure success? Another one, I am a moderator on the Country Clinic session called “Thailand: Asia’s booming market” – How can e-commerce companies pave their way into a retail heavy market?

I noted down some of the key ideas of the two sessions below for those who are interested to learn more on those topics.
