Festival of media Asia 2014 (Singapore)
The Festival of media, in recent years, has been among my favorite media related conferences/gatherings.
It does help to understand what is currently happening in the media/advertising sector, but more importantly, where is it all heading. You get to meet people of course, and that is always exciting. I am not too much of an extrovert, but do like meeting people and sharing stuff.
So I have been visiting this festival since the past 2 years (and have been blogging about experiences)- and this year was no …

I haven’t attended many events lately.
But when friends @Rice Communications invited me to a community gathering around the launch of a book titled “Talented South East Asia”- on talent management in SEA, I had to give in. A little time spent in the company of industry achievers and think-tank never goes unrewarded.
While Asia as a whole is well celebrated in terms of high quality talent, specific pockets within Asia are quite happening, if you look with the right lens. This publication seems to provide that lens with a focus on an …

What awesome two days.
Happy (and thankful to Rice Communications and FOMA) to be a part of an event like Festival of Media, Asia. Stylish, full of great speaking sessions and good speakers- not just on the quality of speaking but the quality of content they had to talk about.
Apart from that, great questioning by presenters.
Two days- locked in the southern corner of Singapore- hijacking the W Sentosa hotels (they loved it, by the way- judging by their tweets in response to mine ) .
Full of action too: We made the …

Attending The Festival of Media Asia 2013 in Singapore.
The Festival of Media Asia 2013 takes place from 3-5 March 2013.
I personally am quite stoked about the two days: 4th and 5th March. There seems to be a solid line-up of speakers and sessions.
Check out the speaker line up for yourself.
And the Festival agenda here
Earlier, I usually attended these events from a Media Agency (when I used to work with Media agencies) or from a Brand perspective, later (When I was working with Nokia). And now I am attending this having …
Start-up incubators and accelerators are a growing trend all over the world.
The scene seems to be hotting up in India too.
Friends from ‘Price Check India‘ shared this wonderful infographic and a rich post highlighting the top incubators/business accelerators from various parts in India.
A note from them:
…there’s a great thrust to support first time entrepreneurs across India. There are all kinds of efforts in this direction – Govt supported Institute based technology incubators, Private business incubators started by industry veterans and startup accelerators supported by companies and VC funds. Individually there …

So Techventure 2012 started today.
I HAD to be there.
But I did not know anyone who could help me get in. Would have loved to buy tickets, but (A) those were too expensive for me at this stage of my start-up and (B) there was a better way.
Chasing The Storm.
Over the years, this canvas has taken the brunt of my opinions. Plus the influence built through years of publishing works out. Helps me meet super cool people. And get invites to fab events like these.
My key agenda for attending Tech …

A few weeks ago I was conducting some research on e-commerce led businesses.
Though I have worked on various e-commerce business in my 13 year journey with the Digital media and marketing industry- and have been exposed to various kinds of businesses, at the time of my research- I was particularly interested in Payment gateways and logistics industries.
My presumption was that from an Asian context- both these businesses would have matured and now- would be offering many digital enabling offerings- ranging from complex to smaller services. All that had to be …

The demo Asia event.
Attending an event after the longest time- and it had to be this. special thanks to Rice Communications for the invite)

Part 2 of the muse on developing an alternate economic system, I debate for having an alternate currency- “The Karma Currency”. Countries should have “Gross Domestic Karma” as another indicator to their success. And the world then becomes a better place. You may say I’m a dreamer- but I’m not the only one
I classify an underground trend here. There is something unique about today’s generation. They want access to everything. The fact that something is not within reach is just not acceptable to this group…
