Meet Chris...

Chris is a dividing figure in the Asia Pacific marketing industry. Love him or hate him, it's difficult not to have a sneaking admiration for his brash and buccaneering approach that has made him a high impact character in the regional industry.

What nobody can deny is the rollercoaster ride that got him there. His journey takes him from household names in media through start-up companies operating in the Wild West of the digital frontier to the warm sun of the South East Asian equator.

In his own words, he explains...

"My Grandad told me when I was 9 years old that "it's who you know, not what you know" and LinkedIn demonstrates that this is so true.

"Moving to Singapore in 2009 was the best thing that I ever did and made me a better entrepreneur and a more worldly person.
