  • I was just thinking about you the other day! Slipped under the radar! Good presso but selling Malaysia needs to be seen as a strategic initiative and not a series of tactical activities that are confusing and make it hard for prospects to buy in. Consistency is key as is relationships and value. Go well mate.

  • Nice slides here but I kinda wonder if the statistics on page 6 are valid because if the data are coming from only Facebook and other sites in the US, then I will doubt because Japanese are using MiXi more than Facebook, same goes to those Hong Kong and China where I blif they are using Weibo and etc instead of Facebook. Correct me if I'm wrong. :)
