Spotlight on ESOMAR APAC 2013 Conference
Hear from international speakers from ESOMAR APAC 2013

Han Zantingh, Managing Director of BrainJuicer Asia, will outline the growing efforts to change research prejudice on how humans make decisions from ponderous and conscious, to fast and emotional. Han will provide examples that reflect our attraction for fast, easy and emotionally satisfying decisions and that also turn human understanding into business advantage.

Shivkumar Moulee, Director of Millward Brown Asia, will discuss how a spotlight on Asia keeps the optimisation of advertising ROI a hot topic among marketers. With a number of markets in Asia seeing significant evolution and exposure to advertising and brands in recent years, there is a need to ‘refresh’ this work to assess if the clusters still hold in today’s context.

The event will be moderated by:

Nicco de Jesus, MORES Board Director and Group M Director
RJ Esteban, ESOMAR Representative for the Philippines and Managing Director of PSRC.
