IMRAN: Welcome back to the Future of Retail Asia, my name is Imran.

JUN: And I’m Jun. Today, we have Madalene See, an omni-channel marketing specialist with over 18 years of experience working with renowned brands in APAC, Europe and even in the Middle East. Welcome Madalene.

MADALENE: Thank you very much for getting me onboard. I’m glad to have this time with you guys.

IMRAN: Thanks Madalene. Some of the brands she worked with include adidas, HP, Nokia, Bose on the APAC level playing an active or lead role in Go-To-Market, sales and marketing initiatives, even designing in-store digital experiences and organising the visual merchandising.
