Khai Yong, Head of Growth at Next Academy

Khai Yong is an ex-pharmacist turned digital marketer who now uses his passion in digital marketing and startups to help others succeed in their digital careers.

Khai will be sharing his wisdom on the 5 Ways To Turn Your Leads Into Buying Customers. He believes that getting a lead through advertising and hoping your automated email marketing funnel will do its thing, is no longer effective. You have to be very proactive in nurturing your leads to turn them into customers, especially if you sell high priced products or are in the B2B space. With that, Khai will be sharing 5 proven techniques which have worked for Next Academy in achieving that.

Chen Chow, Co-Founder at Fave Group (formerly known as KFit)

Chen Chow is the co-founder of Fave Group (formerly known as KFit). Fave is one of the fastest growing local commerce in Southeast Asia, bringing upon amazing offers and savings on restaurants, beauty, spa, services, hotels etc for Fave users. Recently, Fave Group acquired Groupon Malaysia and Groupon Indonesia.

Chen Chow will be speaking on the Growth Hacking Journey of Fave sharing some of their lessons learned along the journey. What works, what doesn't work and more.

Wai Hong Fong, Co-Founder/Chieftain at StoreHub

Wai Hong is the co-founder/Chieftain at StoreHub, a cloud-based store management system for retailers. He describes himself as an Accidental Entrepreneur, a Geek@Heart and a foodie who's impatient for action and fascinated with ideas. Wai Hong was named Australia's Best Young Entrepreneur in 2011 by StartupSmart and amongst Melbourne's top 100 most influential people by The Age Newspaper that same year.

He will be speaking to us about the 20 Tools to Hack and Grow a SaaS Business. When working to grow a startup, Wai Hong believes we need as much leverage as we can. Using the right tools and processes are like force multipliers/levers that allow us to do a lot more with less. As someone who is optimizing everything both personally and work-wise (his team can testify), he will be sharing what StoreHub uses as a company to hack and grow their business.
