Experts predict Asia's travel market will grow 56% to $670 billion by 2024. CEO Tony Fernandes has already set out a Digital Transformation strategy that will evolve AirAsia from being an airline to a digital travel company. It's a bold challenge, but one with the right leadership and vision in place. In my playbook for change, "The Digital Transformation Story" I share case studies of brands who are facing the digital transformation challenge, a challenge that is ultimately about people not digital.
In this disruptive shift from Industrial to Digital, Pipeline to Platform, companies will need to adapt from the Big Idea to Big Data. Communication will shift from the external buying of attention to internal storytelling to create innovative tribes of purpose within their ecosystems.
Steven Liew is accomplished on many levels and yet humble in his desire to continue learning and improving. This helps make him perfect a fabulous partner for his co-Founder and wife Devin Tan. Together, via an entity they have dubbed ‘Cosmic Cafe’, they mentor and invest in startups. They help entrepreneurs turn their ideas and visions into successful companies. Steven and I talked about Angel Investing and how all of his combined experience and business exposure has allowed him to excel in this space as well. Steven is thoughtful, considered and yet very comfortable with the early stage risk that he takes. When you listen to him speak, you can understand how much he has thought about his own ideas, but also how open he is to learning more and getting better. Listen as Steven and I talk about how he became an Angel, why he loves doing it and how the power of a strong network of Angels benefits his investing and that of others as well.
