Mei Sze is also a PHD holder in developmental psychology and is working to assist youth development through the media by hosting shows related to youth, and sending strong and encouraging messages through her columns.

Mei Sze highlights, “The increasing integration of influencers as part of a brand’s marketing strategy has become widespread. Many brands know that influencer marketing is a part of social media but is uncertain on the ways to utilize influencers. Influencers, unlike celebrities, can be anywhere. They can be anyone. What make them influential are their large followings on the web and social media. An influencer can be a popular fashion photographer on Instagram, or a well-read cybersecurity blogger who tweets, or a respected marketing executive on LinkedIn. Within any industry, there are influential people.” Mei Sze’s keynote will highlight key points on the what, how, and when it is the right time for influencer marketing. In addition, many are hesitant to use influencers as they have heard it does not work, and this presentation will address that question as well.

Sheng Wen highlights, “Statistics has revealed the positive correlation between the response time and lead conversion in social media marketing. Yet companies face obstacles to decrease response time due to separate systems used to manage customer contacts, different teams handling sales calls, inefficient employees, and lack of efficient monitoring system. The challenge is even more commonly encountered in service industry and offline business. Another hurdle is getting accurate conversion feedback from sales person for social marketer to react in real time to adjust their marketing strategies.” Sheng Wen’s keynote shares tactical insights on how to implement a seamless social marketing process flow and real-time conversion monitoring.
