Toastmaster Jakarta Conference : Changing the world via communication and leadership

“If you want to change the world, educate people about communication and leadership.

Because most wars in the world, stem from misunderstandings between parties. And only if we want to communicate more, brave enough to take initiative~ we can relate more, understand each other, and bring peace in the world.
-Ibu Maimunah

Speaking for Growth Hacking Asia : How to get your first 10,000 customer with content marketing

Last 26th January 2016, I was given a chance to share about content marketing and how powerful it could be if it’s done right. You don’t even have to pay a dime to attract your first customers, yup that’s right~as long as you could get the words right, it will be gold.

It was a fun sharing session, the participants were fully charged and eager to learn. The event was held by Growth Hacking Asia, an amazing organisation helping Asian start-up grow.

Thought I’d embedded the presentation here as well for safe keeping.
