Mylene Ong is the Head of Strategy at Colenso BBDO in Auckland, New Zealand. She has worked in New York, Shanghai, and her hometown Singapore. Much of our discussion uses Singapore, a country that is just over 50 years old, as a metaphor for the future of advertising.
We also discuss:
- Adapting yourself to different cultures
- Generalists and specialists in strategy departments
- How working in a small market in an agency that consistently does good work might be the only shortcut there is
