Abid Hussain's talk will provide a new perspective in understanding how the television medium in Asia has changed in the last 10 years. Television advertising, marketing and promotion have greatly evolved in countries like India, Korea and Indonesia, affecting the region's economy and the consumer ecology of these countries.
Drawing on personal experience, Hussain will also discuss career opportunities in media and how roles which were nonexistent five years ago are becoming sought after in the broadcast and creative industry today.
The lecture will also feature several case studies from India, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia.
