Dear Fellow Digital Discoverers,
100 Web Wednesdays over 10 years! Now that's something worth celebrating! A featured event in the StartMeUpHK (http://www.startmeup.hk/en/startmeuphk-festival-2016/) 2016 Festival.
You're invited to join our 'bumper pack' edition of Hong Kong's premier networking event for internet entrepreneurs and digital media executives, hosted at KPMG's pristine new offices in the Prince's Building, Central, Hong Kong (https://goo.gl/maps/168y5Qwofrs).
We are going to turn the tables for this event and kick off with the founder and host of Web Wednesday, Napoleon Biggs (https://www.linkedin.com/in/napoleonbiggs), being interviewed about the past 10 years of digital innovation in Hong Kong by Anson Bailey (https://hk.linkedin.com/in/anson-bailey-819b4), the witty networking king of KPMG China (http://www.kpmg.com/cn/en/pages/default.aspx) and co-founder of the sports charity, the Potbellied Pigs Rugby Football Club (http://www.potbelliesrfc.com/).
Once we've regaled you with stories of good times past, Napoleon will then interview our four expert speakers on the subject of big data and how it is being put to good (and sometimes, nefarious) use in the fields of business, education, research, marketing and government.
