In 2015, the World Economic Forum estimated that successful digitalisation initiatives would yield US$100 trillion in value to business and society. After five years, this has materialised and many of the fastest growing companies in Asia Pacific have embedded digitalisation and technology in their DNA. The 2019/2020 pandemic has also provided a stronger motivation to accelerate the adoption of digital disruption as a strategic means to future proofing businesses and industries.

Audrey is a former senior business leader at Dentsu International and helmed its Asia Pacific media and performance business and its Global R&D centre. She has been a marketing, business, and advertising professional for over 25 years and has worked across industries and geographies.
As an avid practitioner of this mantra to transform regularly, Audrey has guided organisations in go-to-market strategies as well as transforming companies and teams as a manager herself. In 2011, Audrey, as Chief Executive Officer of Aegis Media Singapore, transformed the sleepy marketing services company from a project based, tactical and siloed company to one that was recognised as an integrated marketing and strategic partner for customers, and pioneered new commercial models. This foundation led to the Singapore office being identified to spearhead the global ambitions in machine learning and AI with the establishment of the group’s first global R&D centre in 2016, led by Audrey.
Audrey is currently on the boards of Singapore Tourism Board and the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore International.
