He’s worked for The Standard in Hong Kong, think tanks, lobbying groups and startups in the U.S., been a social media consultant, and now supports startups in 125 countries in his role for Microsoft.
Come and hear Crets share his experiences and get his take on digital career opportunities and entrepreneurship for today’s journalists.
