22 May 2013, I had another opportunity to bring our Curtin Advertising final year students to Dentsu for an outfield trip to meet Fred Eng (Business Group Head & Director of Business Operations). Fred, my ex-colleague and senior back in my Saatchi days. Anyone who had worked with Fred before would definitely miss working with […]
