The Pitch Confident Podcast Ep 008 – Kian Fong

Soon Min Podcast 17 Comments

This is a special interview for me because I’ve known Fong since our days in college. He’s survived one of the most competitive markets in the world to build a successful digital agency in Shanghai. Starting out in 2008 as FlipScript, within a short span of 5 years, he built the company from a 3 man team towards 43 and was acquired by UK’s largest independent advertising companies called Engine Group.

On a regular day, business competition is a serious issue, but Fong successfully carved a space for himself in a foreign land. You’ll get insights into some of the perspectives and practices he used to gain trust and win clients.

Through his story you’ll learn

  • What it really means when people say ‘build personal relationships’ with clients.
  • The philosophy of risk, and how thinking in that way helps you win clients.
  • How he addresses the issue of getting the right talent from a small agency, till now.
