A Great Start with an Awesome Marketing Committee

2011 Reel Asian Marketing Committee

Hello everyone.  HELLO TAI!!! *looks straight into his Blackberry*

This is Henry here – some of you may have seen me lurking around the office and festival events over the last two years working in various capacities.  Well, I just started in my new role as Marketing Coordinator, which is a huge honour as I get to work with the AWESOME Louanne Chan (she’s so awesome, her name rhymes!)

We had our first marketing committee meeting yesterday evening and it was amazing to see some familiar faces like Jon (last year’s festival blogger), Mingu (one of the 2010 pitch finalists) and Philbert (pronounced “Feel-Bairt” – say it like you have a curly mustache – who volunteered at the festival last year) as well as new ones from diverse backgrounds, all of whom I am super excited to work with because they bring to the committee unique skill sets that will make this year’s festival amazing!  Our committee chair from last year, Yoomee Choo, is returning to take on the mantle once again and bring it to new heights while she is joined by Imelda Nurwisah, who is new to the role but has been volunteering in the office for the last few months.  A lot of great ideas were being bounced off each other.  With just a little under four months away, I can’t wait to see what we come up with.  Let the fun times begin!

P.S. For all you Four Square peeps – did you know that you can become the Mayor of The Power of Love?  That would be a great line on the resume, don’t you think?
