New tnhinking

Martin Roll is the author of the international bestseller Asian Brand Strategy, a very compelling book of frameworks for creating successful Asian brand leadership and the winning formula for any boardroom. It has been named “Best Business Books 2006” by Strategy+Business magazine from global management consultancy Booz Allen Hamilton. His next book, due to be published in 2008, looks at value creation through brand equity and how this guides leadership and performance at boardroom level.

Culture-driven insights

Martin Roll represents a culturally diverse profile with his globe trotting career spanning different regions of the world. Currently based in Asia, he travels extensively to all parts of the world (500.000 miles yearly) and speaks at more than 100 global top-level conferences. He represents in-depth knowledge and perspectives of fast-growing Asia and its diverse opportunities and cultures. Many “experts” often fail to engage audiences due to lack of local knowledge and insights, and/or they address audiences in the West claiming to know Asia very well. But few actually have that expertise. Martin Roll effectively bridges this divide and mixes his strengths on boardroom integrity and global leadership experience with cultural-driven insights.
