Meet the XSPONdables
From different walks of life, we dig deep into a century's worth of marketing, sales, and event management experience. We know marketing can sometimes fall in the hierarchy of entrepreneurial priorities. XSPON is a simple solution to solve this problem, particularly with the limited resources available to Startups and SMEs. Event Marketing is an extremely cost-efficient means of creating long-lasting and meaningful bonds with customers...the very bonds that later become the best form of ROI.
Co-Founder & CEO
In the world of events, sports and marketing for the past 15 years, I have recently finished a Masters in Organizational Behaviour...isn't amazing how complex we little humans are?! This academic insight, associated with my professional experience, has provided me even more evidence that brands must get closer to their customers, and not just through a screen.
Co-Founder & Chairman
As an accomplished senior executive for the past 20 years, I have recently decided to dedicate my time to supporting and developing high-potential startups in the industries I enjoy working in. My past experiences have taken me deep into the worlds of entertainment and media; from managing international music festivals, to founding TV channels and leading incredibly creative teams. XSPON has the ability to truly transform and facilitate the commercial partnerships between brands and rights owners.
Co-Founder & CTO
I’m a social tech geek with a passion for business and technical innovation. I have 20+ years of experience in operating, programming, architecting, and selling tech to solve business problems from SaaS to Financial Trading systems.
Advisor - Festivals & Event Agencies
Rae is a passionate organiser and creative visionary with over 15 years’ experience within the events and entertainment industry. Award winner for past events organised in Hong Kong, and TEDx speaker on community engagement, she has an in depth understanding of the industry and the needs of our partner brands and rights holders.
Advisor - Esports and Media
As an entrepreneurial leader with demonstrated success in managing business across Europe and Asia in the sports and news media industries, my career has always been driven by a passion for content and stories. This experience has given me the opportunity to shape, negotiate, and win significant deals in the area of new technology and media. In a peak era of oversaturated advertising and attention scarcity, I fully recognise the imperative for brands to deliver personal and experiential stories to their fans in the real world! XSPON’s vision was built on the same belief and I’m thrilled to be helping their team deliver on that mission.
Advisor - Startup Ecosystem
Engineer by training and marketer by heart, I spent the last 13 years in B2B marketing with a focus on digital marketing and innovation, working with corporates and startups. I help technology companies launch new products worldwide and grow using all aspects of digital. Building things from the ground up -that’s what I love. I am also a Community builder at La Frenchtech in Singapore, and an avid music photographer.
