Speaker Highlights


The D/M Summit isn’t just your regular run-of-the-mill, all talk kind of summit. Over 25 speakers are specially selected for their expertise on a subject and tasked to provide us with actionable insights, their expert knowledge, present us with case studies and give a 360 degree perspective in their field of work.


Expect to hear from the best minds in the industry, like:


  • Dr Lau Cher Han – Chief Data Scientist, Founder of LEAD.

You can expect more at the summit because they’re still adding topics and speakers to the list. You’ll get to directly chat with them, grill them for answers, and dig their brains for solutions to any issues you’re currently facing with your business.


Here’s a little something the speakers have to say regarding their industries:


Zi Yuan, Co-founder of Tide Analytics

Analytics is an amazing tool for bigger companies to understand their business better, gain more insights as to how their current customer pool is responding to their products and services, then strategize for growth in user acquisition and retention. – Zi Yuan, Tide Analytics


Johnathan Oh, CEO of SupplyCart

Definitely having data, Machine Learning and AI integrated into businesses is going to be the future. Any business that is not looking into automating or changing these processes is going to have a tough hill to climb in the future. – Johnathan Oh, SupplyCart


Wayne Liew, Head of Advertising, Mindvalley

Many people who are getting started with posting content online forget this very important thing. It’s your audience. Do you even have it? Unless you only want to reach your coworkers, friends and family members, chances are, you need to actively find ways to expand your audience. – Wayne Liew, Mindvalley


Warren Leow, VP of Inmagine Group

My conclusion is responsible businesses need to leverage technology to complement and generate more gainful employment, and not curtail it for the masses. – Warren Leow, Inmagine Group


Another thing that’s interesting about the D/M Summit is that it’s 100% online, so you won’t need to take time off from work, get stuck in traffic and fight others for parking to attend the talks.


2 Tracks 2 Cover Them All


The organizers of the D/M Summit split their topics into two tracks:


  1. The data science track
  2. The marketing track

Ticketing & Pricing


DM Summit Ticketing


D/M Summit’s lifetime pass won’t just give you lifetime access to all the videos – you’ll also get to download all the handouts, PDFs, slides, and anything the speakers deem fit to upload for the crowd.


To sweeten the deal, D/M summit will also furnish you with plenty of offers, discounts, freebies, and partner perks from the participating vendors during the event, not to mention endless networking opportunities.


For more information regarding this online event, check out D/M Summit’s FAQ page. Honestly, if I were you, I’d pick up the early bird ticket at only USD31.50 right now before the promo ends on 20th Sept and we’ll have to fork out USD48.60 for the lifetime pass.


Why we think You should attend


One thing I have to add – during Summits like these when there are 2 or more tracks, I find myself often torn. What if there are 2 speakers I wanted to watch, speaking simultaneously on different tracks?


Since D/M Summit is an online event, you’ll find that this issue is a…non-issue. Everything is recorded so you can access the videos at any point of time that’s convenient to you (provided you purchase the lifetime pass at only USD48.60 USD31.50 with the early bird special).


Plus, with 25 topics and a pretty impressive list of experienced speakers, USD 31.50 is a steal. The sort of insight you’ll get when you’re able to speak directly to the speakers is quite frankly, invaluable.


This event isn’t the first of its kind but for the price we’re paying, it’s pretty damn good value for money especially if it helps us grow our business.


See you guys online at the event, and don’t be shy, drop us a DM if you bump into us :)
