The Inside of A Pitch, APAC

R3’s Co-founder and Principal, Shufen Goh, joined Jessica Davey of McCann Worldgroup and Joanna Jones from VICE on a panel discussing the inner workings of the pitch process. The session titled “The Inside of a Pitch” was part of The Drum’s Agency Acceleration Day APAC on 16 October at Facebook’s Asia Pacific headquarters.
