Asia's economics, despite ups and down, remain the most vibrant and fastest growing in the World. Yet, as David Ketchum explains, the number of global brand names made in Asia is disproportionately low. This is now changing as the forces of globalization and bottom-up restructuring within the region are coming together. For anyone involved in running an Asian-based business these are both exciting and daunting times that call for a fresh look at the marketing challenge. David Ketchum draws on a wealth of personal experience to help us out. Big M little m Marketing is a remarkable fusion of marketing theory and practice, big picture and detail, explanation and seasoned advice that is helpful and fun to read - Geoffrey Barker, Chief Economist, HSBC Asia-Pacific
