“The outdoor category has been a battle ground for space, cultural contexts, activations, interactions. Beautiful crafting, relevant messaging, well thought of pieces seamlessly demonstrating a brand promise, all lead to this impact. One that builds genuine connections and great conversations on ground and online,” states the “Chairmom” and Chief Creative Officer of Dentsu Jayme Syfu and the only woman in the 20 top creative directors in ASIA as reported by Campaign brief Asia.
“The “Theater of the Mind”- a jargon used for radio in the past, celebrated sound to produce vivid imagery in people’s minds. This has definitely evolved to a mind blowing experience. I am prepared to close my eyes and listen to beautifully written emotional, funny, witty and intelligent stories. For Spikes Asia, I am prepared to immerse myself in this world of sound that is created with unimaginable combination of technology and sound design, giving justice to the “sounds of Asia” and beyond.”
Jayme is a sought-after international speaker and an opinion leader, she is CEO of MamaLab- a network of moms from Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia and Japan, to create great ideas that truly understand moms.
