“Over the past few decades, branding has taken quite a turn. It is no longer about having an iconic mark or a clever award-winning advertising campaign that puts you in the international arena. Nor is it about merely just connecting with the consumer anymore. With the advent of social media, products not only need to be authentic, but they also need to make a stand or a bold move that will impact and unite an already fragmented market.” exclaimed Datuk Eric Chong, President of Branding Association of Malaysia.
