The technological revolution and the profound changes brought by expanded connectivity will only become relevant when we ‘see’ the actual human face behind the device, according to Tencent Online Media Group (OMG) president S.Y. Lau.
Tencent’s SY Lau is the Cannes Lions 2015 Media Person of the Year, the first executive from a China-based company to receive the award – but he is also a Malaysian. Here, he speaks about his childhood, his plans for Tencent, and his hopes for Malaysia.
The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity last month announced that the Cannes Lions 2015 Media Person of the Year Award will go to SY Lau, senior executive vice president of Tencent and president of its Online Media Group (OMG).
