Keynote |Building Asia’s Largest Global Sports Media Property by Jack Lim

Jack Lim is the Chief Commercial Officer of ONE Championship. He is responsible for uniting and leading all of ONE Championship’s revenue streams as well as forging strategic partnerships and shaping the commercial ecosystem for Asia’s largest global sports media property.

He will share how ONE Championship is on its way to becoming the first billion dollar global sports media property in Asia, on par with organisations such as the NFL, NBA, EPL, and F1, among others. ONE is a celebration of Asia's greatest cultural treasure - martial arts, and its inspiring superheroes that represent great Asian nations. It is built on deep-rooted Asian core values of integrity, humility, honour, respect, courage, discipline, and compassion. It is no secret that Asia is home to the best martial artists on the planet and ONE’s mission is to unleash these real-life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, dreams, inspiration and strength.

With that formula, ONE Championship has become the largest global sports media property in history, achieved some of the highest TV ratings and social media engagement metrics in Asia with its unique brand of Asian values, and world-class production with a global broadcast reach to 1.7 billion potential viewers across 136 countries.

4 pm – 5 pm Keynote | Embracing Challenges with the Attitudes of Adventure by Rob Lilwall

Nat Geo Adventurer, Rob Lilwall, will share gripping stories from his expeditions across the world by bicycle and on foot, through extreme places such as Siberia, Papua New Guinea and China's Desert of Death.

Rob admits he is not a particularly strong or brave person, but by practising the attitudes of adventure, he has been able to persevere, overcome his fears, develop resilience, learn new skills, and collaborate effectively to achieve his goals (and even have some fun amidst the hardship).

Relating this to business, Rob notes that on the inside, most people's life experiences are rather similar to being on an expedition - full of good times, tough times, scary times, stressful times and times of opportunity.

What allows us to succeed in the long run is not just our IQ or our qualifications, but a good attitude - something we all get to choose for ourselves. This invigorating session will entertain, engage and equip you to live more adventurously, and more whole heartedly.

5.00 pm End
