Google’s Ken Lingan on Internet in the PH: ‘We’re going to see a massive shift’
MANILA, Philippines – There are over 44 million Filipinos who have access to the Internet. By 2016, that number is expected to grow by 50%.
Given the Internet’s fast rise, businesses should be primed to tap its power. A strong Internet presence can truly make your venture grow – not just in terms of profit, but in terms of meaning and sustainability as well.
How to navigate this and think of new approaches? These will be discussed at Rappler's #ThinkPH, which will be held on April 30 at 12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub, Century City Mall, Makati.
This year's #ThinkPH focus is Platform thinking. (Read more about it here.)
Among our speakers will be Ken Lingan, Google’s Country Manager for the Philippines. He is joining a roster of guests who are experts in digital and mobile business strategies here and around the world.
“Half of our country's population will be connected to the web as smartphones and data packages become more accessible,” Lingan previously said. “The question is whether companies and businesses are prepared for this massive consumer shift.”
