Minter Dialogue with Emily Chang

Emily Chang is CEO, McCann Worldgroup-China. Prior to joining McCann, Emily has been the CMO for Starbucks China, CCO for InterContinental Hotels Group, Greater China, headed Retail Marketing for Apple across APAC and spent the first eleven years of her career at Procter & Gamble. She’s also author of “The Spare Room: Define Your Social Legacy to Live a More Intentional Life and Lead with Authentic Purpose.” In this conversation, we discuss how she came up with her social legacy, including how she shared it within her household. We talk about her book, how to combine your offer and offence, how to effectively and authentically bring your personal life into the professional sphere, the place for empathy as a leader and much more.
