Fireside Chat with Brian Lo, General Manager at Deliveroo Hong Kong

07 Mar 2018 06:30pm - 08:30pm

Mettā, 21/F California Tower, 30-32 d'aguilar Street, Central
Registration closed

Deliveroo, the leading on-demand food delivery platform, operates in over 200 cities globally. After launching Deliveroo Hong Kong in late 2015, General Manager Brian Lo has rapidly grown the business across the island, Kowloon and New Territories, employing hundreds of riders and partnering with over 2,500 restaurants in the city.

Join us for a fireside chat with Brian as we learn about the opportunities and challenges inherent in tailoring a global business model to the Hong Kong market. Well known for his down-to-earth yet creative management style, Brian makes it a point to regularly deliver meals and pick up customer service calls himself in order to remain fully rooted in day-to-day company operations. His approach is certainly part of Deliveroo's recipe for success: since entering the Hong Kong market, the company has maintained month-on-month double-digit growth.

Brian will share his thoughts on the future of food delivery businesses in Hong Kong, the use of technology and data to analyse consumer behaviour, and how to cultivate a dynamic company culture. We’ll also hear about his role in Deliveroo Hong Kong’s incredible creative growth and influence in the delivery space — combining online and “offline” platforms, launching the first delivery-only kitchen concept in HK, and how application of behaviour trend data has facilitated the expansion and launch of virtual brands.

7pm - 8pm: Fireside Chat with Brian Lo

Bites/snacks will be generously provided by Deliveroo. Optional cash bar available. Please note that this event may be recorded.
