The journey of expanding a brand from a local gem to an international sensation can be a daunting undertaking. Despite this, there are many stories of determined brands that have conquered international markets that can illuminate the path to success.

Telum sat down with a selection of PR and communications practitioners across Southeast Asia to understand the key factors for successfully expanding a local brand overseas and the challenges these brands have encountered during the process.

We spoke with:
