Campaign Crash Course: Your favourite teachers and subjects

Campaign Asia-Pacific launched the Campaign Crash Course video-learning series in September, promising valuable lessons and practical business tips on trending and essential topics from industry experts in just five minutes (plus a quiz). The response, from both industry folks wanting to contribute and from you viewing the weekly lessons, has been extremely positive. We're hard at work on keeping our pipeline of Crash Courses filled for next year. But this week, as the year winds down, we decided to let anyone who may have been tardy catch up on the five most popular lessons thus far.
