Turn+ will add "a unique layer" to the existing offerings of Turn, founded by Tony Hon in 2005.

“At Turn+, our ideas will not be bounded by any type of media," said Leung. "We will only focus on the ones that relevant to our target audience. Our goal is to become the prototype of the next-generation creative agency.”

Leung also offered testimonials from two former clients.

"Rudi is one of the most influential pioneers in social media without doubt. He is full of vision and passion," said Brucemond Chan, senior marketing manager at Fonterra Hong Kong. "With his strong social pulse, Rudi would inspire both his team and client to think out of the box and seize the social media wave for optimisation,"
