About

From there, Lu launched brand activation campaigns for NSW Trade & Investment, Expedia and helped tech start-ups raise millions from 2013 to 2017 as a global creative director at 500 Global. She will share her first-hand experience and detail her journey from being an attendee to a SXSW feature speaker on Cross-Cultural Innovation and Creativity, to one of the featured speakers for the inaugural SXSW Sydney 2023. She will share creative case studies that make you cry and laugh, and tips & suggestions for making the best of the festival and life.
