Hello, my name is Nukhet Vardar,
How an a local brands compete against international giants,
Jollibee, or Asia's McDonald's?
If I need to introduce myself briefly,
I must say that I have been working in marketing and advertising area since 1985.
I value myself for being both an academic and a practitioner.
I always enjoyed sharing my thoughts and views in marketing, branding and advertising.
So far I have 13 books,
for a detailed CV you can visit my company website,
and have a look at my CV at www.elizi.net.
Now let us start discussing our topic for today.
Today, we will be talking about Jollibee or Jallebee as it is pronounced locally,
which started as a small local brand in the fast food sector in the Philippines,
just before McDonald's entry to this market.
Becoming a major competitor of McDonald's in the Philippines as well as around the globe.
