Sascha Funk is a German Professor in Digital Marketing, Journalism, and Media Studies, teaching in many leading universities in Thailand. After experiencing the soulless culture of a marketing agency, he decided to make a change in his life and became a volunteer English teacher in North Eastern Thailand. He saw the impact he made through education and returned to his roots in Digital Marketing to lead change from university classrooms. He prefers to give creative challenges where students have to experiment with ideas and think critically. He’s also passionate about ed-tech, personal development, traveling, Thai boxing, and shares his thoughts and experiences on his blog, http://my-thai.org
