There were a lot of announcements during the months of August and September which necessitated a third September issue. 

We hope you enjoy our lead stories about Salesforce+ and ZoomInfo’s ‘The Pipeline’.  Of interest will be “Meet your future Asian Consumer”.  We also found McKinsey’s article about China’s $5 trillion growth opportunity intriguing especially the topic “Seven Segments Shaping China’s Consumption Landscape”, which discusses how the consumption growth for China during the next decade will develop.
