Innovation happens when trust shifts away from the status quo and towards a new way of doing things. Trust enables innovation in the digital economy by powering new platforms for commerce – from Alibaba to Carousell, Airbnb to Tinder. The effect is nothing short of a revolution. The Trust Economy introduces a structured methodology for companies and individuals to build trust and realise exponential value in the digital innovation economy. Available in major bookstores in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand (Marshall Cavendish, 2017) and in German throughout the DACH region (Springer Gabler, 2018) as well as on Amazon: English and German. You can also download a sample chapter (English version).

The Trust Economy explains how technology is rewiring us to trust in what would have been unthinkable just a few years ago, and why The Trust Economy is here to stay. It introduces a six-stage ‘trust-hacking’ methodology for anyone to amplify their ability to effectively build trust in the digital economy: As trust is transforming, building it requires a fundamentally new approach, and only the most trusted players will succeed.
