Harish Manwani, President Asia & Africa, Unilever, and Chairman, HLL Ltd India, will address top advertising and marketing honchos as part of a series of lectures organised by the India Chapter of International Advertising Association under its International Indians series on February 14, 2006. He will be speaking on ‘Winning in Developing and Emerging Markets’. The event is being presented by The Economic Times and Times Now.
Elaborating on the lecture series, Sam Balsara, President of IAA India Chapter, said, “With the Indian economy rapidly globalising and with so many Indians holding key positions in global corporations and guiding their destinies, we thought the IAA could step in and give its members and guests an opportunity to interact with such globally reputed and powerful Indians and benefit from their experiences and wisdom. We are lucky to have Harish Manwani as our first speaker in this series.”
