Hindustan Unilever’s Nitin Paranjpe to give Keynote at exchange4media Conclave

Every conversation on communication services first acknowledges that the consumer is changing every day.

The Conclave is set to take place in Mumbai on July 15, 2011. The opening Keynote Speaker Nitin Paranjpe, CEO & MD, Hindustan Unilever Ltd, will set the tone of the conversations in his address, where he speaks on “Changing Consumers, Changing Business… The New Face of Marketing”
