Giving his take on the workshop, Sajal Mukherjee, Director, FMCC, said, “Yes, there is a need for brand management in media. We conducted this workshop in which lot of eminent people participated and shared their experience. The common thought, which evolved out of the workshop, is that a brand has to create its own niche. A media product has to create its own identity and stand for a value.”
India Today Group’s Ashima Saini was all praise for the workshop. “Well conducted, relevant topics, good speakers, courteous management. One of the most interesting workshops I have attended,” she said.
