Sanjay Trehan, CEO, NDTV Convergence Ltd, said, “New media is not just another buzz word to be dropped at a meeting of the minds, but is one of the most influential phenomena in recent times, which has changed the very basic aspect of our lives – conversation. It has changed the very fabric that binds lives, companies and economies – information. You don’t need to be a leader anymore to voice your opinion, as the whole world becomes your audience at the click of a mouse.”
