Renu Kakkar, Vice President-Technology and Corporate Communications, Apeejay Surrendra Group, spoke about focussing communication as a driving force for corporate value.

Concluding her talk, she remarked, “Corporate communication should not be viewed as a separate department; it has to be looked upon as core value for the business of your company.”
