There was a scintillating key note address by Suhel Seth, Founder, Counselage, who had the audience spell bound with his thought provoking address. He said advertising has to reclaim the position it enjoyed in the yester-years. He lamented the disappearance of many habits in advertising professionals like reading, inability to have a conversation with clients. He said unless all these makes a comeback advertising will never get the respect it deserves from clients.



He also said advertising and history are the only things that can be reflective of the culture and society we are in and to that extent advertising has a key role to play in our lives. He told the younger generation to enjoy the profession and extolled them to get back advertisings rightful place. Noting that Madras had produced stalwarts in advertising like S R Aiyer, R K Swamy, it gave him great pride in addressing members of the Madras Advertising Club.
