2. The growing paradox with availability of over-capacity and constraints on human capital in the commercial sector.

3. The rise of the web, where spends on digital is growing. Moreover, digital is challenging the traditional media landscape.

4. Proximity retail will be the next big thing in retailing, replacing the traditional modes.

6. The correct way to build long-term brands is the acceptance of social responsibility.

7. Facebook is a branding medium, but not an advertising medium.

8. Investment in communication services in not a cost, but an investment.
