The inaugural PR & Corporate Communications Summit featured some very insightful keynote addresses. One such keynote address was delivered by Ashwini Singla, CEO, Genesis Burson-Martseller, said that in its present state, the PR profession was grossly "undervalued as well as underrated" and there was need to put the 'public' back into Public Relations.
The first ever India PR & Corporate Communications Summit, held in Delhi on May 21, 2010, commenced with a special address by Chief Guest Dr Sanjaya Baru, Editor, Business Standard, and former Press Advisor to the Prime Minister of India. While covering the various issues facing the industry today, Dr Baru highlighted the importance of credibility in PR.
