How excited are you about the conference?
The marketplace today is equally dynamic for consumers and marketers. It will be a good experience to witness top brands across categories at the award function. I’m looking forward to being there and sharing valuable time and knowledge with my peers.
What are your expectations from the conference?
There are a number of very interesting topics being covered at the Pitch BrandTalk conference, which are relevant to many of the challenges marketing professionals face today. I am sure that it will be a great forum to share learnings and pick up new insights and perspectives from the other participants.
Anything specific that you have decided to speak up at the conference?
Consumers do not just share a transactional equation with brands but an emotional equation. Hence the product, pricing, etc. are hygiene. To create value and increase affinity, consumers need to be at the center of what the brand stands for. Tata Tea has done that very well for more than a decade now through its Jaago Re campaign. However, to ensure that a brand is genuine about its consumers, there are clear Do’s and Don’t’s that marketing professionals must follow.
