Here are some promises industry honchos have made to themselves by way of New Year resolutions

Aditya Save

Chief Marketing Officer,

The idea is to ‘un-schedule’ part of the day in 2016 … not to clog up the entire day with meetings. 

Anupriya Acharya

Group CEO, ZenithOptimedia Group, India

To be a better person and have a better balance. I also want to evolve to become a better person.

Avinash Pandey

Chief Revenue Officer - ANN & COO, ABP News

I have only one resolution - to convince all media buyers that news should be bought at a more expensive rate than entertainment channels, because news impacts society overall, rather than just one section of society.

Bobby Pawar

Director and CCO, S Asia, Publicis India

My New Year resolution would be to walk down a different road than the previous year and to do things which we ourselves could not imagine doing.

CVL Srinivas

CEO, GroupM South Asia

I want to eat more chocolates in 2016. I just want to do things that I like doing more frequently and eating chocolates tops the list.

I Venkat

Director, Eenadu

I make no resolutions, I break no resolutions, that’s my resolution.


Paresh Chaudhry

CEO, Madison PR

I have no resolutions for sure… but what I have decided is that I am going to do what my heart tells me to, in terms of communication. I am going to be following what the media wants, what the client is really looking for… unexpected things. I am going to do what I feel and my agency feels is good for the brand, I am going to do exactly that every day this New Year.

Partho Dasgupta

CEO, Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC)

To push forward whatever we have set out to do much more, bring in more speed and precision to the whole thing. On the personal front, I want to spend more time with my daughter as she has her ICSE exams this year.

Rahul Johri

EVP & GM - South Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific

Innovate, Innovate, and Innovate…  I believe all businesses need to change regularly. It not only means improvising things that you already do well, it also implies incremental change by transformation and product differentiation. My primary focus for 2016 would be on innovation across content, marketing and understanding viewer preferences. 

Raj Nayak

CEO, Colors

My resolution for the New Year is what I try and tell myself every year - to be a good human being because nothing else matters.

Rohit Gupta

President, Sony Pictures Networks India

My personal resolutions are very clear: I am going to lose some more weight as I have been working hard on it. On the professional side, very clearly I need to ensure that the growth which we have had in the last two years, continues at a network level, and that the next season of IPL is one of the biggest seasons we have ever had. We want to cross some new landmarks, both in terms of revenues and viewership, for the next IPL.

Sam Balsara

Chairman, Madison World

We recently launched a new programme called Madison Next and this year my objective would be to pursue that programme even more vigorously. In keeping with that programme, there should also be a Sam Next.

Sandeep Sharma

President, RK Swamy Media Group

My resolution every year is the same - work hard, party harder. Having said that, there are some very important milestones I need to achieve on the work front, so I will focus on that and also on spending more leisure time and arriving at a better work-life balance and stay healthy.

Sandipan Bhattacharya

Chief Creative Officer, Grey Group India

I want to try and make agencies value their ideas better. I don’t think we as an industry respect and value our ideas and as a consequence, clients don’t do it either. If I could do anything to make the industry realize the value of our ideas and the role and importance of what we do, I would definitely give it a shot in the coming year.

Sanjay Tripathy

SVP, Head Marketing, Product, Analytics, Digital and e-commerce, HDFC Life

I plan to become more organized in 2016. I am planning to do my first international marathon next year. If that goes well, I am planning to do a few more international marathons next year.

Shashank Sinha

Senior GM, Marketing, Eureka Forbes

Our resolution would be to drive innovation in 2016, by aligning our go-to-market strategy to emerging trends and insights. We aim to adopt newer technologies to provide breakthrough products, and strengthen our customer service and response management.

Shashi Sinha

CEO, IPG Mediabrands India

To exercise and to lose weight and on the work front, take it as it comes.
