We held five events last year in India, four Provocative dinners; two in Mumbai and two in New Delhi, and one Leadership Masterclass, with leadership expert Thomas Barta. We brought together 18 senior marketers to delve deeper into digital disruption and how to ensure we’re fully prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. We were joined by Kunal Shah, Founder & Chairman, FreeCharge for our second provocative dinner, where we continued to get under the skin of India’s biggest challenges in the marketing industry. The challenges discussed helped shape the rest of our agenda for 2018.
