Asking the right questions to the right people is the only way to drive innovation and stay inspired. However, more often than not it becomes the most difficult feat to achieve. Why? Because most of us do not have direct access to key industry leaders and experts who are ready to chat with us and discuss the growth prospects and developments in our fields of interest. Agree?
Welcome The Advertising Club’s virtual Twitter Townhall! In partnership with Twitter India, with this initiative, the Advertising Club is all set to showcase the unique and innovative concept of Twitter Townhall in India. Under this initiative, the Advertising Club will provide a platform to Industry leaders to interact and inspire young and inquisitive minds across the country.
Raj Nayak, President of The Advertising Club said, “The world is going digital and India remains a major player in this realm. Conducting a first-of-its-kind virtual Twitter Townhall in the midst of all this, is an extremely exciting prospect for us. I would call it a ‘digital reach-out program’, because with this new initiative we are comprehensively erasing the narrow boundaries of time, geographies and hierarchies, and making it possible for inquiring minds to connect with business leaders in a unique and meaningful manner. We hope to continue breaking ground with the Advertising Club and initiating programs that foster growth for digital India.”
Rishi Jaitly, Vice President – Media for Asia-Pacific, Middle East and North Africa, added, Twitter India added, “Twitter Townhalls have been used by global business and political leaders to connect with their followers and audiences at large, for quite some time now. Bringing the Townhall to India is a huge step for digital India. I can say that we, at Twitter India, are excited to be associated with the Advertising Club to launch this initiative that is going to further encourage interaction and foster ambivalence for the ever growing digital audience in India.”
The Twitter Townhall will kick start on 12th February, 2016 with Rahul Welde, VP – Media, Unilever, for Asia, Africa, Middle East, Turkey and Russia. The townhall will be chaired by eminent business personality to every week, including CMOs, CEOs, agency heads, media journalists and media honchos.
