The Oberoi, Gurugram, was the podium for an unforgettable evening as Storyboard18’s Visionaries event took place. This assemblage witnessed luminaries from the advertising and marketing industry who shared their incredible journeys in steering the ever-evolving terrain of disruptive technology.
In an age where platforms reevaluate how companies coalesce with consumers, it is the visionaries who are at the front, using innovative technologies to drive industries ahead. They are the creators of a future we desire, and Storyboard18 is dedicated to acknowledging and honouring these innovative and brilliant minds in the marketing sphere.
Honouring and inspiring leaders: The ‘Visionaries’
The evening was a powerful display of the marketing and advertising industry’s past, present and promising future. Suresh Narayanan, managing director of Nestlé India, delivered a dynamic and motivating keynote address, filling the event with energy and enthusiasm.
Storyboard18 grabbed the prospect of not only honouring the ‘Visionaries’ but also celebrating and motivating leaders in the advertising and marketing industry.
The occasion featured compelling panel conversations on key issues, including a spirited discussion on the evolving relationship between CEOs and their CMOs, analysing whether CMOs can step into the shoes of CEOs themselves. The panel was led by Delshad Irani, editor, Storyboard18, with eminent panellists including Aseem Kaushik, MD, L’Oreal India; Kulmeet Bawa, president and MD, SAP India; Adobe India; Sukhleen Aneja, chief executive officer, Good Glamm Group; Prativa Mohapatra, vice president and managing director; Madhav Sheth, CEO, HTECH; and Devendra Chawla, CEO, GreenCell Mobility.
The entire session had some invaluable insights on how the big marketing opportunity has arrived, called for action in the present, and the elemental role played by the CEOs driving their company’s growth agenda. CMOs are on the runway with the CEOs, and a powerful alliance will meditate on the development and numbers intensely.
