The pleasure of working with like-minded people who share the same vision and motivation of delivering world-class events is what is going to drive me and the team.” Speaking on this new initiative, Arvind Sharma, chairman, India Subcontinent, Leo Burnett, commented, “Clients’ marketing plans have been evolving over the years.
