I firmly believe Innovation, Impact, Reach backed with Cost Efficiency are important pillars for leading successful outdoor campaigns. The real challenge and potential is measured when a brand stands out visible with low pockets across customer touch points innovatively amidst fierce competiton from high spending brands. High spends doesnt always lead to better innovations ! I would look forward to nominations from brands which have really made a difference in reaching out innovatively to the right set of consumers and have also maintained a good healthy cost focused approach leading to better ROI.


Very self motivated, love to think beyond frames and firmly believe that passion, positivity and conviction are lethal tools towards creating magic at work and the stepping stone for creating something awesome always.
