If you want to create business value from your communications in today’s environment you need to master both the art and the science behind corporate communication. As corporate communications moves from “nice to have” to “absolutely essential” the expectations and demands towards professionals have grown tremendously - in particular as we embrace the world of social media and online communications.

We are excited to welcome two expert speakers: Dr. Mukund Rajan, Brand Custodian and Group Spokesperson, Tata Group and Nishant K. Rao, Country Manager, LinkedIn India. Mukund Rajan and Nishant K. Rao will share their thoughts, from the perspective of business leaders, on the strategic nature of communications, the opportunities and challenges the communications function must embrace in order to be even more successful. The meeting will also provide ample opportunity to discuss pressing and relevant topics in corporate communications, network and access senior executives, meet fellow APACD members and to share your ideas towards the next steps of the Indian country network.
