“In this digital age, branding and strong brands remain key to unlocking value. Technology has created shorter attention spans and fragmented media channels, but it has also exploded the possibilities for brands to reach consumers through different touch points. Trust, quality, reputation, and the purpose of a brand are as key, if not more so, as consumers choose their preferred brand,” said keynote speaker Prabha Narasimhan, MD & CEO, Colgate-Palmolive (India) Ltd.
She further added that they are committed to keeping Colgate-Palmolive brands vital with consumer-centricity, innovation, and technology at the core.
Amit Kumar Gupta, Business Head, ETB2B Business Verticals, said, “The Indian advertising industry is significantly shifting, with core marketing principles being challenged.

The Brand World Summit is an opportunity for the best minds in the industry to come together and discuss the future of marketing.”
