Building a successful brand:

As a branding guru, Rajeev shares his insights on what goes into building a successful brand. He believes that the right mixture of strategy and execution is the key.

“The recipe is pretty much simple as you know. You talk about what goes into building a successful business because when you’re building a brand you’re building a business. You know what distinct advantage you have over others. You know and how you execute that so you know whether you’re able to know how meaningful you are to the consumers you know both in terms of your emotional as well as rational benefits.”

His advice to the many young managers is very simple:

“My advice would be- stay humble from day one. Stay humble because people come with these gorgeous university degrees and they think they’ve achieved Nirvana but you know degrees are important but the school of hard knock is more important. So stay humble, learn from everybody and value relationships. Be a constant learner, keep an open mind!”
