We believe the PR profession in India has come of age. Thousands work in consultancies and in-house teams but the movers and shakers are about a hundred who drive excellence, inspire confidence and have come to become role models. We will profile this list of 100 men and women each year, starting September 2017.
As always, we are about inclusion and diversity, so we will try to focus on 25 men from in-house and 25 from consultancies. Similarly, we will aim to have 25 women from in-house and 25 from consultancies. Nominations and self nominations to the list are open from June 10th to June 28th.
How will we arrive at 25 in each of the four sections? – In the consulting category, we will look at leaders who have founded or built or sustained big brands. People who have created employment, won big mandates, stayed the course, run the race long enough and grown leaps and bounds. In the in-house category, we will look for those who have two decades of experience and longer. There will be exceptions. We will talk to peers, look for contribution to knowledge sharing and also gauge the respect they command among subordinates.
