On the digital business ecosystem, Singh highlights the fact that earlier people were concerned only about ‘performance’ but now most have understood the value of ‘branding’ and hence relate branding to performance in business. “It’s getting evened out or balanced out than one taking over the other”, he muses on performance, branding and the advent of digital media and environment.

Speaking on regional content and platforms such as TikTok, ShareChat, Vigo, and more, he mentions, “Depth of penetration of digital is increasing”, and that such channels are in the leadership position to provide conversation and entertaining content to the people.
