IAA’s first webinar with Mr. Rajan Anandan, in April, was an impressive success. We had nearly 200 people participating and more than 1000 people seeing it on our YouTube channel later. Going by that, I am confident that this second webinar will have at least twice the number. A small service, that IAA is providing, for young professionals and others to learn more about the digital medium.
Mr. Abhishek Karnani, Director, Free Press Journal and Mr. Manish Advani, Head – Marketing & Public Relations, Mahindra Special Services Group, are co-chairing this IAA webinar series.
