What others say

Vinayak joined our organisation and built a team up from scratch. The team was challenged to create a buzz around a new product with limited marketing budgets to spend. This required the team to work quickly, nimbly and to think differently. The quality of the output they created in such a short period of time was excellent and the results were very promising.
