Parveez Modak, Sr. Vice President, Hanmer MSL:
Hanmer MSL India had the privilege of hosting our colleagues from Publicis Consultants Paris – Anne-Isabelle Court, Jean-Jacques Rebouil and Rachel Kolbe – who had rightly chosen to visit Mumbai, India as their mobility experience!
In the two days they spent with us, we had a lot of things to share and a lot of things to learn. While the social media team at Hanmer MSL showcased some of the work that was being done in India, such as the award winning eBay.in campaign (see video below) the Publicis Consultants team impressed us with their integrated Road Safety campaign and the AXA brand repositioning campaign. The Mumbai team enjoyed the interactions and discussions and we are certain that the Publicis Consultants team and the Hanmer MSL team in India will continue to work closely together going forward.
Apart from all the excitement in office, Anne, Jean-Jacques and Rachel also managed to spend some time in Mumbai absorbing the local culture, sights and of course, the food. They visited Banganga (a temple tank in Walkeshwar), Hanging Gardens, the famous slum tour of Dharavi, Haji Ali Dargah amongst other famous spots. Foodies to the core, Anne, Jean-Jacques and Rachel enjoyed the rolls and kababs at Bade-Miyan (I am sure they were “regulars” there) and discovered a selection of typical Indian sweets the Hanmer MSL team shared with them.
I do have to make a special mention about the wonderful evening-out I had with Anne, Jean-Jacques and Rachel. We started at Gokul for drinks (Old Monk Rum) followed by dinner at Trishna (wonderful garlic-salt-pepper crab) and ended with a nightcap at HQ (a pub).
We look forward to having them again and hosting many more MSLGROUP colleagues in India.
