If there is one word that would describe our two-year-plus journey that has led to MSLGROUP Social Hive India, it would be “FUN”. How could it be anything else! Dangerous, perhaps? Enthusiasm and a team that contributes at every level, in every possible way, has led us through pitches, execution and world-class campaigns.

“Anything amazed you since you’ve been here?”
“I guess it’s how fast I got used to this place” I answered without hesitation.
New York is such an amazing place, its easy to embrace one’s cultural differences and just feel at home in this city, all doubts of being an outside visitor are taken away. Although the city is well-known for this already, I’m still impressed while I see it happen before my eyes. Thinking back on the 2 weeks I’ve spent in New York, I guess it’s more because of the people I met that enhanced this feeling, all were so kind & cheerful in personality and so generous in sharing.

On the morning of April 7th 2013, a bunch of MSLGROUP Asia’s senior managers convened around the coffee area in a conference room in Singapore, introducing each other and swapping common client stories in anticipation of what I for one, expected to be a rather dry summit on systems and processes. How wrong we were! The four day summit prompted intense discussion and innovative case studies delivered with innovation and passion – reflecting one of our key goals of being an unbound source of creativity and engagement.
