Mad Over Marketing's "The Mad Talk"

Mad! Madder! Maddest!

Want to know how marketing can be entertaining as well as informative?

Put on your seat belts for Mad over Marketing’s “The MAD Talk” as it is going to be ruthless and sarcastic. Listen to their take on various aspects of Marketing. The Mad talk would revolve around the three critical pillars for marketers.

The talk would cover topics like minimal advertising, ambush marketing, brand wars, the evolution of advertising and lots more with a flavour of madness, humour and fun. Join us at TRBS.
