The world’s eyes were set on NexBrand’s Brand Summit, held on January 30 at Mumbai’s swanky ITC Grand Maratha Hotel. India’s crème de la crème across various sectors were being honoured on NexBrand’s prestigious stage, which has fast become one of India’s most coveted. The glittering night honoured those who are powering India’s growth to a global superpower.
NexBrand’s Brand Vision Summit was founded in 2015 with the vision to honour India’s highest achievers across the spectrum, from Corporate and Entertainment to Literature, Philanthropy and Sports. Past recipients of the honour include names like Niranjan Hiranandani, Sonam Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Sunidhi Chauhan, Randeep Hooda, Kiran Mazumdar – Shaw amongst many other renowned names. Each of the recipients has etched their unique imprint on the history of the profession they have passionately pursued. This year too, recipients included illustrious names that have brought immense dignity to their work.
Said Ms. Chandrika Maheshwari, Founder, “Our vision is to honour achievers who are helping India rewrite milestones in the fields of business, arts, literary, philanthropy etc. A nation is built on these cornerstones and our honorees tonight have been doing a great job of giving India a robust foundation. It’s a matter of pride and honour to share the room with them, as we all raise a toast to their collective passion and work!”
Mr. Saurav Dasgupta, Co-Founder said, “Our 3i model that evaluates the impact people and businesses make on societies and economies, is based on best practices followed by leading foundations across the world. All our honorees fared exceptionally on these parameters and are rewriting the rules of the game. Our team has worked relentlessly to make this a glorious edition, and we are indebted to everyone who is here tonight to support us!”
The honorees were chosen based on Brand Vision’s incisive 3i model, which evaluates on the basis of how companies and individuals Impact, Innovate and Inspire the society. The unique model avoids the usual jury-based model’s discrepancies that are often marred with various predispositions.
