On Friday, MICA’s student run committee MICA Leadership Series hosted Mr. Avinash Pant, Director, Marketing, Red Bull India. Mr. Pant educated the students on the marketing and branding, bringing in examples from the industry to illustrate the same.
Mr. Pant emphasized the importance of understanding your consumer, and thus, making a conscious decision on what you don’t want to do. He urges the students to create a brand that inspires consumers. “Think influencer, not endorsement”, says Pant.
He further deliberated that the times are ever evolving. A good brand is not one that consumers put on a pedestal, but rather one that finds its greatness and makes it count, he shares.
He emphasized the importance of having a sense of humour, and connecting with the audience. Sharing the ideology that drives Red Bull’s marketing, he says, “Have the guts to go that far. You will see a lot of brand keys and brand onions and what not – but as the custodians of a brand, you need to not be boring.”
Mr. Pant ended by urging the students to always remember to keep it real, and as future brand managers, never lose touch with the actual real world, following which, he was presented with a portrait as a token of MICA’s appreciation by Ms. Preeti Shroff, Dean, MICA.
