There is one simple mantra Neha lives by: “Life’s too short to live boring, do boring or eat boring.” Her working marketing career reflects the same which has spanned across multinational environments to taking her own FMCG brand from the R & D bench to over 300 stores across Australia in under 10 months while winning over 25 industry awards. Life is everything but dull in the world of Neha where she is passionate about taking a brand from zero to hero through a strategic, alternative, customised marketing approach powered by digital media but never underestimates the power of good old traditional relationship-based marketing. Be it e-business, brand creation, B2B or tapping into the power of digital – Neha is energised by the intricacies and power of marketing especially when work is fueled by great food – yup she is a die-hard foodie!
