How would you describe your duties?
I work in celebrity management, event management and direct to consumer sourcing for P&G, which means I get to meet and interact with all the leading Bollywood celebrities. I can't tell you how cool it is to get paid to coordinate promotions and contests with the "who's who" of the entertainment industry. My friends and coworkers are very jealous.
What excites you most about your future with P&G?
I have a clear vision of what my career is going to be in seven to ten years down the line. P&G allows you to clearly see the impact that your assignments have on both the overall business and your career progression.
What was your most exciting day with P&G?
It has to be when I met leading Bollywood celebrity Katrina Kaif, who is one of the most searched for people on Google every day. The company was taking her on as a Global Brand Ambassador for Pantene and here I was sitting down with her comfortably (something most men of my age could only dream of) discussing hair care. It’s an experience I’ll never forget.
