XIM hosts Annual Media Conclave: COMMUNIQUÉ ‘23

Bhubaneswar, 27/11/2023 ( Odisha Samachar )- XIM Bhubaneswar conducted the Annual Media Conclave: COMMUNIQUÉ 2023, hosted by IlluminatiX, The Media and PR Cell of XIM Bhubaneswar. This year the theme was “Effective Communication In The Times Of Infinite Exposure”.

 The session commenced with the speakers lighting the lamp, followed by Prof. Francis Thomas Castelino, moderator for the day addressing the audience. The first speaker of the day, Ms. Shivani Talim, Ad Sales, Jio Cinemas, emphasized the prevalent FOMO in the industry. She added, “The reason an ad is so successful is not just because of great screenplay, or audio but, because it is backed by data”.

 The second speaker for the day was Mr. Deepak Mohanty, Vice President, Strategic Business Change, at HSBC. He highlighted several strategies, including adopting a push approach, leveraging pull-through advertising, developing customer profiles and segmentation, and ensuring alignment of communication with the customer’s journey.

Tokenization, NFT and Blockchainare the new frontiers explored even by traditional sectors like banks”.

The third speaker for the day was Mr. Nithin Monteiro SJ, Doctoral Scholar, School of Governance & Public Affairs. He showcased ads from major brands, illustrating how unique communication attempts can sometimes backfire. He also highlighted cases where the same brands took different stances in separate ads. Mr. Nithin stated, “In today’s age, we are confronted with a multitude of choices, and the onus of decision-making rests on our shoulders”. He emphasized that disruption is the process of breaking down established systems to pave the way for something entirely new and innovative.
