Uday Shankar, President, The Walt Disney Company Asia Pacific and Chairman, Star and Disney India delivered the AAAI Subhas Ghosal Memorial Lecture 2019 at Four Seasons, Worli, Mumbai on Monday.


Outlining why he has been in media for 30 years and continues to be so, Shankar said, “My career, first as a journalist and then as a broader media professional, let me observe and understand this country deeply, objectively and uniquely. As I slowly discovered, my profession also equipped me with an ability to impact this country and its people – both individually and collectively – in a way that few, if any other professions could have. It is the media – the journalists; the advertisers; the story tellers who enable us to make sense of the world. My 30 years in the media industry feels like I am just getting started because it has allowed me to not only understand and experience India in an unbelievable way, but over the years we have become change agents for India.”


Prabhakar Mundkur, a veteran from the advertising world and currently Brand Strategy Advisor and a frequent contributor to MxMIndia, reminisced about Ghosal gave the audience an insight into what made him an outstanding advertising man and a leader that the entire advertising industry loved and revered.


Said Sam Balsara, “On behalf of Subhas Ghosal Foundation, I want to thank Uday Shankar for kindly agreeing to deliver the Lecture and delivering an outstanding, enlightening and thought provoking one. I also thank the audience, for coming in large numbers to keep the memory of Subhas Ghosal alive, many decades after his passing away. I also want to thank Avinash Pandey and ABP Live, because of whose graceful support, the Lecture was made possible.”
