  1. It was a great conference showcasing the Who’s Who of Pakistan’s marketing world and comprising of presentations that revealed a plethora of marketing insights that enriched the learning of all marketers attending it.

    Mr. Naveed’s presentation was good as well though it would have been good if he had talked about some of the shortcomings of PTCL as well instead of just highlighting the advantages. That would have really endeared the PTCL brand to the marketers present there because not a single marketer or brand manager spoke about the foibles of his brand.

    Mr. Naveed could have made a difference by breaking away from the rest of the pack.

    Of course the conference itself had its share of shortcomings as well, most notably the cramped seating arrangement which may do for a few hours event but is debilitating for a full-day event. Then there was the time management issue, with the event ending 1.5 hours late than the scheduled close. But all in all it was a conference worth attending.
