IAA India Chapter president & IAA VP development Asia/Pacific region Srinivasan K Swamy said, "IAA has been thinking of doing something for young executives who are the backbone of industry tomorrow. With the launch of IAA Young Turks Forum, we hope to fill this gap. We are delighted to have someone like Nihal Kaviratne who has rich global experience to be our guest at the inaugural IAA Young Turks Forum series. We are sure young professionals will take full opportunity to learn from his insights on whatever he expounds.”

We are confident in presenting top notch leaders every two months to this young audience”.

The chosen best article will win a Nokia cellphone along with a Certificate from the International Advertising Association.
