VISHAL & SACAC:
Contrary to the world, I believe that creativity is not reserved for just a few. It is like water and air – critical for life and absolutely free. I try to help students discover and channelize their creativity. My key focus areas are insights, ideas and innovation.
THE SACAC EXPERIENCE:
SACAC is an important part of my journey. I came to Delhi to study at SACAC and since then I have been associated with it. SACAC has been an enriching experience for me and I have learnt advertising as well as important life lessons from my teachers, classmates and students. Every time I interact with a batch, I realise that there’s so much more to learn and I hope I am able to give something back too.
