Marcom Lead

Managing the Marketing Communication for the DPE team of Microsoft India, I played a pivotal role in facilitating creative work for the developer engagement team - both internally and externally.

Much of my work was co-ordinating with agencies and getting the best results for my team needs, but I also enjoyed hands-on creative work when the deadlines were shorter, to avoid delays and paperwork!
