Students from the MGLuxM January 2021 cohort attended their first Power Talk with Dr Sheetal Jain, where they learnt:

  • How luxury is an art applied to functional items
  • The importance of storytelling for luxury brands
  • How luxury can be subjective and relative to a location
  • How the desire is being sold, rather than the need, in the luxury industry
  • How two luxury brands can never compete as each brand is distinct with a different heritage and approach
  • How luxury brands focus on their unique brand identity and brand DNA

She concluded the interactive session with encouraging findings from her research which estimates that around 200 new luxury brands are poised to enter the Indian market in the near future.

Tarun Jagwani’s Power Talk helped students gain innovative insights and ideas on how they can connect with brands on social media. Here are the key takeaways from his session:

  • He believes in the power of networking and leveraging various social media platforms for new opportunities
  • He trusts in the content produced, irrespective of its media reach, and connects with those brands and creators
  • Keeping a public profile for a brand is important for a wider reach
  • ‘Likes’, ‘comments’ and sharing a brand’s stories helps you connect with the brand eventually over Direct Messaging (DM) and collaborate for projects; the key to it, however, is to be genuine.

He also helped students understand his work process by taking them on a virtual tour into his social media accounts and demonstrating how he comments on posts and connects with people over DMs.
