Today is a very special day for all of us.
We mark our 20th anniversary as a firm.
It is time to reflect on the many milestones we have accomplished, and the many miles we still need to travel.
The environment two decades ago was far less complex. It is different today, when challenges have multiplied along with opportunities.
We now have more in our hand — multiple choices and the option to build value for ourselves and those around us.
There are questions we need to ask: how can we build our own capabilities? How can we build a future based on a solid foundation that comes from what we do at this moment, this day and the year ahead?
How can we give a chance to those who don’t have the opportunities? How can we change that one thing that impacts not just one more person, but at least 10?
You might want to know why we need to ask these questions. We need to because if we want to become successful leaders we need to be able to lead people through Inspiration and our ability to see the Big Picture that matters.
I see the potential in many people in GBM — they have what it takes and I am exceedingly proud of them. Some will succeed, others may not be able to see the path. So Think, Reflect, Act, Achieve and do it all with a smile. Positivity helps not only us, but also those who matter the most — our clients who believe in us and our capabilities.
I wish to thank each and everyone who are with us today, those who have been part of our building blocks, and those who are part of our larger universe.
We are blessed to have so many well-wishers, cheerleaders and supporters.
Thank you all for making this journey a wonderful success!
Congratulations on a wonderful first 20 years, Prema and team. We are sure the next 20 will be even more spectacular.

My heartiest congratulations to you and your colleagues (mine too!) at Genesis Burson-Marsteller on your 20th Anniversary. It makes me proud that our two organizations joined together and can participate in your celebration of having established yourselves as India’s most professional public relations firm.
Our attraction to Genesis as a partner in one of the world’s most exciting markets was, simply, a matter of shared values. The best people, the best client service, a caring and sharing office environment and a commitment to be one seamless firm around the world. As we at Burson-Marsteller in the U.S. look forward to our 60th Anniversary next March 1, we salute our colleagues in India on their 20th. We revel in sharing your joy!

Burson-Marsteller’s global network has made us world leaders in strategic communications and public relations, and Genesis B-M has contributed greatly to building and strengthening our reputation in one of the most vital markets in the world.
There is much to celebrate after two decades including great client work, innovative practices and a rewarding work environment. To each member of the Genesis Burson-Marsteller team, and on behalf of your fellow Burson-Marsteller team members everywhere, best wishes on this 20th Anniversary and all the best for many years to come.
