Bates CHI & Partners India
"Sourabh Mishra was the Group Chief Strategy Officer at Bates CHI & Partners and a valued member of our senior management team. We continued our association when he moved on from Bates to start his independent brand consulting practice - hiring him as an independent consultant to provide strategic input for a new business project at Bates.
As CEO, I always found Sourabh to be a great sounding board on business as well as an inspiring strategy leader, who hired and built a great strategy planning team at Bates."
Founder & Chief Executive Officer
"Sourabh came as the brand strategy partner to our design agency, who we had tasked with refreshing our logo and corporate identity. He gave a foundation of sound strategy to the design work, after a thorough research with both our internal stakeholders as well as our clients to understand our business dynamics.
We re-engaged Sourabh later to take the brand thinking forward in our marketing communications. He helped us identify and brief multiple vendors, and thereafter choose the partner vendors for managing the entire process as well as developing the content."
Head Brand Marketing
"Sourabh Mishra did a project for us on creating a brand strategy and idea for Reliance Roads (a part of Reliance Infrastructure). His commitment to understanding the business and its requirements first, before starting work on the brand, was commendable. His process of involving all the key stakeholders across locations through in-depth interviews and thereafter in a day-long brand workshop, was valued greatly. The final strategy and the brand idea that came out of this co-creation exercise is highly appreciated by us.
Sourabh's experience and expertise in brand strategy, as well as his ability to engage senior stakeholders from diverse backgrounds, helped greatly in this project and deserves a special mention."
