EDITORIAL

Richa Sharma

Richa was almost content with the role of raising a perfect family until the day when she received a call from MensenTock. She said yes and expressed her interest for pro bono work with MensenTock. Richa was the first member to join the team and since then, she has been editing and copywriting for the company and its clients. Richa has a solid background in advertising and account servicing as she had worked with Bates India (WPP) and Saatchi and Saatchi. She later found academic work with an editing firm more attractive and this academic bent steered her towards teaching Advertising and Cinema at SIES Group of Institutions. Meticulous in articulating her thoughts, Richa writes for the readers and not for the clients. Well, this is one of the reasons the clients are all praises for her work.
