I have worked with Madison PR for over 8 years and find them to be thoughtful, strategic and adding value to building brands and businesses. Their client roster is testimony to this, especially their growth in the last 2-3 years. What is exceptional about Madison is their objective assessment of the client's needs and delivery against that.
Vinita Bali Managing Director - Britannia Industries Ltd.
Madison is very much part of the marketing team of CCD. As a brand that has been pretty much built around PR, almost every element of our marketing has been shaped, driven and delivered by PR and in this process, the role played by Madison is immense. While I say this, this does not restrict to brand campaigns or promotions. The role Madison has played goes well into the corporate domain in terms of crisis management as well as management of influencers. They have served the role of a counsel in moments of delight as well as despair. Thanks to the team In Madison for considering CCD their brand more than a client.
K Ramkrishnan President – Marketing Café Coffee Day

Working with Madison PR has been a total delight. The focus with which PUMA operates has transcended into the media communications region under the strong leadership of Paresh. Within a year of partnering with Madison, PUMA has been able to achieve stellar results. We set out to this year with the single minded objective of educating the people of India about the sport of running and all our partners integrated this messaging in their strategies, so did Madison and the result – PUMA becoming the 2nd best Sportswear brand in India. We like the approachability and the brand understanding that Madison brings to the table. The responsibility towards Puma that Paresh carries is translated by his entire team as well. We look forward to exciting times ahead!

"We have just concluded the launch PR phase of SHIFF. The entire set of events went off exactly per plan. To begin with, the concept was well thought out, in line with Pamper and Protect that the brand stands for. The selection of celebrity pair of Pooja and daughter was very appropriate. More important, thereafter everything was very well executed. As a result, we had good attendance at all four centres. Coverage, so far, is very encouraging.
I'd like to place on record our appreciation of the excellent work put in by your team. Look forward to seeing continued good work coming in."

"Just wanted to offer my congratulations. What blew me away most of all was the fact that not a single newspaper (ANYWHERE) talked about even a possibility or a hint of a reduction in product quality. This was our biggest fear and our holistic marketing plans(demos, ER, copy focus on performance) ensured that we were able to avoid this."
Rahul Malhotra, Country Marketing Manager, P&G on Ariel & Tide Price Drop

"Shweta, Veena, Christopher and team from Madison, I wanted to say how impressed I was with your PR event for the launch of Whisper Choice in Chennai.
The event itself was truely impressive, from the high number of media and consumers (mothers and daughters) that attended, the quality of the judging panel, the choice and calibre of the celebrity, down to the finest details of the execution which you pulled off extremely smoothly. I particularly liked the PR angle that you chose, and I believe that by tapping into an area that is of social interest to Indian women (and their daughters), you are really onto something big.
Congratulations to the whole team, please pass on my message to the rest of the team who were hard working "behind the scenes!"
The event has given me great insight to the media environment in India, and I believe you truely have an outstanding team capable of delivering BIG PR plans for the India market."
