The ascending growth and stature of this brand is not an overnight miracle, but a tedious process of toiling over activities and processes set in the past that prepare the brand for the future today. Siddhartha Upadhyay and Anand Mahesh Talari envisioned this brand to work closely with clients to provide them with strategic counsel to craft compelling stories and help deliver them through the most relevant channels.

Hiccups on the Way and Progress
The challenges that Mavcomm Consulting faced are the same that any bootstrapped young companies face. Internally it has been about attracting and retaining the right talent. This is an industry with a very high churn rate and they have also faced the same. Externally the company has gone through two periods of recession and slowdown which has been a challenge in its growth phase.
With a track record of successful delivery for clients over thirteen years, Mavcomm group is currently poised to achieve fast growth and be amongst the top companies in the sector. With its current portfolio of services, the company has gained a very strong understanding of messaging and how it is the most critical component of communications across not only reputation management but also brand image.
Secret Behind the Success

The founders realized the tactical importance of public relations and realized early on prospective changes in the form of emergence of digital media and the emergence of social media and today they sit victorious with their assessments and continue to study in which direction the industry is moving.
“Public relations follow after the innovation and product development takes place at least in the minds of the owners of the brand and the principles of the brand. Our job is to be future-ready with the relevant communication which gives us a lot of insight into what and what not of the product communications, media habits of the readers and the ongoing trends”, states Anand Mahesh.
Motivating Creativity and Innovation in the Workspace
