Speaking at the ceremony, Group Publisher of Marketing World Magazine and Chief Executive Officer of Instinct Wave, Akin Naphtal, said gone are the days when a Lifetime Achievement Awardee must necessarily be on the “Old Side”.
“Being youthful does not mean you can’t be an icon or a road mapper in an industry. Meaningful and impactful contributions are the qualities that matters most,” he said.
