Jitender Dabas, Chief Strategy Officer, McCann Worldgroup India, said, “Does my creativity help me solve your problem in ways that haven’t been thought before to drive results? Meaningful effectiveness is an output of relentless pursuit of defining the right problem and then arriving at strategic & creative solutions that are borne out a deeper understanding of culture and context – things we are passionate about at McCann India.

I am especially proud of a lot of campaigns that have been effective in driving behavior change to drive significant market results - whether it be in hygiene & health, food & beverage or digital payments/e-commerce. That’s what has propelled McCann Worldgroup to the be the No.1 at Effectiveness rankings consecutively in India for last two years and now globally. Yes it feels extremely special to be the No.1 office in the World.”

Ogilvy Mumbai fared second at creative rankings with its campaign Healthy hands chalk sticks, for Savlon ranked #2 among most effective marketing campaigns around the world.

The number one most effective campaign in the world according to Warc Effective 100 is 'Let’s make viral products instead' for Carvaan created by The Womb, a radio pre-loaded with nostalgic music.

Vikram Mehra – CEO, Saregama India, had this to say on the recognition, “The commercial and critical success of Carvaan is a testament to our belief that the key to innovation is listening to our customers. We are proud to have The Womb as our strategic partners in this successful journey.”
An excited Navin Talreja and Kawal Shoor, Co- Founding Partners, The Womb, said, “We took on an almost terminal business challenge in the first year of starting our agency. We helped the client meet it, and beat it with a product innovation, that too for an innovation-phobic elderly audience! This has been such a once-in-a-lifetime experience. What more can we ask for after this recognition, except that we must now move on…to the next big thing!”

Unilever is the top-ranked advertiser and Coca-Cola the top-ranked brand.
