Vidur Bhatia, Digital Marketer

Drawing my bout of inspiration from a dictum by Reggie Leach, “Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire”, since childhood I strived for bigger challenges in life. My hitherto individual, academic and professional success singularly rests on one fundamental principle, self-worth. Instituting a positive change and constant improvement in my work, I consistently aim to become better at what I do. To transform challenges of today into opportunities of tomorrow, an MBA is essential. As a young professional and MBA candidate at Pace University, New York with 4 years of experience in the digital marketing industry, I focus on delivering impeccable service & performance. Well versed with online media and driven by passion for marketing & advertising I am motivated to overcome challenges thrown at me.
