There are three qualities that advertising greats have in common. The first quality is a deep interest in the way life functions. The second is a soul-deep honesty, which allows for detached observation of what motivates people. The third is really an outcome of the first two but still requires a rare talent. I am speaking of the ability to connect the dots between market trends, a business situation and the needs of consumers.
Andy (Anand Halve) has all the above qualities… plus two more.
Andy is a rare breed in the profession of advertising and marketing (and in life, for that matter) because he approaches his work, clients, colleagues and life with humility. It is this quality, over and above everything else, which undoubtedly makes Andy a very likeable person and a pleasure to work with.
Knowledge, intelligence and talent when combined with humility and likeability results in harnessing people around an idea and making it work. That’s Anand Halve for you. A Rainmaker, if I ever knew one.
