  • number one

    THERE’S A BRAINSTORM IN MY TEACUP.

      Colour us strange. But, we love ourselves a good brainstorm. No, really, we do. And when we emerge from one, many hours and cups of coffee later, we come out with just the PR advice you and your brand need.
  • number Two

    WHAT’S THE BUZZ WORD?

      On an average day at work, we’re guzzling too much coffee, reading too many emails and making too many calls. But, we always keep one bespectacled eye on the media. And think, think, think about how we can use our many media relations to make your brand seen and heard by the right guys.
  • number Three

    WHAT’S THE OCCASION?

      We don’t spend all our time at our computers (it’s not good for the eyes, we’ve been told). So, whether you want to launch a product, hold a media event or press conference, inaugurate a store or kick off a shopping event, we roll up our sleeves and get it done.
  • number Four

    WE LOVE US A GOOD BRIEF.

      There’s nothing we can’t do when we put our brains and our computers together. We’ll hack at our trusty keyboards and rack our noggins for hours on end until we get your stationery branding, brochures, catalogues, promotional collaterals and brand identity just right.
  • number Five

    #TRENDING

      When we aren’t racking our brains thinking about strategy, we’re racking them thinking about social media. No, not about how to fit that funny tweet we thought of in the morning into 140 characters. But about making sure your brand makes all the good moves in the big, bad world of social media.
  • number Six

    TALENT AHOY !

     Talent can be hard to find, especially when you’ve gone through thousands of audition tapes. But, sometimes, we get lucky. And when we do, we spend (some would say inordinate) hours working; making sure the world sees what we do. And when your brand needs a little help in the talent department, we get to work and find what you want. Even fire blowers.
  • number Seven

    1 + 1 = 5

      That’s not bad math (don’t worry; we paid attention in class). That’s great strategy. At work, we’re always trying to find cool new ways to bring two brands together, so they can gain name, experience and expertise from each other.

Meet Our Members
  • Shemaila Khan

    Shemaila Khan is our Founder and Director,
    so she means business. This jet setter loves all the finest things in life, but is also right at home with her latest TV Shows and a nice big plate of the spiciest food available. To say she enjoys meeting new people and being social is an understatement - it's her USP.

    SanJana PaThania

    sanJana PaThania, Director
    Kicks ass. Full stop. Workaholic and luxury-junkie, she loves Cheese, Chocolate and Ryan Gosling in equal measure. The only person who surpasses all these things is Andy Warhol aka God. She might forgive your ignorance of pop culture trivia (covering the vast expanse between The Beatles and Breaking Bad) just as long as you don't claim to know more about it than her. Though she'll be nice enough to let it go if you're in the wrong. Don't be fooled by how magnanimous she can be; try and steal her bacon and there'll be a fight (she can surprisingly consume enough for a small country). We love her anyway.

  • Monica Sethi

    Monica Sethi is our Senior Executive, Public Relations.
    She's pretty much always on the move - be it her unstoppable inner fitness freak (she- treks- a lot), her love for dancing (jazz, no less) or travelling to places. She loves spending time with her close friends and family.

    Rohini Kumari

    Rohini Kumari is our Executive,
    Public Relations.

    The office jester, she loves to make people laugh so hard, they cry. She also likes to dance - anywhere - and we mean anywhere (She once actually managed to perform a little jig on London Thumkda at work). So it should come as no surprise that she is also our in-house Bollywood aficionado. When she's not watching a Disney movie or bouncing around office, you'll find her chilling with her pet tortoise, Speedy and Pedro.

  • Girinandini Singh

    Girinandini Singh is our Executive,
    Public Relations.

    The newest member of the Speakeasy team. She enjoys reading a good book and loves spending time with her grandmothers. ‘Giri’ as she is fondly called is a complete foodie and loves all things Italian. She’s a free spirit and often calls herself an indigo child.
