The Champions Tour this year is easily becoming the most unique series of events with its disruptive style of presenting awards. The fifth day of the tour, hosted by IPSOS, saw winners Hassan Alsagoff (Grab) and Nik Tasha Nik Kamaruddin (Sunway Group) receiving their awards.

The Champions Tour for the Malaysian CMO Awards 2021 has been a stellar example of hosting events with strict SOP’s in place whilst ensuring relaxed networking sessions and presenting awards.

Before handing over the awards, Kiranjit Singh, the ASEAN Regional Head of IPSOS said in his welcome speech, “At Ipsos, we work closely with CMOs. We know very well the past year posed many challenges. The Malaysian CMO awards are a perfect way to celebrate and recognize the pivotal role that CMOs have had.”

“We are proud to support Marketing Magazine for the Malaysian CMO Awards’ Champions Tour. It was the first-of-its-kind and truly a great avenue for CMOs to be seen and heard—it was an intimate yet safe event and allowed for better networking in a relaxed manner. On behalf of the IPSOS team, a big thank you to MARKETING Magazine and congratulations to all the winners!”
