The Media360Asia summit has given us an ideal platform to do this, and we are delighted that GroupM have agreed to be the headline sponsor. We therefore encourage the media industry to step up, dig deep and help support Mother’s Choice.”

I am sure this inaugural dinner will grow into an industry fixture and change many lives for many years to come.”
