Disha
I supervise the creative team at MilesWeb. I lead my teammates in building social media strategies, drafting newsletters, writing creative blogs, creating videos, etc. I make sure to get every member to use their skills and talents to their best and motivate them to find what is more to them. My concern also lies in executing concepts, guidelines and strategies in various creative projects and directing them towards completion.
