Recollecting ‘System Samathi @ IPE’

Posted on: September 27, 2010

Sept 20th, 2010 – Its not an exaggeration to address several students of IPE business school that day. This reminds me of the good olden days when I used to sit in audience chairs in the same college. I really enjoyed sharing my time with my juniors @ IPE as a chief guest that day. The auditorium was decorated with posters of CEO’s of top software cos. I was amazed to find mine among them. I am also happy to share the dais with Prof Sai Kumar sir who was my guru.

Here it is! Unlike poking about the theme of that day. I thought I will share how I became an Entrepreneur. I explained to fellow mates how I used to spend time at IPE even after classes ended. I shared that I generally used to share time at IPE canteen and grab information from different persons. I explained them how I got my first job and what I used to do at HCL. I explained them that everyone should be clear about the role they are willing to work for. If they are passionate about the role – the job is open. I shared what does a successful elevator pitch requires – my experience with Shiv Nadar, HCL.

Later, I explained the first e-commerce solution sold by me – an initiative Cause and effect for a few tears less! Then iridiumInteractive..

I explained students the essence of social media by asking ‘How many of them updated LinkedIn profile in the last few hours?’ and ‘Where is Anand Mahindra now?’ I also emphasized them how important it is to learn story telling – only key to live.

I requested each one of them to do the following:

1. Watch innovations @ TED (Its not a rocket science)

2. Start ventures on their own or work for Start-ups (what’s stopping you from ?)

3. Watch Steve Jobs at launch of any product

4. Keep an eye on Slide Share (As it has all corporate presentations)

5. Observe e-Social media on Youtube..

DNA of the interview = ‘Resume on Slide Share + Message on Twitter

Regards, Sriram Bharatam
