Sept 6th: A set back for my HCL was given by IPE to us ‘Acer – Travelmate’ Right now, feeling it – tweeting from my new lappy. Though its not a good conf, it just made my day.
And we really met the finest minds. Of them, Sriram Bharatam was the one who inspired us a lot! I still can’t believe it – he is an alumni of IPE!
(some excerpts :: to be updated shortly.. ) Meantime here is my prize winning blog: http://biztech.me – Thnx a lot ‘my3’.,
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.
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

Welcome to BizTech!
I would lyk to look back to the day when I tapped the World of Future Managers ..
June 22nd :: The day when I stepped into my B-School as a ‘future manager’. I got to see one of the best on the dias addressing us. Interesting to see IPE Alumni (Rana, if I remember it ryt) as face of entire TCS campus pulse. Trying to follow many principles addressed by Mr.Srikanth Surampudi, TCS HR Head. One among them is ‘Integrity: will we stop our vehicle at 12am for red signal?’ Others being attitude, commitment etc., Trying to “Live the values”
The first week at IPE has been quite interesting. I admired at the diversity of my class : Few people from HR, Business Development, Hotel mgmt and from different backgrounds say: Pharma, Engineering, Bio-tech, Commerce, Hospitality, Event mgmt etc., with max expy – 5yrs.
Now I’m damn sure that I am working with experts for maximum business success !
From then, things rolled out very fast: Freshers Day (those 3 days were really memorable), sports day, interactions with seniors, bulk of assignments.. B-Plans, Team tasks as a part of them really made us empowering. Now, the bell has rung for 9 samathi’s (an intra college competition) which, I should say is a unique opportunity for all juniors to participate and get max exposure to the corporate world.
