Tell us a bit more about your career?
Ok so so I have a career journey of more than 25 years prior to kti. So my journey started way back when I graduated from Sardar Patel College of Engineering as the electrical engineer as a qualified engineer which was placed immediately because you get a easy job and during those time engineering used to be very good big degree. Write that 2 from a government college so in Mumbai there were only two main government colleges one is SPC and second is VGTI. And I was lucky to get into SPC as my passion was electrical which I got into again my passion was damn to get into very electrical engineering work when I took up the engineering as an assignment. So I work in the mufatlal as my first job but within joining a year I understood that this is not my cup of tea and my cup of tea price in the more in the business aspect. So there we are at one more back to another engineering industry which is called Bharat Bijlee Limited. I joined in the elevator division in the sales management and there where my career started from 1992. From 1992 till 2017 now which is good 24 career I have worked in various organisation and likely to work with very great people as my bosses in those work organisations with companies like Bharat Bijlee, otC Elevators, juice Telecom, tata Teleservices Limited and United Technologies Corporation where my last assignment was there in the Asia Pacific office as area director for managing their elevator business operating from Shanghai.
So what is the surprise factor about being an entrepreneur?
So I was mentioning about the vUCA element right so never the less you are on the top as the c e o and director of the company any company but with this vuca which comes your way every now and then. The surprise which I get is you almost control nothing in your business that is the first surprise which definitely I have II surprise which Hai have his you have to fail to succeed and one has to be courageous and not get afraid of failing in the business that they takes. It has surprised me because this franchise definitely was a surprise that it was so 21.47 because I come from a strong as a Retail Management and you know channel management expertise but in education industry it definitely surprised me because the kind of skill set we as a team would have executed that he is a partner and he is not one of your reporting team member so the treatment that you need to give to the partner is the different than you give to a typical a manager and the team so that’s what surprise me in my rule here. That because of use you are not in control of anything you have to be very alert and whatever you want to create process and you know management and the reviews and oRS and everything but at the end of the day you need to realise this as a reality that somebody else control those parameters of vuCA and second is yes I mean the failure is a way of your life it may not be repeated but even once failure people normally get scared and they don’t get into risk taking as a attitude again so you have to keep taking the rest surprises will get failed but that’s fine as far as business like floater On The Water right you keep floating you cannot get sunk so as far as your are floating keep taking risk and you have to float all the time on the wall does the success story of his business.
When I think left Behind is my favourite quote that is something and that is I have liked my life on right from 1990 to the only purpose of any business is to create customers and written them it is there in across all my speeches where ever I go where ever I speak where ever I interact my board always careers that has only as a liner on the top. It is the thethe purpose of any business to create customers and ensure you return them in your network then you are a successful Businessman whichever business you want to choose.
