A lecture I recently delivered last year, at the New Delhi Institute of Management. While interacting with students, I cherished the memories of my own days as an MBA student. I could relate to the vigour and excitement of students on day one. I shared various learning from my Corporate journey of more than a decade with students. I told the students that India is a land of opportunities, it is no doubt one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Having said that in current scenario, employment is not a problem but employability is.
I emphasised , that the students need to gain and develop their employability skills in the next two years and the should be the primary focus. I gave examples of various leaders Sam Walton, Richard Branson, Einstein, Satya Nadella, Nelson Mandela etc. and shared inspiring facts about them. Overall this was an inspiring experience
