Convocation 2017

I just attended my convocation for my Ph.D. degree at BITS Pilani, Pilani campus on the 23rd July, 2017.

Seems so subliminal, working for over five years for this moment, and then it seems so simple and non-consequential!

Thank you once again, to all those who believed in me,  I could not have done it without your support…

My articles in Business World (BW)

Three articles (!) published in Business World.

The first is on how family businesses need to stay relevant especially in todays fast changing environments, which are threatening the erstwhile stable businesses. I have taken the example of how some companies have coped with this.

The second is on family members stepping down in favour of professionals and how this would help companies grow, inspired by the recent activities in Asian Paints.

The third article discusses how to raise the next generation in business families.

 

Global Family Business Social Media Influencers

Just found out that I had been ranked 30 in the Family Business Influencers Global Power List .  This list is described as ” Family Business Social Media TOP 100. Recognising the most powerful family business influencers on social media around the world.”

The webpage also states:

Family Business United champions the family business sector identifying the people/organisations that are making the most family business noise on social media.

Social media is here to stay and an integral part of the way businesses engage, seek knowledge, build brands and communicate.  The Family Business Influencers Global Power List uses social media activity to create a league table of those with the greatest presence/influence and is updated weekly.”
