How does it feel to be a part of one of the early batches at FIIB?
When one graduates from one of the first batches of an institute, he carries with himself the responsibility of becoming a role model. This responsibility requires and demands an exemplary demonstration of high standards of responsibility and leadership. This is challenging but motivating. It is like leading the troops from the front who are following you with the belief in you and following your footsteps.

16 years into the industry, how did the learnings' at FIIB help you go a long way?
I entered FIIB at a 'conception stage' which means without any previous job experience. Hence, I was keen to discover individual strengths, weaknesses and areas of personal interest related to business management, without any bias of a past job experience in the industry. This journey could be embarked upon only under the guidance and expertise of an experienced faculty which I got at FIIB. The balanced learning curve over the two years of school subsequently became a part and parcel of my daily thought and action process during all business activities. In today’s business world it cannot be argued that as a manager and even more as an entrepreneur one needs to have a reasonable knowledge related to all the areas of management. For me FIIB laid the foundation of it and this journey continues.

After working, you went on to start your own venture in Brazil. What influenced your decision to leave service and become an entrepreneur?
In some sense all employees are entrepreneurs at jobs. Those organizations where employees have a higher sense of belongingness do far better than those without, but beyond a certain point, being an employee has its limitations which could be administrative, financial, regional etc. In my case, the business in Brazil was nurtured by me right from its infancy and both of us matured together. Hence, moving from one boat to another was merely a question of time and choice.

What personal traits and professional qualities have helped you in your career?
It is important to strike a balance between personal traits and professional qualities required by a particular job, as each area demands a certain set of skills. It goes without saying that one should continue improving those qualities which have more relevance to that particular job. Some qualities which function in any area of life are determination, integrity, hard work, objectivity, team work, discipline and a good sense of humor.

FIIB honored you with two titles during the FIIB Alumni Awards Night. What do you have to say about these initiatives at FIIB?
More than the event the success of it was in the fact that it brought all of us together and facilitated networking by providing us a platform to connect better in future. Such initiatives are highly fruitful for the overall benefit of both FIIB and its brand ambassadors (alumni). In my opinion large scale events like awards and sports meet should take place on an annual basis and the alumni community should be encouraged to suggest and ideate.
