Mangaluru: Mangalore Alzheimer’s Association-MAA- had organized a brilliant “TALK on Business–Leadership, Strategy and Marketing–A World View” by Uday Kumar, Director, British Petroleum BP, Greater China, at AIMIT- Beeri. Fr Pradeep Sequeira, Administrator, AIMIT, honoured both the former students of St Aloysius College Uday Kumar and Er. Jerardin D’Souza.
Uday Kumar spoke on Business Core Values, the strategy of being honest in ones dealings and laid emphasis on safety. The TALK was received with great enthusiasm by the budding MBA students. After an hour of brilliant presentation by Uday Kumar, the Students interacted with varied questions for another hour.
He appreciated the quality of questions from the fully packed auditorium. ”My pitfall, if I could call it that, comes from the fact that I couldn’t recruit or train many women in the Sales field, as the women don’t want to venture much into the Oil sales field” said Uday Kumar, when asked of his pitfalls in an illustrious career.
”I felt small when two towering personalities entered my chamber, but they put me at ease at once, listening to Uday was truly overwhelming” said Fr Pradeep Sequiera
Er. Jerardin D’Souza urged all present to support MAA-Mangalore Alzheimer’s Association, and as a start to LIKE the MAA page on Facebook. ”Experience is the Teacher it gives the Test first and Lesson afterwards” here we have a personality who has both Lessons and Tests to share” and introduced dear friend and fellow St Aloysius Class mate Uday Kumar to the MBA students” said Jerardin.
Sumathi Achar, the student coordinator encouraged the students to participate in the career enhancing TALK. Dr Rowena Wright, Dean of AIMIT was proactive in assembling the students. The TALK was very useful, and the students had questions over flowing, which were answered with rare insight by Uday. Questions ranging from, Oil Spill, the falling Oil prices, the scope for women in Oil Industry, to the secrecy of Business practices in China and the alternate fuels taking over. A truly enlightening TALK session.
