‘A good leader is a good manager first.’ This was the crux of the address delivered to the students of Sri Krishna Institutions, by Ram Subramaniam, Founder-Chief Executive Officer of Shiva Systems, USA, in an interactive session on emerging business models in social sharing.
He shared with his audience that his experience was his best teacher. He revealed that he started his business from the scratch, and that he owed a part of his business success to his management and administrative skills.
“Managing the people and the organization in the present times is the main focus of business leaders across the globe, since all the organizations have to face the crucial competitions that exist in the market. The organizations have to tactically sustain the customers. It is possible only by influencing the people,” Ram said.
He turned enthusiastic when he shared with the audience, “You can take me out of India, but you can’t take India out of me. I learned my norms, value, ethics, and culture from here. The culture followed here is spoken highly of around the world. Indians have more knowledge, and that is considered for various top level positions in the globe.”
Citing the examples of successful business models of corporate houses like Uber, Amazon, and Airbnb among others, Ram said that a majority of these businesses use cloud computing, which is the backbone of any Information technology (IT) business.
S. Malarvizhi, Chairperson and Managing Trustee of Sri Krishna Institutions, presided over the session. She advised the students to have a rolemodel and follow their footsteps.
