Professors aren’t the only ones who shape minds in the classroom. Guest lecturers also play an important role in delivering knowledge and inspiration.
On December 11, Mr. Nimesh Mehta, an alumnus of 2002 batch and author of Amazon international bestseller “Sales Booster” visited his alma mater after getting invited to give a guest lecture.
The guest lecture, organized by the Alumni Committee gave students unique insights about selling, goal setting and investment.
Mr. Mehta, Director & Head of sales & products at ASK Investment Managers Ltd. has more than 18 years of work experience in Sales and distribution, products, strategy and customer services. Rightly so, his lecture revolved around the selling skills and the ways to acquire them. He also elaborated on India’s golden decade. He stated that India is at a vantage point of a golden decade ahead of enormous value creation in Indian equity markets. Many major economic structural changes and reforms have occurred over last few years like Demonetization, GST which would help in cleansing individual behaviour and would eventually mend societal and business behaviour. He went on saying that on digitization front; ubiquitous cell phones, easy access to internet represents a powerful opportunity for India to digitally leapfrog. “Compounding is the eighth wonder of the world” he said, adding that now is the high time for students to start investing in equities.
Further down the lecture, he told the importance of goal setting & how it can bring fantastic results. Understanding the importance of goal setting and knowing how to set goals for yourself is crucial to accomplishing great things in your life, he added. To make the lecture more interesting, he made students do a little exercise wherein they had to write their desires on a piece of paper & think on ways to achieve them. “There are no unrealistic goals, only unrealistic timelines”, he added.
It was an inspiring lecture that was highly appreciated by the students, motivating them to strive for their future career.
