I missed my goal of blogging every day. By a long shot. A 11-day break. What do you do when this happens? Acknowledge the misstep. Don’t crib or sulk. Get right back up and restart again. That’s exactly what I’m doing. Here’s another streak.
Did you know Actor Ajay Ratnam who has acted in over 400 movies across 5 languages is a professional speaker? Spoke to him about the Professional Speakers Association of India and he was only too keen to join it.
Two of our cows at Vaksana Farms are pregnant. Unlike humans, where a pregnant mom is easily identifiable, cows don’t show a bulge. So, it’s a tad difficult to measure the delivery date. We are guessing at least one of the cows will deliver by this month end. There is a lot of excitement at home in anticipation of the new babies joining the family.
Today evening, I’m hosting and moderating the launch event of InterviewDesk, a marketplace which aims to be India’s largest community of interviewers. This is the entrepreneurial venture of Pichumani Durairaj, who comes with over 15 years of HR experience in companies such as Amazon and KLA Tencor.
It’s a fascinating experience to see the kind of planning and preparation that goes into the event. Multiple planning meets, conference calls, minute-by-minute scheduling, group updates over WhatsApp. This level of preparedness is a good indication of the attention to detail that will be invested in the new company.
Here’s wishing InterviewDesk and its team the very best.
