Representing India at the Global Speakers Summit in New Zealand

Proud to lead the Indian delegation to New Zealand for the Global Speakers Summit 2018. This is the World’s largest gathering of professional speakers and a place where some of the World’s best speakers get together to learn from each other.

If you are a professional speaker and want to join us for this 4 day event, please let me know.

The GSS team wants to encourage our fledgling Professional Speakers Association of India (PSAI) chapter by giving us an early bird price offer. Please let me know if you are interested. Just like the delegation to the Asian convention in Singapore this year, let’s have a super strong team for the Global Speakers Summit in New Zealand in Feb 2018.

Ajay Ratnam and Professional Speaking

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.

Wishing the Best for InterviewDesk on its Launch.

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.
