Interaction with Shiv Shivakumar Sir , Group Exec. President- Corporate Strategy & BD – Aditya Birla Group

Fan Boy Moment: When Shiv Shivakumar sir ( Group Exec. President- Corporate Strategy & Business Development – Aditya Birla Group) reverts to your questions on his views on automation of front end sales and lack of EQ making automation less effective in sales-related roles.

I have been following sir since my days at Indian Institute of Foreign Trade where he delivered a guest lecture on Branding and shared his approach to handling crises. He gave away top-end Nokia Phones for answering questions. The best part was that he himself dropped the prized phone to winners the very next day.

His presentations have always been simple yet very effective. They leave an indelible mark in your mind.

His evolution and changes based leadership approach to learning and unlearning faster, focusing on what we are going to do next instead of getting stuck in past laurels, power of personal connect, getting comfortable with failures and belief that no AI can substitute a human judgment have been the key takeaways from the session.

Thank you, sir, and AIMA for giving this wonderful opportunity to engage with the best in the business and gain invaluable insights to help ” Learn”, “Unlearn” & ” Grow “
