An excellent initiave has been taken by Non Residential Tripuraites, ofcourse the tribe entails the Non Residential Indians as well, for harnessing the latent talent available in the state. Geo-political barriers did not deter Tripuraites to rise in the national and international platforms be it the silicon valley or the electronic city. This brain drain although a positive one for the individual concerned, has a negative fallout for the state in particular especially when it is faced with challenges owing to its geographical constraint.The determination, perseverance and zeal of all Tripuraites makes them stand out wherever they go,whatever they do. I have decided to contribute in my own small way by imparting management training, soft skills acumen, management consultancy and career counselling.If you would like to join me for this novel initiative which would provide you satisfaction to the core, come join the forum and be a part of the most vibrant and happening state.If you are a non-tripuraite, this experience would provide you eye opening facts, figures and experiences which I am sure was hitherto burried deep beneath the media glare drawn by other developed state of India.
This example is going to be one of its kind and my fellow friends involved in the initiave representing estemmed fields and organizations hail from all across the globe. They are all on the same page................and that is why all of us in unison Dream of a Developed Tripura...................

Management Training needs in the GCC region

My experience while working with the Dubai based Management Training,Consultancy and Knowledge Transfer giant, especially during the last three visits of UAE has been that this region undoubtedly has tremendous business potential. Its already a proven fact and I should not be awarded with any rewards/awards for the same.However, my management training and management consultancy experiences along with the understanding I had about the region made me realize that this area definitely needs management approach-be it for learning or for implementing on the GLOCAL model rather than a purely GLOBAL one.When I say GLOCAL, I mean to say that all trainees should understand their local needs and align the same with the global platforms so as to make the maximum out of the inherent potential available in the region along with the boom in technology. Local case studies on successful Arab world companies touching upon their success stories and failures would go a long way in making all existing as well as prospective manager, entrepreneur, practising managers and even students and researchers understand and implement strategies commensurate with their exact needs. The training delivery techniques be it management ot soft skills training also has to be tailor made for the GCC region.
I have understood how it should be done and on the basis of my past experience, I can safely say that I can do it.........................
Kudos to UAE and the GCC region for the potential you generated only from SAND and SEA

MANAGEMENT learning from UAE visit

There are lot of learnings which I have imbibed from the three visits to the United Arab Emirates. They can very well be customized for a country like India, however what I admired here in UAE is their knack towards discipline in everything they do, whether it is managing self, managing vehicles or even managing business.Experts and localities say that it's because of the local rules that people are bound to abide by discipline in whatever they do;if thats the case then what is stopping a country like India to bring in such rules which can very well change the aspect of management, be it traffic, self or business.As they say, if you are not willing voluntarily, then someone has to make it mandatory and it can only be the government and noone else.

All Three Dubai Experiences------Management Learning

I am in my third visit to Dubai, UAE and this time around I am getting first hand exposure of strategic marketing planning whereby an organization is trying to launch internationally accredited training offerings or solutions in the arab world. The difference in marketing dynamics is clearly evident when one compares with the subcontinental market in terms of positioning, pricing, promotional offers, advertising etc. It was an eye opener for me to know understand all these aspects of marketing management in context to the Arab world.

The second Dubai visit was a first hand experience in corporate restructuring.

The first Dubai visit was more on mission and vision finalization of a company which was metamorphosing from being local to global.

However, I need to admit the go getting attitude of the management of the company, which is enabling the company to reach for the stars.
