Another frontier in life…

25 02 2011

I have conquered another frontier in life 🙂 On the eve of 22nd Feb, I got married to my love – A and life’s entered into the next level.

Just read somewhere,
“A happy man marries the girl he loves; a happier man loves the girl he marries.” .. I follow both 🙂

Now… that’s Account management

14 10 2009

The top marketing director of Nescafe manages to arrange a meeting with the Pope at the Vatican.

After receiving the papal blessing, the Nescafe official whispers, ‘Your Eminence, I have some business to discuss. We at Nescafe have an offer for you. Nescafe is prepared to donate $100 million to the church. If you change the Lord’s Prayer from ‘Give us this day our daily bread’ to ‘Give us this day our daily coffee’.” The Pope looks outraged and thunders, “That is impossible. The Prayer is the word of the Lord, It must not be changed.” Well,” says the Nescafe man somewhat chastened, “We anticipated your reluctance. For this reason, and the importance of the Lord’s Prayer to all Catholics, we will increase our offer to $300 million. All we require is that you change the Lord’s Prayer from ‘Give us this day our daily bread’ to ‘Give us this day our daily coffee’.” Again, even more sternly, the Pope replies, “That, my son is impossible. For the prayer is the word of the Lord and it must not be changed.” Finally, the Nescafe director says, “Your Holiness, we at Nescafe respect your adherence to your faith, we realize that tradition is essential to your beliefs, we fully understand the importance of the word of the Lord……… ……..but we do have one final offer. Please discuss it with your cardinals. We will donate $500 million to the great Catholic church if you would only change the Lord’s Prayer from ‘Give us this day our daily bread’ to ‘Give us this day our daily coffee’. Please, please consider it.” And he leaves.

The next day the Pope convenes the College of Cardinals. “There is some good news,” he announces, “and some bad news ……. The good news is, he continues to a hushed assembly, ‘ that the Church will get $ 500 million.” “And what is the bad news, your Holiness?” asks a Cardinal. “Sadly” says the Pope, We would have to lose the Britannia Account !!!!!!

Change…

6 10 2009

Work wise, it looks like a busy October ahead. Festivals have already begun and the gifting season is in full flow! Big Business with bigger targets that’s how I would define my work in October. As a product man, this also implies that I have a busy October ahead with some stiff targets both for the supply and sales ends. I am truly enjoying being sandwiched 😉

The best part about being a product manager is I am always caught at the wrong side of the table. In my discussions with the sales team, I am THE supply side man. With the suppliers, I am THE sales man. With the marketing team, I am THE product man. And the real challenge is to sound like I understand the other side’s concerns and still put my point in a firm manner. While this is definitely challenging, it also requires me to constantly change as per the changing audience.

On the personal front too, there’s a lot changing .. While, the last couple of months took me to unlit dark corners, (this month) the shinning metal is ready to show its flame this month. My views, my interests, my opinions, perspectives and even my meal times 😉 … each of it is changing!

Friends, Change is on its way and I am all set to welcome change.
