As part of IIM Indore EPGP iKON Guest Lecture Series 2017-18, Mr. Ramki Subramanian, Head, Business Development-Reliance Industries, visited the Institute on December 2, 2017. A techno-expert in chemicals, Mr. Subramanian shared insights on his career and the many successes and failures he endeavoured that helped him develop a deep perspective on new product development, entrepreneurship, work culture diversity and people management.
Mr. Subramanian doled out some life lessons on dealing with work failures which included –
- Look for obvious signs,
- Don’t let position blind you,
- Know when to stop; and
- Have close attention to detail.
He also introduced to the participants a few upcoming and non-conventional uses of ‘concept products’ and their placement in markets. Mr. Subramanian’s candid lessons from his stint as an entrepreneur were insightful, especially for the budding entrepreneurs. His effortless responses to the curious minds left the crowd overwhelmed.
