Prakash Iyer- MD, Kimberly Clark @ SOM

Mr. Prakash Iyer, MD of Kimberly Clark lever Limited gave his session on "The Habit of winning". He shared his ideas through stories which he said is the best way, as it would linger in our memory for a longer time. While he spoke about his career, he mentioned that he started off with Hindustan Unilever limited. During those days, Mr. Iyer had the opportunity to work with end dealers and consumers which he believes gave him a chance to understand their point of view. He quoted many examples both from his own personal experience and from other’s experience to illustrate the characteristics which can be found in general, in successful people.

Further, he gave the example of the experience of flying a kite to convey that the most difficult part of it is its beginning phase. He compared it with life saying that even in life, it is difficult to start something. He took the example of Sachin Tendulkar to explain the drive and the motivation a person needs to achieve success in his life. He also mentioned the example of Karoly Takacs, a Hungarian Olympic shooter, who in spite of having lost his shooting arm to an accident won two Olympic gold medals after training with his other arm. He spoke about the need to be quick in taking smart actions when needed. He did this by mentioning a young employee of Pepsi who placed a witty hoarding to promote Pepsi on his own. 

Mr. Iyer emphasized the importance of staying focused and asked us to choose a goal and follow it with all our heart rather than being unfocused and not being able to make progress in any of our ventures. He talked about Tensing Norgay and Edmund Hillary, who were the first to climb Mount Everest. He listed out characteristics of theirs, like perseverance, trust, confidence to name a few, which he believes that everyone who wishes to succeed should possess.  He also pointed out one of the most common attribute that can be found among people is a lack of action. He explained that while most of us decide to do a lot of things on a daily basis, we fail to put that thought into action. He stressed the importance of converting our decisions into action.

The session ended with the students asking questions to clear their doubts regarding the attitude that is required to approach their life and to win in it. Later, Mr. Prakash Iyer gave signed copies of his book, “The Habit of Winning“, to eager students.

  4. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.
    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me. I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.
    My Experience I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very
    different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!
