This is the presentation done at AIM alumni meet 2006. I haven’t put enough words in it as I wanted to make it a participatory one. It last for almost 45 mins.
there was a mix opinion among the audience. I let you decide, What is your opinion?
This is a little stupid question, just put it to explain the need. You can also raise your opinion, Is branding required for AIM?
Here I have explained that their is always a positive side for everything. The biggest advantage for lesser known is the flexibility to adopt changes, to experiment, to innovate. This can help us take over the leading brands.
This is not the first time when we are thinking about it. Every batch did it but unfortunately it was not passed down the generation. We always worked as a batch but never as a organization. This was the biggest loophole of our existing system. I could recollect many who really did great work for AIM/NIMC branding. It is a right time to network the nodes through a proper network to cash the available knowledge to exercise the cumulative efforts.
To network and to provide the right platform for all AIM branding I introduced AIMAA. Also I mentioned that it is just one step towards the goal.
Then I let them fill the blanks, which everyone could easily. Also I explained that AIMAA desires to work at a strategic layer by providing right platforms over working at a tactical layer.
Then the vision
and then the missions
Some long term plans
The progress so far
Some shorter plans
The challenge for everyone and a call for leaders. “Fail and try but never fail to try” and “expect only .01% success rate” were few lines which always kept me motivated, which I shared with the crowd.
The smallest thing we all can do is to thank the two gentlemen who took the first step for us.
The policy that helped our company took better decisions, after every decision we keep asking ourselves, “will it take us to Nasdaq?”. I asked the student counsel to use the same policy to make better decisions.
Hoping that it helped the overall cause. On behalf of all AIMAA members I request your participation for your own sake. Enjoy.
