A video dedicated to NSM

Dear All


As we all know that NSM is just around the corner and most of us will be going to Goa to be a part of it. I have a suggestion that why not we utilize the video footage and the photographs that we capture in Goa, to create a small video film (Or a music video with effects and background score). The video can serve as a memoir for the annual event. I have shot and edited some short films during my college days and will be happy to provide my assistance on this.


Do provide your valuable suggestions and feedback for this.

A Year at Pearson

Yesterday was my first anniversary at Pearson, and I am not sure how my report card should read.


2008 was the most fun I have had in my working life, and believe me, I have enjoyed most of my career up to here. It has also been the most intense work I have done so far, and it’s a company where I can see myself building a career. I read somewhere that the average lifespan of a CEO today is about 18 months, so that may be presumptuous but I hope that’s what happens.


On the performance front, it’s been a pretty good year, as all of you know. I do think that we have removed some of the kinks in the organisation structure, and that we now have a team that is more cohesive than before. I think we are also shedding some of the petty beauracracy that bogged us down, and I hope this will allow us to be more nimble and market focused. I also hope we are moving to a more open culture, but one which is still performance based. So, there are some good things achieved, or partly achieved.


But when I look at my notes from the early weeks in the company, there are so many areas where I feel we have not made as much progress as we could have, so I think maybe it’s a reasonable start, but there’s still so much to do!


If you have ideas that you think should be on my agenda, or comments on what I may have done well or badly, please email me. Or just write and say, Happy Anniversary!
