I have found Prakash to be one of the most inspiring people I met in a long time. His work, his thoughts and ideas, his persona, his enthusiasm for life, learning and mentoring, the success he has achieved in the corporate world and the energy he exudes are simply astonishing and marvellous, and yet he is so refreshingly down to earth, humble and charming!

Right from the front line manager to the CEO, all get paid to develop the people they work with, this task cannot and must not be left to HR alone. The leader has to grow his core. He has to grow his people. He must focus on his people more than anything, yes, even more than money.

For any retailer, whether you’re web-based or bricks and mortar, knowing how many people are walking into your store or are browsing your website is significant.

How many times have you delayed critical assignments because you were flooded with non-critical tasks which somehow seemed “urgent”? By the time you got your mailbox under control you had exhausted yourself and needed a break. Only to come back after a break and deal with the next batch of mails.
