Mr Mohan, with nearly 40 years of experience in the industry and executive coach blended with being a CEO for two of India's well-known listed IT companies, educated the students about the topic. Mr Mohan said 'Consultancy is more about what customer needs. Consultants’ job is to ask the right questions and give their service without being hung up on them being followed.' 
 
Further, Mr Mohan suggested using the 5Ws and 1H models of questioning and the contrarian questioning model. A consultant should simplify things so as not to confuse the clients and leave too many thoughts. He recommends leaving them with 3-4 reviews at max, which can be the key takeaways. Mr Mohan suggested aspiring consultants be comfortable with the unknown and be reasonably good at networking. 
 
The talk was interactive, and the students were full of enthusiasm and inquisitiveness. The session gave the students a clear picture of consulting careers.

Addressing students on ‘Building your brand on the world stage' on Wednesday, July 13, 2022.

We have a lot of good core values, the ecosystem has grown and we can pass them on to the west. People are looking at different things; imitating the west will not make us successful as people are looking at different things.  Stand on your roots which are very important, please do not lose them if you lose them your identity is lost, you are Indian, and be proud of our core values'.
 
While speaking on competence, Harsha said Competence is more about not only knowing subsystems in-depth but it’s also knowing about the entire system and how it works. Hence I would like to stress not only concentrate on subsystems but look into the overall system which is very important today when technology is evolving. He also spoke on passion, the importance of planning and timeliness, and values & culture. While delivering talks on values and culture he called upon students to focus on long-term gains instead of short-term gains and build a very good professional network which is a pillar of success and which is also easy to get many things.
