Foundation Day Lecture 2022
Managing the mind, time, expectations, emotions, communication, and values is the true essence of human values and success in life, thus said Prof J.M. Subramanya, Former Director, SDMIMD, during the SDMIMD Foundation Day Lecture held on Saturday, September 24, 2022, at SDMIMD campus, Mysore.

Prof Subramanya speaking on the corporate culture and work-life, said 'duty with a good thought, good mind, the good heart, will always yield good results. The duty and responsibilities have to be performed with passion. Further, he said, God has blessed us with relationships in our lives and has left us the choice to choose friends, which we must exercise with due diligence. Wealth is a must in life, but how we earn, how it is spent and what portion we give back to society matters a lot.

Speaking on the teaching-learning in the current scenario, he shared several anecdotes and his learnings with the concept of Vishaya (the Content), Vinaya (the humility), Vismaya (the pleasant surprise), and Vaikari (the art of presenting). 
The speaker gave the young managers food for thought and presented the cycle of learning - observe, experience, listen and read - from the famous Shri Someshwara Shathaka. 
Earlier, Dr N.R. Parasuraman, Director, SDMIMD, addressed the gathering highlighting the day's importance and providing an opportunity to learn from the institution builders and eminent personalities. Dr S.N. Prasad, Deputy Director, SDMIMD, introduced and welcomed the speaker. Dr M.R. Suresh, Professor of Marketing, SDMIMD, presented the vote of thanks. 
Guests, faculty members, alumni, staff, and the students on campus were present during the function.

Life and Career in Consulting - Prof. Rangan Mohan
On 15th September 2022, Consulate- SDMIMD’s Consulting Club organized an invited talk by Mr Rangan Mohan, Owner of Rangan Mohan Associates, on the topic Life and Career in Consulting on September 15, 2022.

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.

Speaking on receiving the award, Mr Ravi Shankar said, 'Privileged and Honoured, to be the first recipient of the award and overwhelmed, to be 'the chosen one', among 27 batches that have passed out of our renowned MBA Institution. Words fail me because it is easy to be recognized and rewarded by 'strangers'! But, to win the respect of those who know you very well in your alma mater feels very special.
