What Did I Speak At Social Media Week 2014?



Thanks to Team Nokia, Social Media Week & RSquare consulting for giving me an opportunity to speak at SMW 2014, Bangalore on one of my favorite topics. I certainly consider this one of my significant achievements of my Social Media Career.

It was initially planned to be a panel discussion on 'The Future of Online Engagement, Content Marketing & Lead Generation' with Salar Bijli (Head of Sales at Trade Briefs) but it finally turned out to be two presentations of 30 Minutes each. I handled the 'Engagement & Content Marketing' part and Salar handled his favorite 'Lead Generation'. We are glad that we were able to address the audience's queries towards the end.

HCL Tech Takes ‘Social Recruiting’ To The Next Level In India With #CoolestInterviewEver

We’ve heard of tech companies using Social Media in multiple ways for their business benefits. However very few companies have used the medium to identify and recruit the potential employees, apart from using the same for background checks.
The maximum we’ve seen is an exclusive Facebook tab or a Facebook page for careers, where monotonous job openings are being posted with couple of feeds around the company’s work culture. Breaking all the silos being followed by tech biggies in the country, HCL Tech, India’s 4th largest software services firm has taken a revolutionary step in using ‘Twitter’ as a medium to find new talents for the company.
The objective of the campaign #CoolestInterviewEver is to shortlist candidates for ‘The coolest project ever’ under five categories – Ideapreneurship Evangelist, Big Data Guru, Hacker-in-chief, Digital Trotter & Womenspiration. The job descriptions of these profiles are available in the link here.

Stan Smith – An Unsung Hero



Stan Smith, Born. Dec 14, 1946 in Pasadena (Calif) was one of the greatest Davis Cup Competitors, former No.1 Tennis Player and two time Grand Slam title winner from America. He was one of the iconic sportsmen between late 1960s and early 1980s.

When Stan Smith was a kid, he wanted to become a ball boy but turned down because the organizers felt he was unskilled in handling things without realizing that kid would someday become a Tennis superstar.

Stan started getting recognized when he played his collegiate tennis at the University of Southern California, where he went on to win 1966 (Singles), 1967 & 1968 (Doubles) of National Collegiate Athletic Association championship titles.

A Beautiful Home With Asian Paints

While I haven’t thought about this topic before, this was an opportunity for me to think- What would my ideal space be? and How could I translate my ideas into reality? Here’s what I came up with:

Let the Light In
      This seems simple enough to say, but in our tightly packed cities, light especially natural light is a commodity like any other and efforts must be made in terms of design and planning to get the best light in your home. An excellent way to ensure that your home basks in the warmth of natural sunlight is to create large openings and windows that are larger than the regular- 2 by 4-common- grilled variety.

Social Media Week - NYC (Feb 17-21, 2014)

Folks, here's my entry to become the official reporter of Social Media Week, scheduled to be held in NewYork City from Feb 17-21, 2014. The official hashtag is #SMW14.


This is the first time, I've ever attempted on creating a 'Whiteboard animation video'. Please watch it and provide your critical feedback. 

Thank you Videoscribe for making my life easier. I never thought of building such a video for myself ever.

Thank you Social Media Week and Nokia for providing this opportunity.
