Surge2016 – What I remember after more than 1 month?

I had the opportunity to attend the Surge 2016 (way back in Feb) this year, and it was a great experience. The sheer energy, enthusiasm, people is amazing, not to mention the fantastic sessions and opportunity to network with a host of thought leaders, startups, VC’s, etc.

For those who don’t know what Surge is – here’s a quick note “SURGE is Web Summit’s first conference in India. In 5 years, Web Summit, held annually in Europe, has grown from 400 attendees to over 42,000 from more than 134 countries. It’s been called “the best technology conference on the planet”. 

I meant to do this post many days ago, but just didn’t do it. But now that I am doing a post – I thought I should write about what I really remember from the session – after so long! The key reason is that if I remember it even now, that means the message was important in my context.

So sharing below key points in random order:

* For any event of this scale – planning and preparation is key. I am told that the organizers start a year in advance!

* The next best thing I liked was the overall arrangement and number of volunteers to help attendees – all very polite and genuinely resourceful

* The music was truly catchy, and truly added to the vibrancy

* I loved the fact that every session was for about 20 min, and they mostly stuck to the time. So no rushing through any session, and that was GREAT!

* In the session from Mahesh Murthy (Founder of PinStorm), the below points stayed with me

  • Today is the time and space for extra-ordinary dominance in any industry ; No. 1 has 80%, No. 2 has 8% – no spot for No. 3. So as a startup / business, you have 2 choices – outspend or outthink
  • Product market fit is very important – no matter what you do
  • Word of Mouth – best marketing
  • Truly the age where an idea can change the world
  • Internet – 360 mn ; TV – 250 mn users. Internet is ahead of TV as a channel for content
  • Positoning matters – both within the company and in the market : Redbull – entertainment company whuch pulls out energy drinks
  • Your product is your best marketing
  • Truly the time when people who can use the Left + right brain will rise and shine

* In another session, the Foundation of any business was highlighted as:

  • Vision
  • Talent acquisition
  • Culture
  • Leadership

* Any business model should factor:

  • Product scalability
  • Market scalability

* A great initiative called CK12 (Started in 2007) provides free online learning material to schools, students and teachers. Has 30K students, and about 50X pageviews. Best part is that Teachers are part of the co-creation process for creating relevant content

  • Concept of Flexbooks – customizable textbooks based on students learning aptitude
  • Believe that e all learn differently
  • Early education has to be contextualized

* Globally, there are 3 mn professional mobile app developers. Wow!

* 700 mn – mobile audience in India ; Great untapped opportunity!

* Not to mention – my rendezvous with some so many uber-cool technology startups!

Jan – Mar 2016 | Highlights, Highs and More…

Ever since I became a mom, I attempt to do something new every year.. Sometimes it is about writing (blogging), sometimes reading, sometimes cooking, sometimes just experimenting with stuff…So in 2016, I decided to do few things :

1) Spend more time with family and friends
2) Be at atleast 1 event / month – industry, art, etc. 
3) Speak / Share my views @ atleast 1 event or forum / month, i.e, get on the stage
4) Experience new things – Things which I have not done for a long time to push myself out of the comfort zone

3 months down of 2016, and I’ve been successful. A quick round-up of the details are below, but more importantly the reason I am even writing about it is that my efforts of these 3 months made me realize that it is really about FOCUS.. What I mean is we are almost always running short of time. 6 months back if anyone had mentioned any of the above I’d laugh and say “No TIME”. But the reality is that when I set my mind on it, it just happened. We are all busy, especially if you are a working mom. But if you really want it, the time will find a way into your life. Just try it!

1) Spend more time with family and friends

* Have been instrumental in having a high school re-union after more than 2 decades : It was awesome to see how much everyone is still the same @ heart and yet how far we have all come; And there really can be no relationships like the ones you make with school friends

* Family re-unions : It was good fun to have 3 generations meet, interact and just be under the same roof. The energy, stories and humor is truly memorable

* Attended weddings in the family : Good to meet the whole family and see how almost evey single woman of my generation is working. Was super proud to see all the mom-preneurs !

* One house party with 15 women – great experience and lessons on event management and engagement [Food, Games and lots of hard work go in to make any event happen!!]

* Met in the real-world with a lot of new people – whom I actually got introduced in the online world ; A lot of genuinely nice people do exist

2) Be at atleast 1 event / month – industry, art, etc. 

Feb 2016 –Surge , IAMAI , Surajkund Crafts Mela

Mar 2016 – Bhasha Shakti 

Wonderful to just get out and see the amazing things that people are doing

3) Speak / Share my views @ atleast 1 event or forum / month, i.e, get on the stage

Jan 2016 – “Navigating long term careers in large enterprises” | Tweetchat for B-schools

Feb 2016 – “9 Investments to fast-track your career” | Session at Intel

Mar 2016 –  “GTM Strategy” | B-school session

4) Experience new things – Things which I have not done for a long time to push myself out of the comfort zone

* Design is the next big thing anyway, so I thought let me experiment on myself by applying all that I know about design on the clothes that I wear, so designed a few clothes for myself: Best part is aunties who rarely pass compliments say its good, Wow

* Attended a Day @ the Farm with kids : Was a new experience to do yoga in a farm while kids got to play with organic foods!

* Did a trial art class with the kids ; Re-discovered the world of colors and beauty of art

 

And not mention, all my writing / blogging / social media highlights that happened along the way…

* For Women’s Day, did a special series on the blog “Looks & Cooks to Voices, Choices and Joys”. It has received some excellent response from personal and professional networks

* Featured in #PowerWomanAtWork (along with Indra Nooyi and Kiran Bedi)

* Published 50+ posts across all my blogs so far!

 

Phew! Been quite an amazing and busy quarter so far this year.. and Hope the trend continues rest of the year..

Tweetchat with B-school students on “Navigating careers in large organizations”

Last week, I had the opportunity to be an invited guest for a tweetchat on “Navigating long term careers in large organizations” exclusively for B-school students

 

WiproTweetChatLatest

It was interesting and exciting to be part of the tweetchat – primarily to interact with B-school students from all over India. It was very well attended, and a busy 1 hour- I really don’t know how the time zoomed by. While the discussion covered a range of questions on career choices, work motivation, new age skills and work – life balance..

The Storify of the session is here. A snapshot overview of the summary is here

Some amazing session feedback is below:

2015 | The Year that was – Social Media Accolades, Writing, Events and more..

So 2015 has almost come to an end.. As I look back at this year gone by in terms of my journey as a writer / blogger, I think I have come a long way. This year has been one of many firsts for me, many dreams come true, and many new opportunities coming my way – Thanks to my writing and social media connections..

The most significant for me (in random order) were:

  1. Being featured in a full page newspaper article in Deccan Chronicle
  2. Making a debut on Huffingtonpost (which has been with me for about 2 years now!) and EconomicTimes
  3. My blog featured among the Best Marketing Blogs of India
  4. Publishing a total of 250+ posts across my own blogs and guest blogs which have garnered a total of views of 2.1+ lakhs; Of special mention is being able to post 100+ blogs on LinkedIn
  5. A highly interactive, energitic and applauded session to 110+ digital marketers on “The Art and Craft of Content” based solely on my journey as a ‘content crafter’
  6. Veteran journalist and respected writer Madhavan Narayan (who is a write par excellence) telling me that “I am really bright” in our first real-world rendezvous. Sometimes compliments from unexpected sources stay with you forever..
  7. Being a speaker at several online / offline events on topics dear to my heart
  8. Being involved with the Indian startup community
  9. LinkedIn Editor (India) writing to me telling ” I have been enjoying your posts” and then featuring a lot of my writings on Pulse.. And of course, all the appreciation, comments and reader feedback for all of my blogs / writings
  10. 54+K views for my writings on FinExtra (the leading resource for the global fintech community) – I never expected this

As I looked through my writing, a curated timeline of some of the best / most popular / personal favorite posts and highlights in terms of events and collaborations was absolutely due. So here goes…
