Education system in India
I believe education system is doing it's job; but if they have a system to identify student's potential at early stage right after school and given them specialized skills learning rather than standard education pattern, we could have specialized industry skills ready from beginning of their career.
Importance of brand image
Branding is very important; but it doesn't come easy.
What achievements are you really proud off , in your corporate journey?
I remember back in 2007 my VP of sales asked me a question "Where do you see yourself 5 years form now?" I had replied saying; "In your position" Somewhat I have achieved it ;-)

Sales and Marketing are two different field; I have seen good marketing people becoming a sales professional but good sales people will not want to loose on extra incentives by entering into marketing field.!
