A Guest Lecture by Mr. Chandra Mohan Gupta, Director of Corporate Affairs, Cocacola.

A Guest Lecture by Mr. Chandra Mohan Gupta, Director of Corporate Affairs, Cocacola.

He began his session by saying, “We do things for a certain purpose.
To my surprise before he could go further, he gave some of the reasons for why we must listen to him. This was something which I experienced rarely. He stated, “I have 22 work experience and it has been 16 years with Cocacola.”
After finishing his introduction, he proceeded further for sharing more lessons.
The main agenda of his discussion was: “How to leverage your internship to face rapid changes?”
“You are in a secured environment. If you make mistakes, there are no consequences but there will be, in future. You must not just focus on theory only nor you should focus on reality only, rather there must be a mixture of both. University is the best place to learn it”, he added.
He showed us a video to make us realize that ‘Stuff Happens’ to make us realize that “World is not perfect.”
“Keep in your mind why are you doing an Internship”, he suggested.
He talked about Dark Challenges such as: Aging population, shifting economic corner of gravity, wellbeing, growing urban class. He also talked about Economic centers.
He also made us realize how lucky we are to study in life.
“Time has changed. There was a time when I used to call my parents only for 30 seconds as the call costs were as high as Rs. 32 per minute at peak times and Rs. 8-16 at non-peak hours.
One element of behavior: As we progress, there is a consumption of materials. Now a days, we prefer to choose Air conditioned Halls over the hall with just normal consumption of videos.
Be Mindful.
He later talked about disruptive mind frame.
For instance, Cocacola was sold as a tonic at pharmacy which initially offered 16 offering every day, 1986 where it now offers around 200 cores”
He was running out of time so he couldn’t show the videos of Packaging, Sharing, Sustainability, Ecosystem, and Innovation.
“Being open to see mistakes as an opportunities.
Connect. Learn. Share”, Faisal.
He ended up his lecture by talking about the social media mobility.
I hope you learned something from his speech.
Thanks & Regards,
