Power of Ambition (Training)

An ambitious attitude can lead anyone to triumph and satisfaction, regardless of what is put in front of them. To have the will, the dream and the courage to be on top of the world will get you a lot further in life than any skill you can possibly possess. Having talent means nothing if you have no ambition behind it to work at any given point of the day.

 

It is rare to find much consensus amongst academic researchers, but when it comes to the study of entrepreneurship, the role of ambition is widely recognized. Ambition is at the very core of success and extraordinary achievement. Unlike greed, it's a powerful, creative and constructive force. The power of ambition turns eager desires into reality, giving you the inner drive to achieve financial security, lead a happier, more fulfilling life, and enrich the lives of everyone around you.

REALM of Personal Leadership- with Kamran Rizvi (KARACHI)

It’s high time we unravel a few myths surrounding leadership and share empowering and enduring facts by revisiting leadership as a concept and practice with new eyes.

 

Leadership is not ‘out there’, it is in each one of us, waiting to be tapped. We all live in our own worlds. Your ‘realm’ is your world – your inner and outer world. You live in yours while others live in theirs. Your world is how you see it and what you make of it. It is not what anyone else tells you. Hence, we will learn to see our world anew so that we can attain greater happiness, health and respect, wherever we are and whatever we do. Anyone blessed with these three gifts has attained true wealth.

 

Kamran shares significant and paradigm shifting insights gained on the subject from his 40 years of international and local experience.

Getting and Staying Out of the Box (ISLAMABAD)

* Registration is mandatory.

 

Getting in and staying in the box restricts our perspective and makes us sick, unlikable, and mediocre performer.

 

We get stuck when we have problems we can’t see. Since we can’t see them, we don’t even know they exist. We mistakenly think the problems are something else, ignoring the real issue. Put yourself in the picture. Since you can only see things from your closed and limited perspective – and since, like most people, you probably resist the suggestion that the truth lies outside of things you’ve considered – you are primarily in a box, that is “cut off, closed up, and blind.”

 

Are you aware of your shortcomings? Or maybe, the problem is that you don't know them.

 

Leadership is AUTHENTICITY, not a STYLE.'

 

Success and power of influence depends on being out of the box.

R (E)TAIL R (E) VOLUTIONS: Debating Digitized Marketplaces (KARACHI)

Session on Digital Economics for Developing Online Markets

 

Digital lifestyles today are not the exception but the norm. With the advent of a more serious utilization of social media today, after its introduction more than a decade ago in Pakistan, the transition from Orkut to Social has been interesting. Having seen the evolution of Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft and the likes of Netflix, and now Twitter in Pakistan and companies like Amazon offering cloud services; apps, startups and smart devices have begun to diktat our everyday living, penetrating almost all facets of human workings.

 

With the Internet of Things expected to benefit global economics by up to 11 trillion dollars in less than one decade, mobile commerce accounting for almost fifty percent of consumer spend heading to $248 billion dollars, plus the massive online retail potential in Pakistan, the discussion pertaining to online service providers, e-tailing, mobile payments becomes all the more of import as this narrative is now driving both business and consumer sentiment.

 

While corporate initiatives look at becoming leaner and gear up for social, are businesses truly ready to transit from advertising online to now selling online. With a huge hue of startups clouding the technosphere, serving a platter of goods/services, do consumers understand how life may look in five years? Do companies?

 

As the brick mortar shops of the past fabric themselves into the e-volution, the diatribe and democracy of online commerce becomes even more pertinent. Diagnostics of government regulatory frameworks for ecommerce, taxation policies, barriers to entry, multinational players, growing consumer voices, startup survival; to discuss all this and more, the IDG Editorial team invites you to give your two anna’s as we close 2016 and see what’s up ahead next year. Let’s talk beyond the Big Friday. IDG wants you there!!!!!

Raise your unique child

Every child has a unique way of feeling, thinking, and interacting with others. Some children are shy, while others are outgoing.  Some are active, while others are calm. Some are fretful, while others are easy-going.  As a loving and nurturing parent and teacher, it’s your job to encourage them to embrace their uniqueness and celebrate their individual qualities.

 

What this Session intends to Achieve?

1) Why your Child is significantly different from you?

2) How to identify the deep, permanent and unique “personality” of your child?
