I am an electrical engineer working in a large private sector power plant. I am a B E College pass out - 82EE. I wish to share my 22 years experience with you all. If you arrange seminar/ lecture on a topics like "Maintenance Management in power plants", I will be certainly able to contribute. I also often take lectures/ conduct workshop on executive development program. In such case, my favorite topic is "Conditioning of mind for managing radical changes".
Regarding my favourite topic "Conditioning of mind for managing radical changes", a full day workshop for 20-30 people will be appropriate. But, topic like "Maintenance Management in power plants" may be of shorter duration (4-8 hours). However, both of my programs can be custom made. If choice is given, I will design it according to the need. My talk can focus various managerial aspects like objectives, organisation, types of maintenance, balance score card of any typical maintenance dept., motivation, suggestion schemes, safety & accident control etc. or any other topic that can be expected from a working maintenance professional.

I am Mumbai based. Hence, I will be generally available during my visit to Calcutta. Special trip can be arranged on your request.

Would like to join as a speaker on Entrepreneurship. Advance notice is required, as I may be out of India from time to time.
