Speech for Mr.

ICMCI President Dr. Aneeta Madhok, IMCI President Anuj
Bhargava, Chief Guest and our key note speaker Dr. Surinder PS
Pruthi, all delegates, ladies & gentlemen. It gives me immense
pleasure to welcome all of you to the 17 th national convention of the
Institute of Management Consultants of India. It is an honour to Pune
Chapter to host this convention after a gap of almost 5 years. Pune, as
we all know is a centre of learning. The weather is beautiful and we
have tried our best to make this convention remarkable from every
aspect. You will be listening to eminent speakers from industry,
consultancy and academia on wide variety of subjects. Dr. Dilip
Sarwate, our convention chairman, will be briefing you on the
convention theme and topics which will be covered in two days.
I hope you will agree with me that organizing a national convention
of this magnitude is not an easy task. We have limited resources,
particularly the manpower. Most of our members are busy in their
profession. The preparation of a convention begins with lookout for
sponsors without which we cannot proceed. We are fortunate to have
found support from MITCON Consultancy Services Ltd, Nihilent
Technolgies, Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd. And Indira Group
of Institutes, advertisers and of course, you delegates who made it
possible. The next task was finding appropriate speakers who will do
justice to the theme. Our team was on the job for last 3 months and
more which saw this day. There were eleventh hour cancellations and
we had to struggle with a deadline. I know that there will be few
shortcomings in our efforts and I would request you to accommodate
us with these limitations.
Once again I welcome you all and hope that you will take back good
memories of this convention. Thank you.

Speech of Dilip M. Sarwate

Dignitaries on the dais, delegates, ladies & gentlemen. I hope you will
agree with me that last two years have been particularly turbulent to
the world economies. The only superpower in the world USA in the
grip of severe recession, countries like Iceland, Spain declaring
bankruptcy and India plagues with one scandal after another, we were
looking for an appropriate theme for our convention. After doing a
small informal opinion poll, we found that a majority were worried
about the future. Everyone agreed that we are in a fast changing
world and how to cope up to these changes is top on their mind. This
brought in the theme for this convention- Enterprise of the FutureManaging Change Successfully. Having finalized the theme, we
started identifying sectors like IT, SME, Infrastructure, International
Business, Health care and many others which are more likely to be
affected. The two focus areas which emerged were Innovation and
People Management. Having done this, finding appropriate speakers
who will do justice to the topics was comparatively an easier task.
The Time Table for two days is in your hand. We are fortunate to
have an eminent intellectual speaker in Dr. Surinder PS Pruthi who
has specially flown in from Delhi to deliver the keynote address.
There are many delegates in the audience who have specially come
only to listen to him, some being his past students from IIM
Ahmadabad. (Elaborate on the sessions over two days).
In many conventions, there is a plethora of speakers. In one session,
some time, there are 4-5 speakers. In my humble opinion, this is an
injustice to the learned speakers to give their views only in 5-10
minutes. We have avoided this. As you will see, we have only two
speakers per session and we have given adequate time to Question &
Answers. Each session will be chaired by past presidents of IMCI and
other senior delegates who I am sure will also give their benefit of
wisdom. So ladies & gentlemen, I hope you will find this intellectual
palate meeting your expectations. Thanking you.
