Guest Lecture – Natwar Kadel

          An eminent personality, he was young, bubbly and interactive with the students throughout the whole session. We had active participation through the whole session and kept us engaged.

“Arise, Awake and Stop not till the Goal is reached”

– Swami Vivekananda

                His second visit to our institute for presenting guest lecture to us was really promising. He shared his rich knowledge about joining as a management trainee in 2007 and his fast growth as senior manager in the organization. He wanted to share failure stories rather than success stories because that inspires and rekindles motivation to budding entrepreneurs like us. His journey in school and college wasn’t a harmonic and successful one, even though he stands as a great eminent personality today. His comment about reading newspaper was really important to all of us to keep us updated every day. Education is just the fundamentals, lessons learnt in real life are much more important to get success in career. In this highly competitive world, we have to be smart right away.


               Through his rich experience of 10 years in Hyundai, he learned “attitude” was really important. Nobody actually explained the word “attitude” more clearly than him. In the organization, more than talent, attitude is really important for an individual. He also explained with example that Sachin Tendulkar’s attitude was responsible for his greatest success, more than his talent which was really inspiring for us. Learning never stops in one’s life. Being smart, reading between the lines, being best in this competitive world were all his emphasis. As development psychology states, babies walk because of their own desire. Similarly one’s own desire is only capable of making us successful in life. His great examples of Jan Koum, Brian Acton (CEO of Whatsapp) and Jai Ganesh (IAS) were so motivating for becoming successful even after facing repeated failure in their life. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, founder of Biocon, one of India’s most powerful women made a difference in brewery industry in India showed us an example of being successful among her hindrances.

             His passionate attitude was really strong towards his job, made his career successful in a short time period. Fear is the only hindrance which stops one’s growth. Frugality, the real smartness is an important aspect of Indians. The journey from a student to employee has to be an endless learning from anyone at any time.

                 The knowledge he shared regarding the interaction with best CEOs of the world by Samuel,

  • Learning in college is only the foundation.

  • Be someone your colleague wants to work with.

  • You’re not as smart as think you are, even if you’re smart as you think you are – Mahatma Gandhi.

  • From the very first moment everyone creates an impression.

  • Do what’s required from the medium to the extraordinary to get the job done.

  • The harder and smarter you work, the luckier you get.

  • Learn to listen, listen to learn.

  • Don’t learn tricks of the trade, learn the trade.

  • Embrace your weakness.

  • Network your brain.

  • Don’t lose yourself trying to be what you think others want you to be.

                 He quoted “Be yourself, do different, don’t bother about the world, you’ll create a difference”. Growth of one’s life is in one’s own hand. We all had a great and enriching afternoon because of Natwar Kadel’s eminent speech. His inspiring knowledge made us learn about attitude and achieving success as a part of growth. I‘m sure we would all follow his words and become a successful person in the near future.
