On 9th of October 2015 the students of Sant Kabir Institute of Professional Studies #SKIPS had the privilege of having an interactive session with Mr. Saurabh Agrawal, Chairman of Red Events Pvt. Ltd. on the topic ‘Entrepreneurship and Challenges.’ The session gathered real momentum with the speech of our guest speaker which commenced with the narration of his journey to make #RedEvents Pvt. Ltd a highly successful event management company. The captivating way of narration of his journey created excitement and enthusiasm among the students. Quite earlier in his career he had sensed an opportunity in affluent Indian weddings and soon turned his vision into reality and started a wedding portal called Shaadi, Gujarat’s first organized wedding management firm. In 2006 he re-launched #Shaadiinfo as Red Events, and today it is synonymous to one stop solution to all event needs.
He emphasized that irrespective of the ethical dimension, it is the passion and focus on your work which makes you successful. He mentioned aspirations and requirements of different clients are totally different and so should be the managing strategies. He responded to the queries of students about his experience with the different kind of clients and the emerging trends in this industry. His patient way of answering the queries of students made the interaction motivational for the students. On practical note he emphasized that one has to be very patient and one should be willing to show promptness of dealing with clients. He recognized that a good team comprised of good people who believe in the vision of their leader is what makes a company successful. He advised students to get on the field to get the firsthand experience of the problems, difficulties and opportunities in a particular industry.
He concluded his speech by motivating students to be focused and dedicated towards their goal. The speech proved to be very inspiring and informative for the students. The entire event was well coordinated by the student committee of #SKOPE
