Pleasure to meet you today. As discussed in person, I invite you as guest speaker to an IBM India event on 20 July over conference call . As you will be in US, would evening 4:30 pm IST suit your schedule ? It would be early morning in New York ( 7am) . Would you be interested to share your Career story with our young women audience who are early on in their careers (Entry level to Mid Management) . We can connect on a call to fine tune the details . It could be narrative around following aspects where audience can draw parallels from your personal story for their own career development
1. Finding true calling , identifying where do you want to go, what kind of person you want to be, values clarification first and then making a career out of your job.
2. Aspirations, ambitions, dreams .Flipping the burger is part of process in early years
3 Paitence is virtue , Playing the game is important , Making it big through perseverance.
4 Find mentors , not just one, tis desirable to have 2 -3 mentors across diverse fields
5 Finding the balance through work life integration and healthy habits & choices
Let me take a pause and ask What do you think / feel ? In fact, it may not appeal to you at all AND you may say ,Ruchi, I have this better topic ? ( Managing Stress ,Women’s Health ? ) which will connect with young working women audience who are baffled with variety of choices and trade offs in their lives. Let me know which topic will make you comfortable , where you feel you are at ease and at same time will excite you enough to share you own experience / observations / narrative in your own style . I leave the choice to you 🙂
