‘Please ensure that you are always working for the customer’
- Mr. Atul Kirloskar

Pune, April 20, 2019: ‘‘When you start doing a job, you get used to it and tend to forget that all businesses are there for the customer. This fact is slowly forgotten, and we start thinking instead of what we are doing and what we are offering. Therefore, it is always important to sense the desires of the customer.’’, said renowned entrepreneur Atul Kirloskar. He was speaking to the students at the convocation ceremony of Kirloskar Institute of Advanced Management Studies (KIAMS) today in Pune.

The convocation of the class of 2019 of KIAMS was held in the presence of Atul Kirloskar, President, Governing Council, KIAMS along with the Chief Guest R. R.

While talking to the students, Kirloskar also stressed that the real education starts after getting into the business.

There is always an advantage in the diversity of thinking as you may not be able to think everything.’’

R. R. Deshpande and Vikas Joshi shared some of their learning experiences with the students. Deshpande said that regardless of whether you are an employee or an entrepreneur, respecting people is the most important thing for success.
