Second day’s speaker at the workshop was Maulik Mehta who is the director and the chief executive of Infinity Consultant Limited. He said some inspirational words to motivate all the audience present over there including the participants. The topic on which he spoke was “HOW TO IDEATE”.
He started by saying, “how to Ideate is a very cumbersome topic to speak upon. He gave an example of “Mozart” (symphony reference). He believes that focus should be on Value and not for Valuation. According to him IDEA is a thought or suggestion for possible course of action. What is a source of action? 1) situational awareness / intuition 2) environmental awareness 3) network externalities, etc.
His words explained a lot to the participants and were very helpful to them.”
