AVEVA India hosts inspiring internal event for Hyderabad employees
Hyderabad, India – 14 October 2016: AVEVA India organised an internal AVEVA event on 13 October which coincided with the visit of their Non-Executive director and company Chairman, Philip Aiken and their deputy CEO, James Kidd. This event opened with a speech from the well-known and respected “voice of Indian Cricket” Harsha Bhogle.
Harsha Bhogle and his wife, Anita, were the external motivational speakers for the event. They spoke in detail about their series “The Winning Way-Learnings from sport”. This motivational speech focused on the parameters that are otherwise overlooked in everyday working life. It was a successful experience which enabled each of the employees to sit back and rediscover their passion for excellence through the medium of sport.
The discussion was centred around how sports champions and winning teams handle issues like teambuilding, leadership, execution and goal-setting. It also examined what winning teams do, what makes winning teams, who are good leaders and why certain teams keep winning, and others experience shortlived success. The event was a great success with the young AVEVA workforce, exemplified by employees’ comments such as “Harsha Bhodle, correlating sports with our world of technology and relating the challenges a sportsman faces to the challenges faced by us, was the real essence of the speech. The success stories he shared are invaluable to us”.
