LIVE: Amity University Speech on Employeeship

We're now live at Amity University in Noida (just outside Delhi), India where Claus has just been introduced by the honourable Prof. (Dr.) Gurinder Singh, the Director General of Amity International Business School.

We'll be updating for the next two hours from the speech and will also upload the presentation later on this weekend for the students to download.

Working through very dodgy tech with full power cuts (twice) and constantly dropped internet connections.
Claus has gone through the European Culture Survey, examples including "Saturday evening" and "everything is just fine" stress relief. He's also presented the Business Excellence model with its two aspects of Professional and General Business Excellence before leading into Employeeship and its 11 factors.
Due to the power cuts, Claus is now running the presentation without slides and got a great cheer from the crowd when he said that "only speakers who don't know their topics need PowerPoint."
We will need to finish the live coverage here due to the lack of adequate power. Sorry for the inconvenience. We will ensure that we make slides available to you all shortly.

Last PPF Seminar Day in India

After a whistlestop tour of India, Claus is now doing his last full day programme at the ITC Royal Gardenia hotel in Bangalore. The staff at the hotel have been exceptional and the ballroom is the best out of the 3 venues for open seminars so far. We also enjoyed a great experience in Mumbai yesterday. After the end of the Putting People First seminar today we've got a long domestic flight back to Delhi and a 2 hour presentation to students and faculty at Amity University tomorrow, where the topic will be Employeeship.

We would like to thank our hosts at Inspire One for organising the visit and laying on the seminars. They have taken very well care of all of us and Neeta and Deepak have been great company while we've been travelling round India. A big thanks from us to you and your staff in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.

In India

Yesterday Claus started off by doing an internal presentation for the HR team at Cairn Energy in New Delhi and followed that up with a high profile event for the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI). The latter was attended by everything from Chairmen of the largest publicly listed companies in India to senior level governmental advisers and Permanent Secretaries of the largest governmental departments. Claus was thrilled to see people who had come to see him both 10 and 15 years ago on previous visits to India and it's great to see the level of enthusiasm that he is able to generate here. Today there is an open seminar on Putting People First for more than 100 senior managers at the ballroom of the Sheraton New Delhi, which will be followed by similar seminars in Mumbai on Thursday the 18th and Bangalore on Friday the 19th.

We will be uploading pictures from the various events in due course, but you can see mobile snaps on the Twitpic account accessible through Claus's Twitter profile.
