Metis Talent Management brand new website goes live

Last fortnight was a joy, as we came to the launch of Metis Talent Management's website. Metis is a Singapore based organisation that advises clients on Talent Management with a primary focus on Talent Development and Organisation Design. Best wishes to team Metis!

The other great thing is how folks at Metis approached this by going in for a full overhaul, including getting a new logo and brand colours. Do leave your comments on what you feel about the website and the logo!!

Coping ICC World Cup 2007 aftermath for India and Pak:Lateral Idea

While the cricket fans of India and Pakistan are smarting over early exits of their national teams , here is a suggestion to BCCI and PCB to utilize an excellent opportunity ahead of us.

Forget the ICC WC 2007. Organize a quickfire India Pakistan ODI series in parallel! Yes!!

Hold five matches in India and five in Pakistan.

Why does this make sense:

1. Cricket fans in the subcontinent would not just be happy, but delighted.Nothing generates more fun than India Pak cricketing encounters.
2.
The advertisers would have a mighty good alternate option. Nothing generates more money than India Pak cricketing encounters.
3. Matches would happen in IST & PST. Late night would be reserved for encounters of the other kind!
4. For BCCI and PCB, there is tons of (more) money to be made.ICC would realize the power of the cricket fans inthe subcontinent. Its TRPs and ad revenues would dip sharply and BCCI and PCB would have their chance to settle scores with ICC. ICC would accept any bargain.
5. Players and the managers of brands they endorse would be delighted too, reasons are so obvious!(Okay if they are not obvious, then let me state - finally their brand ambassadors would be seen winning, for a change)

Stretch your imagination a bit and make Siddhu - Mandira Bedi duo the official commentators and think how cool this would be(or hot, take your pick).

You may feel such a series is impossible(Well, some copyrighter said something like Impossible is Nothing!). Okay, if 'official'(meaning ICC blessed) series is not possible, then let us organise some 'exhibition matches' or Kiran More welfare matches(let us thank him for his services to cricket so that he says goodbye to cricket in all forms- finally!!).
(And now get back to work!!!!)

Why do we need anymore cricket? I think we have been fooled enough and its time for us to realize the same.

CIO India is launched but wondering who gets copies.

While International Media GroupIDG has brought one of its most popular IT publications for managers CIO, subscribing to it is a pain. The first issue of CIO India was published in Nov 2005 and according to IDG, currently distributes 6000 copies across India. I wonder who gets them.Having followed US edition of CIO (It is absolutely first rate) for a while now, I was quite delighted to know there is an Indian edition too. However, try to subscribe to a paper copy. First, there is no concept of paid subscription. One need to register a request for a print subscription, and that begins an endless wait to hear whether your subscription was approved or not. (I registered in May 2007 and am still waiting to hear back from them!). And no, CIO does not sell off the shelf, it only comes into your letter box.I wish this subscription request and acceptance process is improved significantly if CIO India has to indeed make a mark. I have sent multiple emails over the last three quarters and follow…

Ideacopter's 'Marketing for all' mission.

Since we started www.ideacopter.com at the turn of the year, we ventured into the unknown. But having a very exciting four months and we feel our mission of making marketing accessible to startups is more valid than ever. Marketing in general, but more specifically branding, digital marketing etc is practised in a very unscientific fashion in most startups. But the great thing is that all startups realize Brand is something they can't afford to ignore anymore, especially, if they wish to scale up. We at Ideacopter attempt to fill that gap. Let's see how the rest of the year goes.
