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!!

More is not always better

This is my 100th post. It has taken me 2 years to reach to this milestone. I started blogging as an item to satisfy my curiosity (Let me be honest -my mean interest was to get a Gmail account - I had heard they were offering Gmail accounts to select bloggers with 1 GM space. My hope was to be one of them. I did not get a Gmail account this way but got sort of fascinated by this media). And by the way another blogger obliged me by sending a Gmail invite.

Interestingly, this is not my first experiment with web content.Way back in 1999 I had created a website which though not updated since 2000, to my utter surprise, still exists and can be accessed. I don't have the password to the update the contents to have to let it R.I.P.

In two years of blogging, my blogposts have wandered from what's happening in Chennai (the city I live in), business books that I liked, to marketing, and even an occasional bit of technology. The posts that have got me the highest visitor response have been those on former President of India, yes you guessed it, Dr A.P.J Kalam. Those on cricket have caused good number of foot falls too. Of late I have attempted humour too. In short the only 'unifying theme' I could think of describing my blog as having is variety.

When I started blogging, I had the easy choice of taking the route that several others have taken, that is, to start reacting to daily happenings with three to four posts per day- or wait for something to really provoke me into writing. I choose the later, trying to balance time from work, a kid daughter who really needs my time, and my wife, who is a PhD researcher in Biotechnology and a perfectionist. Hence the title of this post- More is not always beautiful.

My blogging journey continues unabated and I thank all readers for bearing with my shameless, opinionated views! I shall carry on, with your due permission!!

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…

Paste the Zoho code at the place where you want your slideshow to appear.Publish and your are up. It may appear complex, b…

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.
