Here are some key takeaways from the interview:

  • To achieve significance and sustainable success, be honest and ask ourselves, “What’s my end game?”
  • Marketing is the art of creating a dream and making it come alive.
  • Know your secure bases. Go explore and have little adventures in your career, but ensure you have a back-up plan and something you can fall back on.
  • Leadership is all about creating energy and moving people by emotions.
  • We have many inspiring people who have contributed in many big ways, but their stories remained untold. We need to learn from our Western counterparts to be better storytellers.
