Guest Lecture by Mr. Balaji Subhramanium

We ISBRians never knew that a bright afternoon of 8th August could be more brighter with a man delivering incredible speeches on issues which we think is very simple“ How to talk? “ or “How to listen?”. And he is none other than MR. BALAJI SUBHRAMANIUM, a man with interests in corporate training with full of excitements and zeal. He dealt with Managerial communication which almost every student may hope to be very easy, but unfortunately it is not.

So what is “communication” according to our guest?

It comes from the Greek word “communico”, meaning  “to share”.

To have a better communication, it is necessary to have listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. He presented to us a pictorial representation of how listening skills covered 45% of the pie chart, with the other 30% being speaking, 16 % being reading and the rest 9% being writing. 

But does listening and speaking only mean communicating? IT is not. A proper communication requires physical presentation simultaneously. So Mr. Balaji insisted on all of us to put up a smiling face always and dress accordingly, Which can bring a difference in the tonality of the words that we choose while speaking.

He expressed his own opinions, ideas and feelings as the keys to proper interaction and communication. Mr. Subhramanium included case-studies  to make our session with him more fruitful.

It was a pleasure for all of the students to have him in the campus. We all hope to improve our skill sets through our learning  from MR. BALAJI SUBHRAMANIUM.
