This week I held a guest lecture at NIT (India’s version of MIT). Previous guest lectures at Pragyan seminar: Prof. Noam Chomsky MIT. Founder Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia and Nobel Price winners. In other words it was an honor to be a part of this rich history of guest lectures.
In the invitation they wrote the following about me: “Come to Pragyan ‘11 to see this Genius at work!!” This is more than what a humble Swede is used to. They also wrote this kind praise:
His blog www.detectivemarketing.com is one of the most entertaining and thought-provoking blogs offering witty comments and sharp analysis of current global phenomena. His understanding of the modern consumer market is unparalleled and his thoughts on improving brand-consumer relationships are revolutionary to say the least.
How did it go?
Not up to me to say, but the response was fantastic, the students of NIT are one of the best audience I ever had. Pragyan seminars are arranged by the students with a passion that exceeds any student arranged seminar I have ever seen. I believe that these passionate NIT students will end up working at corporations such as Google, Microsoft and Apple. Why? Because they are genius and I feel honored and humble to have met the future of the technology elite.
