Every person has a unique set of competencies, which prime him/her for success. While some of these competencies are role specific, most others are generic and aid in effective functioning. The latest among these to be valued is cross-cultural competence, which sets the stage for success in today’s context, whether global or local. Given that the world is getting increasingly diverse, especially post globalisation, the inability to effectively function in it can cause issues ranging from embarrassment to disaster. Against this backdrop Cross-Cultural Competence for Glocal Success explains the value of this competence to ensure greater personal and professional success. It also helps the reader gauge where

    Every year, tens of thousands of companies—from industry giants to aspiring upstarts—apply to speak at conferences. They pump millions of dollars into these events, hoping to find new customers, strengthen their brand, and meet new partners. Sadly, for most of them, things don’t go that way. Submitted topics aren’t chosen; when they are, they come across as tone-deaf sales pitches.

    What does it take to be chosen to speak—and to rock the mic when given the chance? This book takes you behind-the-scenes of the conference process, showing you how to submit, plan, and deliver a talk that matters. Event organizer Alistair Croll provides many examples based on his experience with a wide range of conferences, including O’Reilly’s Strata, Velocity, Web2Expo, and TOC Conferences.
    • Learn 11 items that help your submission stand out—and 11 items that will get it tossed
    • Explore the hurdles your proposal has to clear before it’s accepted
    • Tailor your talk to a conference’s topics and themes
    • Discover why images work better than words in your slide deck
    • Achieve your business goals by engaging the audience before, during, and after your talk
    "We’ve been running successful events worldwide for over a decade, and the simple truth is that the people who get chosen, and give great presentations, follow the rules in this book."

    Like most important events in life, my wandering in the field of training was a matter of accident. Before 1947, the Government was not teaching Hindi. So Gandhiji started Rashtrabhasha Prachar Sabha and I became a Pracharak to propagate the national language. Out of the topics in the curriculum, I was asked to teach Hindi and Urdu poetry – because I was one of the junior-most pracharaks and there was no great demand for teaching poetry.



    I was fond of poetry. In teaching poetry, there is a scope for using imagination. This gave me a chance to talk from the right side of the brain controlled by imagination rather than the left side controlled by organized thinking.



    Since these lectures were not sourced out of any books, material had to be prepared for each programme. The scripts of these lectures attracted enough attention to record them on audio-cassettes. India Book House issued the first audio-cassettes. Ultimately the combination of these audio-cassettes became audio-compact-disc (ACD).



    The lectures cover topics on soft skills. Each management function has some “hard skills” comprising techniques which are specific to that function e.g. Network Analysis for Project Management, Inventory Control Models for Material Management, Statistical Quality Control for Production Management, etc., but there are some behavioral skills common to all functions of management. These are the “soft skills” covered by this book. These are useful for participants of training programmes to generate discussions. These are also useful for those who undertake self-development through personal studies to improve their comprehension of the management process which is more of an art than a science and cannot be understood only by persuing management techniques i.e. the hard skills.

    No one can really question that English has been gaining increasing importance in the global context and is here to stay. Moreover, despite its fairly widespread prevalence in India, many mistakes still occur in its usage and most often people find it difficult to communicate in a formal manner, it being at a basic level a non native language for most users here.

    Against this backdrop, Knowing Your Words’ Worth: A Practical Guide To Communicating Effectively in English attempts in a simple step by step style, infused at times with illustrations, to demonstrate how to use the language effectively.

    It is an attempt to provide an easy, compact and yet comprehensive access to the latest expectations, as regards formats and content used in English, since language is dynamic and constantly evolves.
    By covering varied aspects – common errors in using English, reading, listening, comprehending and writing, it seeks to serve as a quick reference guide for students, professional’s et al, in fact for anyone interested in communicating effectively in English.

    The hope is to simplify and enhance communication, through an easy to use and well organised manual, that swerves away from theory to essentially focus on practice.
