Social Samvad/Jamshedpur: Mr. Ritesh Chopra, Partner & Chief Operating Officer of KPMG Global Services Pvt. Ltd., was guest speaker for students of the XLRI PGDM (GM) 2022-23 batch for a CXO session aimed at giving the students insights and learnings from the corporate world.

The event began with an inaugural address by Urvashi Kaul, XLRI Jamshedpur, who welcomed Mr. Chopra.

During the session Mr. Chopra spoke about learnings from his journey which can be applied at all levels in the corporate world.

He stressed the importance of deeply understanding one’s role, and that you derive success if business leaders under you succeed. He spoke about teamwork and complementing rather than competing against each other.

He also spoke about continuously developing critical skills, emphasizing transformation skills. Being agile in today’s business environment requires shifting to a new gear every day. Covid taught us to be agile, with how the business model changed overnight as everything moved to virtual platforms.

As a leader, he highlighted how critical it was to build a strong team around yourself. An empowered and self-sufficient team is crucial for the success of a leader.

He talked about learning from failure and embracing the journey. Growth will come to if you push your boundaries; there is no shortcut in life.

Some of the key skills he stressed for the students were fair understanding of finance, operating under ambiguity, managing stakeholders and expectations, being curious, strategic thinking and influencing outcomes.

Mr. Chopra then answered a number of questions from the students on a range of topics.

The session ended with a vote of thanks by Shivank Chaudhary, XLRI Jamshedpur.
