I am sure you all would agree that last week was quite an action packed week. Firstly India beating our arch-rival Pakistan in the World Cup Semis and then proceeding to win the World Cup on Saturday and what a match it was closely fought and intently watched ???? and finally we emerged as the undisputed champions in the cricketing world.
We also had quite a few action happening off the field within Octaware. Firstly the fresh wave of some very good projects coming our way from the US and the Middle-East, (our efficient pre-sales team giving such wonderful solutions and proposals that no one could resist ????) and then we had a couple of to & fro within the organization with software developer going on onsite assignments and then having our Octaware -US, Director – Engineering & Operations, Mr.Sultan Abdul Kader who has earlier had a very illustrious career at Micro Soft, visiting the Octaware Corporate office and our Development Centres in Mumbai & Pune.
Amidst all this action we too this this opportunity to host a luncheon at a leading 5-Star hotel in Mumbai with the entire Mumbai Team in attendance and the date was 01st of April, and no this is not an April Fools joke, we did have a great lunch session with an extensive spread of mouth-watering delicacies, enjoyed by one & all. Did someone say about ‘Power Lunch’!!! ????. Before that we did have Mr.Abdul Kader interacting with the sales team, discussing some sales strategies, having a wonderful and interactive technical session with the Development Team and yes after the wholesome gastronomical experience, laying down strategies with the Management sitting through the lunch session. If someone says its lonely at the top, I would like to add, its not just lonely but you dont get to enjoy ur food in serenity as well, always trying to utilize and optimize the available time in hand.
