- The highlight was the keynote address delivered by Shri V Ramesh, Sr. VP of Toyota Kirloskar in Bidadi, Bangalore. He spoke of the steps being taken by Toyota to serve the Indian society by raising the quality of the workforce, how they are being motivated and taken care of.
- Smt. Pankajam Sridevi, MD of ANZ Support Services gave a very forceful speech and stole the hearts of the audience with her simple talk and interesting points on quality in service. She did not miss any opportunity to pull Shri Ramesh San’s leg by referring to how difficult it was improving quality in services compared to manufacturing.
- Shri Murlidhar Pundla, Director from Akshaya Patra who spoke on behalf of the CEO, Sridhar Venkat gave an interesting presentation on Akshaya Patra and the need to have quality right from the procurement of rice, atta, lentils etc. right upto the final point of prepared food being served on plates at the different distribution centres of Akshaya Patra.
- The talk by Umesh Krishnappa, Director of the Electric car program, Mahindra Reva on how the new electrical car is a high quality indigenously designed vehicle from Reva to hit the Indian roads was really eye-opening. The quality issues which were being tackled were interesting to hear. Subramanian PG , chair of ASQ Chennai spoke on quality holistically from different scenarios in the country and how it could focus more on customer satisfaction.
The great interest shown by the Chancellor in seeing the success of the event and in ensuring the delegates and participating colleges went satisfied with the arrangements and the logistics of the event made our day. The event started exactly at 9.30 AM and went on till 5 PM, with an our break for lunch and a 20 min break for the morning tea. The organisers and the participants were most happy, having benefited a lot from the event, which you dont get to host every now and then. ASQ being the foremost Quality organisation in the world, co-hosting a Quality summit with them is indeed a very privileged moment for Alliance University.
Finally were it not for the interest and enthusiasm shown by the student organisers and volunteers led by Sourabha, Deekshit and team from Alliance Business School, this event would not have been this great a success. They need a special clap for their dedication and sincerity !!
