If there is a clean cut concept of smooth transition then alumnus Sajith Nambiar’s story clearly reflects it. Having tried and tested his mettles from the sales domain to the event management field, Sajith can very well be perceived as a seasoned professional with thorough knowledge of various domains and sectors. He began his career as a professional dealing in the sales of financial products and gradually turned towards a profession that wasn’t even remotely related to it. He is presently deployed as an Assistant Manager in Ernst and Young and is taking care of the Event Management for internal clients of EY GSS (Global Shared Services).
Nambiar had always been keen on getting into the Event Management field and though he couldn’t do so initially he finally made his dream turn into reality. Today, he is living the life he had always dreamt of and contributes his achievements largely to his learning at SCMS Cochin School of Business. “In today’s world one needs dynamic managers for the growth and development of the firm as well as the society as a whole. A manager must have knowledge about the basic facts, logics and strategies and I personally feel that quality education from a good institute always pays. I am fortunate to be a SCMS Cochin School of Business alumnus which, in true sense, gave me a good foundation for my career”, he states.
Nambiar’s passion for the event management domain and the knowledge he gained at SCMS Cochin School of Business has helped him excel wherever he went. Talking about the role the B-school played in shaping up his career, Nambiar says, “I did get a strong foundation for stepping in to the management world. I can say it was the way we were trained at SCMS Cochin that helped a great extent – the deadlines for project works and assignments, the disciplined life and the positive approach that we were asked to follow made us evolve gradually from students to professionals. I still remember that I was an average student when I joined the school but the kind of exposure that I got here instilled confidence in me and helped me reach where I am today”. Interestingly, he even found his soul-mate at SCMS Cochin School of Business. Thus the place holds even more significance for him.
Though Nambiar has had his share of professional ups and downs, he is content with the way his career has progressed. Besides, working at a good position in Ernst and Young, he is also working on a Big Budget Malyalam movie titled Dolphin Bar. He would be handling the marketing and promotional activities for the same.
Nambiar’s message to the student at SCMS Cochin School of Business: “Each dream begins with a dreamer; we all have within us the strength the patience and the passion to reach where we want to, so follow your heart and live your dreams… better late than never!”
