A Report of a Tea Talk on Businesses of the Future


“I’ve been laboring over the theme (of this evening’s talk) on Business of the Future and quite honestly I don’t know what is going to happen in the future. However, what I would like to dwell on is on what I fear might happen and what I hope will not happen in the future.”


These ominous opening remarks of Sarosh Ghandy, Director, Caux Initiatives for Business, was the kick-off of what turned out to be an interesting evening of experience sharing. Mr. Ghandy and Vivek Asrani, MD, Kaymo Fastener Company formed what Puan Shahreen Kamaluddin called, “a wellorchestrated duet.”


Following a sumptuous spread at the tea table, a talk had beenorganized at the UEM Learning Centre on March 28, 2015 by Initiatives of Change (IofC) Malaysia. About 50 participants from all walks of life attended this two-hour programme that focused on the theme, ‘Business of the Future – Beyond Compliance to Shared Ethics’. K. Haridas , Chair, IofC Malaysia after welcoming the guests handed over the event to the Moderator, Puan Kamaluddin, a renowned author and Advisor – Fellow of the Institute of Public Relations Malaysia.


Beginning with the traditional IofC songs, a small motley group brought spice to the event with their message-packed lyrics as they sang melodiously, “There are no strangers in the world; only friends we haven’t met.” Though unplanned, the song laid the foundation to Initiatives of Change Malaysia A Report of a Tea Talk on Businesses of the Future what Mr. Ghandy was to say minutes later. Building on his opening remarks, Sarosh Ghandy spoke of his concern with the indiscriminate use of technology in society today. “I am not against technology,” he clarified. “I use it myself. However what frightens me is our dependence on it to the extent of helplessness. While it definitely takes us forward, we make
ourselves slaves of it.” Switching gears he shared how each individual has a mind. “Yet we forget that we also have a soul. We use our minds to such an extent that our actions deprive us of living to our fullest potential.” ....for the full report please click here
