The Invisible CEO By Krish


Last friday, I went for the Launch of the book 'The Invisible CEO' by A.G. Krishnamurthy at Crosswords, Ahmedabad. As many of you know, A G. Krishnamurthy has been the founder chairman and managing director of Mudra Communications and he began the agency with a start-up capital of Rs.35,000 and one client. In just nine years, Mudra became India’s third and largest Indian advertising agency. Krish won Mudra many Awards but uh oh, the management changed soon after Dhirubhai Ambani passed off. Krish soon became a Consultant for Reliance Infocomm at Bombay as far as I know and simultaneously, he started AGK Brand Consulting in Hyderabad. The Book turns out to be a deep reflection and thoughts of a person who led Mudra and whose his memories roll back to the past with his experiences of his entire career. Krish says, "Dream and You can Do it" & "No matter how different you are, or how much of an 'odd man out' you feel, if you believe strongly enough and long enough, it is possible to continue to be who you are and make a success out of doing what you love"

Read the Book, borrow or steal and you will find 'Leela', Krish's wife is the inspiration and no wonder, she is - because I've known her since years and she's one gem of a woman who is the power of his strength. Wondering how I can say this...well, Krish as we fondly called him, is my first Boss and its been my first interview for a job as 'Personal Steno-secretary' at Shilpi Advertising Ltd. Like Mr. Atul Tandan said at the Launch, Krish speaks so fast that we have to ask him to repeat to understand as when he speaks, his thoughts are ahead of his speech and sure, I agree as when he spoke, I could never understand and always made typing mistakes and got firing. But than, if he hadn't shouted, I wouldn't be what I am today!. Here's my Blog note on him which I wrote earlier.
