Behind the scenes @ LAST-BENCH! : Website update

Behind the scenes @ LAST-BENCH! is  an 'inside look' into the happenings at our start-up. Here you'll get to read about our brainstorming sessions, coffee breaks, 'whiteboard' drawings and most importantly connect with our team. It's almost as if you're right here with us! Feel free to comment, have a laugh and give us some useful feedback :)...

S.M. Parekh Memorial debate competition at Sardar Patel Institute of Technology : Sponsored by Last-Bench!

A debate competition allows for enterprising and intelligent minds to take stage and express their thoughts and views to an enthusiastic audience. This one was no different.  Last-Bench! had the privilege of sponsoring the annual S.M. Parekh Memorial debate competition at SPIT and, like everyone else present, we were left speechless by the quality of the competition and the array of talent at the event.

'After one look at this planet any visitor from outer space would say ''I want to see the manager." '

William S. Boroughs

What really makes a good manager? What skills and training do you require? How much experience is needed? How can you apply what you're learning now to a leadership position in the future? One comprehensive answer to worrisome questions - MANAGE WHAT!

'The current business environment is extraordinarily challenging, competitive and dynamic. You must be over qualified, have multiple degrees, have years of experience and seize opportunities!'

At Last-Bench! we like to call this the 'Parrot line'. Why? Because everyone picks it up from someone else, will talk about it at length but won't do anything about it. In fact people don't know what the solution to the problem is and constantly worry about how success can become a guarantee? The solution is getting lucky at the right time and till then churn on, persist and hope for that special break. Right?  Wrong! Here at Last-Bench! we like to say- 'Today's world is highly competitive, YOU must carve a niche for yourself!' See how we played around with words? See how the emphasis is suddenly on YOU to make that next big leap? Whether at home, at college or at your workplace, people will constantly give you advice (c'mon we've all given and received it!) but in reality advice is just food for thought and action is what makes the difference!

The 'Teach for India' Workshop!

Since the time our TFI liaison confirmed the workshop for the 4th of August, we have been super excited and eagerly looking forward to not only meeting the TFI folks but also delivering the workshop. We ensured everything was organized and set in order. It was funny to see Sajid double and triple check to ensure there would be no goof-ups :)
