An alumnus of the SP Jain School of Global Management (SPJSGM) has been conferred with the Topmost Storytellers Award by the World HRD Congress. Atul Anand, an alumnus of Global Masters in Business Administration (MBA) programme at the B-school, won the award for his book ‘Experiencing Life as a YOGI’ and his service to the society.
Anand, the president of SP Jain’s India west alumni chapter, is a certified digital transformation leader with more than 16 years of experience in digital transformation and transition. He has worked with several recognised organisations such as Toll Technology, Syngenta and Atos.
He is currently working with Toll Technology Centre, Pune as a programme manager in leading production readiness function and critical integrated technology (IT) separation initiative. He is also a research scholar at SP Jain where he is pursuing a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree which focuses on Blockchain in supply chain management.
Speaking about the award, Anand said, “I am grateful to the World HRD Congress for recognising and felicitating my book. This book has been a labour of love and has come out of my efforts to be more self-aware. The central concept of the book, YOGI, stands for Youthful, Observant, Great, and Individual. I believe that the secret to our happiness and equanimity lies within ourselves. I want to thank the people who have supported me through this journey, including my peers at SP Jain School of Global Management.”
Sharing his thoughts on Anand’s feat, K Maddulety, professor and deputy director of the DBA programme at SP Jain, said, “We are extremely pleased and proud of Atul’s achievement. Atul has been one of our most influential student mentors. His wisdom and life experiences can be discerned through this book. It is a must-read. We wish him all the best for his future endeavours.”
