My guest today is Venkatesh Valluri. Venky is founder and chairman of both Valluri Technology Accelerators and Valluri Change Foundation, both of which he established following over 30 years of senior leadership experience in technology-based multinationals such as HP, GE and latterly Ingersoll Rand, where he was Chairman until 2015.
I spoke to Venky face-to-face in Delhi, India.
We talk about the myth of trade-offs between impact and profit, about being entrepreneurial within large corporates, the personal epiphany that led to him leaving to create his own company, the centrality of having positive social impact and that whilst a good business brand is important, the long-term building of a strong, authentic personal brand is much more so.
