16 May Narayana Peesapaty and Sridhar Ganesh at The Garage Stories
On the 15th of May, we conducted the third session of The Garage Stories which was a huge success. We have invited Narayana Peesapati, founder of Bakey Foods, and Sridhar Ganesh, founder of Centro as our speakers, and the event was quite an interactive one.
You must have heard of the edible cutlery concept that is trending in our country and beyond these days. Narayana Peesapati, also a TEDx speaker, is the inventor of edible cutlery that is made with a mix of different flours. In order to prevent the excess usage of plastic, Narayana has come up with this novel concept that has paved a distinct path for conservation of nature. His talk about his journey and how he began was extremely engaging. One of the greatest learnings he has undergone in this journey was how he overcame his ego. He said that he kept growing leaps and bounds after overcoming it.
Everyone is familiar with the famous footwear empire, Centro. And obviously building a brand like Centro isn’t a cakewalk. It comes with a lot of hard work and wonderful planning. Sridhar Ganesh’s talk entirely revolved on how an organization or a product should approach their brand and do the brand building. He mentioned that Centro was very frugal about the planning as they chose only the strategic locations for advertisements etc.
The videos for the session would be out soon. To watch the videos, you can follow us here.
