Training and Development

Part 1: My First 90 days : Back To the School

My last 3 weeks have been amazing. After my decision to return to a corporate job and in a completely unfamiliar domain, I have been having a ball. On my first day of work, I gathered every bit of 19 years of my work experience in the banking and financial services domain, locked it firmly in a box and walked into my new organization with butterflies in my stomach. I joined the Interglobe Group as their Group CIO. Interglobe is in the travel, aviation , hospitality and retail business with plans to enter the education domain. This is completely unrelated to the domain experience I have carried so far, or rather enriched myself with ( as per my resume – what crap!).
