Guest Lecture by Mr. Vasant Sanzgiri


SIMSREE was honoured to have Mr. Vasant Sanzgiri, alumnus of the 1986 batch on campus to address the batch of 2011-2013. Mr. Sanzgiri is currently the Group Head HR for Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Ltd and has worked for organizations like Taj Mahal Hotel, Modi Xerox, DCW Home Products Ltd., Owens Corning India Ltd and ICICI Prudential AMC Ltd. He has diverse experience of 25 years in the HR industry to his credit. 

He interacted with the newly inducted batch of students and urged them to make use of their two years at SIMSREE to identify and work on their weaknesses. He mentioned three things that the industry looks for in a student: Firstly, the type of projects the student has worked on and his/her learning out of the project; Secondly, the ability of the student to apply the theoretical knowledge that he/she has acquired during these two years; And finally the organizational roles taken up by the students, which demonstrate his/her ability to work in a group. While talking about his alma mater, Mr. Sanzgiri said that the institute has got something in its soul that is unique and those who join this institute have this soul incorporated into their own DNA. It was a very profound thought and made us very proud of being a SIMSREE’ite. 

He also urged the students to try and come out of their comfort zones and make the most of the ample opportunities that the institute provides for the overall development of the students. 

The session concluded with a question answer session, which helped clear our doubts and gain from his vast experience. We as students feel extremely obliged that he could spare time from his busy schedule to interact with us and give us something very valuable. We look forward to more such insightful sessions from Sir in the future.
