Frequently Asked Questions

What will I learn from this video?

These are exciting times for you if you are in University or have recently graduated. There is a new definition of normalcy and things are changing at such a fast pace that its hard to keep up.

But some things will never change including what it takes to nurture a successful career. After 25 years of working in world class organisations and eventually in my own company, there are a few things I wished I knew when I started my career.

I have condensed it into 3 things I wished I knew. All related to the concept of VALUE.

And maybe they can be useful for you too. At the end of this session I hope that you will have a clearer sense of what is needed to become a valued employee in any organisation.

Who is this for? I’m not a fresh graduate. Will I still benefit from the session?

I think so. I believe that even those who have worked for years can benefit from the sharing. In fact, I believe the sharing will benefit you especially if you do not possess a degree.

Is there a fee? Do I need to register? Do you want my email id?

No. Its streamed on YouTube and completely free. All you need is a browser or the YouTube app on your phone. And this is not for generating leads.

How do I view it?

The YouTube video link will be published here by 9 AM 14 June 2020. Please return to this page at that time. Or you can go to my FB Page. The link will also be published there at the same time.

Can my friends view it?

Of course. This is open for all. Please share this link with your friends or family who you think can benefit from the session.

Can I ask questions?

You are encouraged to ask questions through the chat window. If you have any questions you want to ask on the topic before the session, you can leave it at the comment section on this page. However you need to be logged into Notion to do that.

What Is The Post Show Virtual Workshop on Zoom?

This is part of our experiment. We want to organise a more interactive session after the show ends. It will be a video conference call format where everyone’s video will be turned on. This gives for a more interactive and intimate session. The link will be published during the show.

Will there be any materials for the session?

Any materials in terms of articles, worksheets, videos etc etc will be shared on a Notion Page. The link is

When Your Feedback Upsets Me

Good feedback and bad feedback.
Positive feedback and negative feedback.
Constructive feedback and destructive feedback.

We choose what to do with the feedback and everything we are not happy with is either bad, negative or destructive.

In this vlog, I share why that approach is wrong and will likely rob you of the things you need to know to truly transform from a feedback.

Change Starts With Me

I want to share a true story. This happened to me nearly 10 years ago. I was conducting a workshop and one of the participants was being extremely disruptive.

I was so stressed out that I nearly lost it.

Watch the video to find out how how I handled it.

Vlog 003 – The Red Challenge

I decided to go on a walkabout and do a Red Challenge.

What’s a Red Challenge?

Its where I take pictures with the colour red as a theme. It’s more challenging than I thought it would be.

I also talk about some of the gear I use which includes the Panasonic GH2, the Sony A7 II with 24mm Samyang f2.8 lens, the Olympus Tough TG870, the Panasonic FZ300 and the Zoom H1N handy recorder.


I also introduced a new sountrack which I intend to use for future intros and outros.

First Time Vlogging In Public

My first time EVER. I was waiting for my wife to finish her shopping and I just decided to switch the camera on and start vlogging. Of course I though everyone was watching but in truth, nobody cared. So I’m a happy camper. Big lesson. Check exposure and white balance.

Vlog 002 – Setting Direction

This vlog is about setting direction as to where I want this channel to go. I googled on checklists and items to think about when starting a YouTube Channel and I came accross this article

It gave me some things that I need to start thinking about including:

Step 1 – Choose Your Audience
Step 2 – Invent Your Vlogging Brand
Step 3 – Create Your Channel Art
Step 4 – Plan your vlog content
Step 5 – Get Comfortable On Camera
Step 6 – Find Your First Subscribers
Step 7 – Network and Collaborate

I don’t have answers to most of the things above so the next few days, weeks and months is about looking for these answers. There are a lot of technical issues with this video including:
– framing and composition (my hands looks like its separate from my body)
-multicam (I actually set a second camera so that I can experiment with a multicam setup. That failed miserably)
– I wish the Panasonic FZ300 had a wider lens.

I think I may now need to switch to the Sony A7II with 16-35mm

The video also lacks:
– a story
– music
– proper intro and outro
– b-roll apart form the screenshot

The big plus though is I am pushing forward and gradually becoming more myself in front of the lens.
