Goafest 2019: "I am the nation's second best public speaker"

A Velumani of Thyrocare had the audience in splits during the opening address at Goafest 2019

Goafest 2019:
Sporting a sleeveless jacket, in a stark resemblance to the nation's best public speaker, A Velumani, creator and managing director, Thyrocare took the audience of Goafest 2019 on a trip down memory lane about the growth trajectory of his company.
 
In a session packed with punchlines, with Velumani announcing that his punchline was coming, he said he had three MBAs. First, the early stages of his life in CoiMBAtore, when he married a girl from KuMBAkonam and when he settled down in MuMBAi. 
 
The man who built a 'Brand around a gland' mentioned that his success was in spotting the opportunity. "If you see the opportunity, you will not see competitors."
 
"My university is my village. We had the luxury of poverty, stamina, courage, delta," he said speaking about his humble beginnings in the south of India. He said that his mantras to success were guts that led to grit which led to growth and finally attained glory. 
 
Speaking about his first experience with the corporate world, he said that we was rejected by dozens of potential employers for lack of experience when he was seeking his first job after graduation.
 
Now he claims that at his organisation, Thyrocare, for each of the 1,500 employees, he is the first employer.
 
Speaking about the origins of his organisation 25 years back, he pointed out that he managed it through both price and concept disruption before the telecom companies mastered the art.
 
He said he has indulged in a "Romance with risk" throughout the journey of his organisation. "If you do it the other way, risk with romance, it will result in a #Metoo," he said.
