A special focus was given to developing soft skills training in the last quarter.
Special training program crafted for executive and assistant managers throughout the company.
Half-day training on ‘Creating a Great First Impression’ was conducted by Erica deSouza, an
image consultant and corporate trainer.
It covered aspects involved in meeting people for the first time, appropriate dressing and even
how to exchange business cards—as these small elements play a critical role in forming a firstimpression.
“The training session was superb. It helped in all
aspects of personality development, body language,
communication and dress code. The training taught
us the importance of dressing appropriately as per
the occasion. The explanation and the practical
demonstration of an effective handshake and business
card exchange were excellent,”Mr. Hariprasad Raut, Executive
“The crucial five-seconds rule—I never realized
that a person forms an impression of another
person or thing in the first 5 seconds of meeting
them. I also learnt that first impressions are not
merely based on appearance; behaviour and
communication also play a vital role,”Mr. Manoj Chavan, Executive Accounts
