In his brief stay here at IIM Kozhikode, he delivered sessions and workshops covering a gamut of topics from consulting, women in business to how one can make most of his/her time at IIM. In association with Konsult, Consulting club of IIM Kozhikode, he conducted a workshop on ‘Introduction to management consulting and how to land up in a management consulting job’. The workshop saw a great response from students and the conference hall was filled beyond capacity. The agenda of the workshop was to provide insights in the consulting world and what are the skills required to be a good consultant and grow up the ladder.
Thereafter, he conducted a very candid session with students of first year of PGP course sharing his experience at IIM Kozhikode and also sharing tips on how to make the most of their time while at campus. He also had a brief session with the female students who were interested in starting a ‘Women in Business’ club at IIMK.
One of the most important sessions was the one conducted with all the Interest Groups and Students’ Committee members. The objective was to analyze the current standing of IIMK as a management institute and what all activities should be conducted which can improve it further. He showed the results of the in-campus survey that was conducted regarding the perception of students here in IIMK about the various facets of a B-school life. He then divided the committee and IG members into four groups and made them brainstorm over ideas which can help improve different areas including academics, networking, extracurricular activities and placements. Each group presented their ideas which were then critiqued by the rest of groups. It was an informative and interactive session with the output being a whole set of new ideas that committees and IGs should work upon so as to improve the functioning of various processes on campus.
Ronald also interacted with Director and other faculty members and had a discussion on how alumni involvement can be increased and can develop a symbiotic relationship between campus and alumni. Alumni Committee expressed gratitude to Ronald Philip for taking out time out of his busy schedule and conducting these highly informative sessions.
