The effectiveness of a leader depends on his attitude. The root of personality is the way in which a person develops his value and belief system and the way he looks at himself.

The various problems a brand could face can be – Loss of Market position, sales, drop in share price, the brand not performing and many more. Thus the change required has to be so phenomenal that it clearly specifies what it exactly is, what it can do for the consumers and what it can give to make the consumers want it even if the need does not exist at that time. All this has to be consumer centric in today’s world.
Mr. Raibole conveyed that an attractive marketing technique should be either a functional or a rational strategy or should be able to play on the consumers psyche, i.e. on an emotional front. For this the marketing campaign should be creatively expressed so as to leave an impression in the mind of the market it targets. The power of a brand should be respected because it can decide the fate/future of any product
Thus to get a desired response the correct stimulus is required for a successful campaign. And we as budding managers need to develop a sense of understanding of what might appeal to the population targeted, in a completely new way, in this already saturated market. He suggests us to look through different lenses at the world around us, to read up a lot and always ask the question-why, to hone our skills.

The blood donation drive organized on the 31st of July at SIMS was a success and that would not have been possible without all of you. The event was conducted by Pranay, in collaboration with SIHS and SCHC and it was the initiative of our Founder, Dr. S.B. Mujumdar; we are grateful to him for giving us such an opportunity.
Team Pranay believes that to know that you have saved a life is a feeling unparalleled and that is just how, we are sure, all you SIMSites felt today. While it may have been just a drop in the ocean, even one life saved means a world of good done. It was amazing to see all you SIMSites come together for this noble cause. Quite a few of you were donating blood for the first time, and Team Pranay appreciates the fact that you left behind your apprehensions and took the initiative of coming forward to help someone whose existence you are not even aware of.
We had 250 donors and it was delightful to have the staff members and students of the Symbiosis Art College also make a contribution. The donation camp was from 10 am in the morning to 5pm in the evening, students had to wait in line for hours yet, not once did we feel that the enthusiasm went low. A team of doctors and nursing assistants ensured that the donors were fit, with a healthy hemoglobin count and blood pressure level and they were also given refreshments to re-energize them; the donors were provided with a certification of appreciation as well.
Team Pranay would like to thank you each one of you for making a difference and most importantly staff members of SCHC for giving us all this opportunity. Not just ours, but you will have the gratitude of the person whose life your contribution will save when in dire need and we hope this contribution only grows in magnitude hereon.
