The ceremony concluded with a speech by the Chief Guest for the evening, Mr.Suresh Narayanan, Chairman and Managing Director, Nestle India Limited. Congratulating everyone Mr. Narayanan reaffirmed Fr. Paul’s recommendation to remain ‘lifelong students’ by citing his recent learning’s during the turmoil which Nestle had to pass through. He shared valuable inputs with the students encouraging them to make the world a better place for themselves, for their families and the society while keeping in mind the mantra of ‘10 Cs’: Clarity, Competence, Credibility, Courage, Concentration, Creativity, Constraints, Compassion, Continuous Learning and Contentment; in order to stay ahead in life.

While advocating that they should work hard but not at the cost of sacrificing time for self, family or friends, he mentioned‘work life balance’ is a sort of misnomer as work is part of life. Thus, all one need to essentially do is to balance one’s life.
