KamathMaam’s Speech:(video/ audio would be posted soon after editing and upload)
KamathMaam stressed on the need for continuous thirst for knowledge and learning in our lives, which empowers each of us to contribute better to the world. Having said this about learning, he also mentioned that in today’s dynamic scenario, professionals and businessmen turn obsolete as the year ends. Further, it is essential for them to unlearn few things and update them with new knowledge that will keep them afloat in the coming year.

KamathMaam’s speech reflected the importance of teamwork when he dedicated all his achievements back to his team at ICICI.
