My Thoughts ...
Competition is a state-of-mind! Marketing is a way-of-life! Happiness is success! Problem with Strategy is that very few get it right, most use fluff! A leader is one who inspires by making a difference in the lives around! Forget about being illegal, we can't afford to be less-legal! Easy to have been born as human, then why it is so difficult to live as a human? You don't have to be rich, royal or irrational; just be a giving person! Connect at the being level, communicate to the soul! Pursue continuous improvements, but persist on innovation! Work where you are celebrated, not tolerated! Get the big picture, but deliver one that is magnanimous! Always remember the word "blame" as "boomerang" To find meaning of your life, just ask what life expects of you? Choices, inturn, create concern. Right strategy helps pick the right choice! We will be far more green, healthy and sustainable if we add 2 spoons of "contentment" to every growth-hungry diet on Wall Street!

humbling moments …

a few kind words here with gratitude and humility …
“For all of Venu’s accomplishments, experience and expertise, he is also the most wonderful person – intelligent, thoughtful, dynamic, talented, and very well-rounded, and more importantly a giving person! I’ve had the pleasure of working with him in a variety of capacities for 5+ years now and have been extremely impressed by his ability to do so many things at once – both at strategic and execution level. He is always among the first to volunteer his time and effort to assist those in need. Then he is with you 100% in working through the corrective action as a partner.
I know for the fact that he has re-invented himself several times over, and he is one of the rare breeds that combines the core culture and with latest of technology solutions for business development – both domestic & international. 

If you want a top flight, A-list Executive or Consultant, Venu is the person. If you get a chance to work with Venu, or for him, take it, right away. I would recommend him wholeheartedly to any company that would deserve him! ”  Michael Bluth – 2013 – Intl Executive, Consultant (Former Managing Director of Del Labs)

“I had been the CEO of Verizon Information Services. During my career, I have met few who I would entrust with leadership roles of a company that has become culturally competitive while dealing with technological issues that change at a speed never before experienced. I strongly recommend Venu Chepur with a high level of confidence for all the ‘C’ level or Advisory roles.
Venu is the individual who I highly regard as a leader that can face the challenges of today, tomorrow, and in the distant future comes with a record that cannot be challenged. He has worn many hats and done so with a leadership quality that spans across emerging markets, sluggish economies, and global competition. He is the stakeholder of any company that sees its future as competitive and in need of a leader who challenges the status quo and ready to transform.

Venu will be an asset to any organization that accepts the premise where the definition of leader has changed. As a human he possesses qualities that are rare to find, especially within one individual; and a giving person that can charge your set up with positive energy!   Donato Marinari – 2012 International Telecom Senior Level Executive and Board Member
