Hi Friends,
                                              Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.
                                                  There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"
                                       With regards,
                                       Hemen Parekh

PREPARING TO LAUNCH 3P EXECUTIVE SEARCH

Building Senior Executive Database :
We need one full - time person for this activity .Deepa has started this activity last week !
His entire time should be spent scanning newspapers/ business magazines/ directories/ annual - reports etc. to pick out information about senior executives and enter into computer. Or he could just spend all of his own time "highlighting" such information and handover to EDP Room for data - entry. This alternative may be better.
To begin with we could start with a "Clerk" - level person who is intelligent or even a retired person, but I feel a young junior person should better.
In most cases, executive data picked up from newspaper & magazines will give us, only
       . Name of the executive
       . His designation
       . Name of current Company/ Employer
Occasionally, it may tell us
       . Where (which company) he was
       . What (designation) he was
In EXECUTIVE SEARCH (Head - Hunting) business, even such past data is very important & must be captured.
