I just love cars. In today’s world could you live without the use of a car?

Ever since Henry Ford, who had the vision of making the automobile affordable to a bigger number of consumers, the world has been pushed forward in the era of the automobile.Mankind has thus gained an accrued mobility with the car.This break through is compared by some anthropologists as a leap similar in impact to mankind as the invention the wheel. Mobility cuts through time. That is why the automobile was called time machine at some stage in its development.

Suburban living,hypermarkets and shopping malls found their birth & growth with the advent of the larger ownership of cars.
I invite you to a virtual tour of AUTOWORLD which is presently being held in Brussels.I took pleasure in going through the website to see at a quick glance the evolution of this industry.

With much nostalgia, I plunged back in the days when I had the burden of looking after the automobile sectors of Rogers Group. “How to reconcile the exigencies of financial performances(Economic Value Added) with the needs of the workers?” was my dilemma. Another chapter of my rich and varied working life to turn over the leaf. Yet another page where I drew so much joy and learning from the people I interacted with.

For the entrepreneurs, the lessons I retained were; love and respect your fellow co-workers;through sincere communications together you will travel a long way and producing economic value for the shareholders is never in opposition with workers welfare in spite of what the unions may seem to push for.
