  1. First let me congratulate the organizers of the Summit and thank the successful entrepreneurs who are coming to share their secrets of success.

    Now the ball is at the feet of Young and Mid level Sikh entrepreneurs who should take this golden opportunity to learn from the success of those who have proven their success and who are coming and willing to share their experiences and strategies to be successful.

    It has been my experience that Sikhs and Indians at large appear to have little interest in enhancing their knowledge by attending public training courses/seminars as many may consider a waste of their time and some cash but fail to realize that wanting success must be accompanied by commitment and some investment. Chinese [by their business culture] and Malays [by Govt/Corporate financing] are the ones who enhance their knowledge via attending as many training seminars as they can even when the subject may not be directly related to their interest or duties.
    In the Amir Khan Bollywood movie ‘3 IDIOTS’ he said KNOWLEDGE IS EVERYWHERE BUT ONE MUST HAVE INTEREST.
    Now our Sikh entrepreneurs should show their interest by making this Summit a success as only then will the organizers and speakers will repeat and continue such programmes.
