In 1997 and the year before ..twice..I had the opportunity of participating in a seminar conducted by Eric Pillinger from Tack International a corporate consultancy institution in the UK.
Both the seminars were held at the Holiday Inn now called Le Meredian. I happened to contact Eric much later and many corporate institutions of Bangalore benefited from the seminar ...there were participants from KPMG , Ingersollrand to name a few institutions and many owners of Small scale institutions.
He largely demonstrated the significance of Development and Motivation as two important planks to understand Managerial dynamics and situations. I had a personal rapport with Eric and we used to talk for hours after the Seminar and got to learn Managerial wisdom from him.
