Meaningful Work Starts With Love
Unhappy in your job? Not sure what career path to take? Consider starting with love.
In this unique, multi-media presentation, Vikas Narula, will take you on a journey of inspiration, self-discovery and entrepreneurship. Drawing examples from his own life and the life of others, Vikas gets you thinking about the story you want to write for yourself.
Hope, empowerment, creativity and passion. While those qualities tend to die a slow death in many work environments, Vikas makes the case for an alternative. He outlines a clear path to re-kindle the creative, entrepreneurial spirit that is latent within all of us.
If you are looking to add more meaning to your life and career, this is a talk you won’t want to miss.
Vikas spent 15 years working for two local start-ups and along the way “stumbled upon” his own business idea. He nurtured the idea as a “hobby” for a few years and quit his job in 2009 to pursue it full time.
Seeking professional and economic success, the entrepreneurial journey taught him so much more. Changed by the path of love, Vikas is intent on sharing his story and inspiring others to follow their heart.
His hobby-turned-business-venture is called Keyhubs (www.keyhubs.com) – a Minneapolis-based management software and consulting firm. Some of Keyhubs’ clients include Accenture, Medtronic, Thrivent Financial, Boston Scientific and Bremer Bank. Their work has been featured in Forbes, Upstart and Twin Cities Business magazine.
Vikas earned his MBA from Duke University and holds a degree in computer science from Maharishi International University. He was listed among 100 leaders to “help you thrive” by Twin Cities Business magazine. He is also Founder of Neighborhood Forest – a social venture dedicated to giving free trees to school children every Earth Day.
