Indo-Canadian Chamber of Commerce's
Young Professionals
"10-80-10 principle" Workshop

CMO, Serial entrepreneur Sanjay Singhal of Simply Audiobooks on his life’s experiences and the road to success  

On November 27, 2007, Sanjay Singhal, Chief Innovator at Aquanta Group and CMO of Simply Audiobooks, a successful serial entrepreneur shared insights on his journey to success at a workshop organized by the Young Professionals committee of the Indo-Canadian Chamber of Commerce. He focused on tips to startup and succeed in business and was attended by over one hundred young professionals of Indo-Canadian descent.


The bi-monthly professional workshop coupled with "Breakfast with CEO" is part of the committee's vision to help upcoming young Indo-Canadian professionals 'Explore, Evolve & Excel' in their professional and entrepreneurial pursuits. The event combo is the first of its kind geared towards Canadian Young Professionals of South Asian decent.


The workshop held at the Ryerson Business School in downtown Toronto included networking session, remarks by event sponsor, Patrick Desouza of OCE Canada followed by an interactive keynote speech by Sanjay Singhal. 


Sanjay shared his insight into best business practices. His talk revolved around 10% of things one should avoid to be on way to success and other 10% things one should definitely do to facilitate this success.


Sanjay Singhal spoke elaborately about his post university days, entrepreneurial efforts, his corporate business experiences and the path taken up to his present day position. He went into depths exemplifying his work experiences with firms such as; Nortel Networks, Qualcomm, Unidyn, Scientific Atlanta as well as about his personal business startups, such as Mpathix, Graboid and finally Simply Audiobooks.


He shared the key mistakes he made in his startup ventures, tips for succeeding in business and most importantly the large focal point of the evening – advice to young entrepreneurs. 

“Do not expect good advice on your business plan unless its paid advice” he said. “80% of the success lies in just showing up” these were just some of the strong remarks made by Sanjay Singhal. Statements that are sure to linger in the mind of the audience.


On behalf of the Young Professionals' committee at Indo Canada Chamber of Commerce, I would like to bring to your attention our recent concluded event:
