NEW YORK, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hundreds of successful businessmen and women gathered on April 24th, 2013 at the U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce (USPAACC), Northeast Division, at the Morgan Stanley Headquarters in New York City to celebrate the awarding of the division's Top 10 Asian American Business Awards and to hear Russell Sarder, CEO of NetCom Learning speak about his beliefs on the 7 principles to business success. The networking reception included millionaires and billionaires, CEOs and business owners from the Asian American business sector who could easily relate to the importance of business success.
"I was honored to share my thoughts on the best ways to grow a business by speaking at the prestigious U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Top 10 Asian American Business Awards ceremony," said Russell Sarder, CEO of NetCom Learning.
"The USPAACC is an organization that helps entrepreneurs and businesses in the Asian American community to become successful contributors to the economy of the United States, and NetCom Learning is proud to be a member and a past winner of the Top 10 Asian American Business Awards," said Sarder.
The U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce is an educational organization that represents and promotes Asian American businesses. It is the oldest and largest national nonprofit organization of its kind representing East, South, Southeast Asian and Pacific Islanders. The organization seeks to provide business opportunities to minority businesses owned by Asian Americans and to help grow these businesses. Companies that are winners of the Top 10 Asian American Business Awards are organizations that have contributed to their communities and to the business world.
As related by Russell Sarder, he was recently interviewed for a magazine and one of the first questions was about how he grew his company and made it successful. He realized as he responded that he didn't have a completely clear picture on how NetCom Learning has become the successful multimillion dollar business that it is today. After thinking about it Russell came up with seven basic principles that he and his company adhered to in growing the company. The seven principles include: the right leadership, the right model, a clear understanding of market segmentation, access to capital, a focused marketing strategy, a culture of learning, and the right purpose. In his discussion he talked about the importance of having a clear understanding of why your business exists, that you have to have a passion for your business, that you remain focused on your target market, and that you know when and how to compete. He talked about how the purpose behind NetCom Learning is to promote the value of lifelong learning and that this purpose is what drives every decision made in the company. According to Sarder, "The pursuit of learning is in our company DNA, it is not just a marketing slogan, and it is what we do."
Learning Movement The Learning Movement and NetCom Learning's purpose to promote lifelong learning originates with Russell Sarder, the company's CEO. His passion for learning dominates his life and is at the center of his career as CEO. He is from Bangladesh, one of the poorest countries in the world, yet where all parents expect their children to excel in school. His love of learning was instilled in him at a young age. When he arrived in the United States he had little more than a few books and a couple of suitcases. He stayed committed to his education, and has been able to create growing multimillion dollar business where he gets to pass on his love of learning to others. One of the most important aspects of the Learning Movement is in providing access to interviews with top executives of businesses and nonprofit organizations, political leaders, and educators where they discuss their philosophy of how to achieve success.
An integral part of our nationwide learning movement is a series of short videos called "Learning Is..." where nearly a hundred people has shared what has inspired them in their lives, what learning has means to them and why the concept of lifelong learning is so important to individuals and to the future of our world. Some of the interviewees include: Dan Hoffman, former CEO of M5 Networks, Inc.; Russell Stevens, former partner of SS+K which developed the Livestrong Campaign and Obama's 2008 advertising strategies; co-author of best-selling "Green to Gold", Andrew Winston; Kaplan College former President, Bill Rosenthal; President and CEO of Corridor Consulting, Inc., Russ Edelman; and Susan Davis CEO of BRAC USA.
