Business Plan for INVESTORS (US$ 10 Million) THE STARWORKS LEADERSHIP CENTRE at Goa, India. Creating a Global Leadership Institution
Setting up a series of brick-n-mortar centers is going to be critical to our efforts. Modeled around something of a high-end 7 star Resort, or Campus where our Learning and Research teams can be based. This would facilitate interaction between them and the Leaders. Specially designed for the purpose of Leadership Development and Leadership Networking, it would beat all current hotels and resorts that serve the current needs of Corporate Events, Offsites, Outbounds, Award Functions, Leadership Summits and Corporate Networking and Social and Entertainment events. The Centre look and feel is crirical to our position … the confluence of old and new .. While one half is designed as a traditional Indian ashram, the other half is like a ultra modern set-up. Location of land is next to a river or a beach.

Learning, Activities, Sporting, Recreation and high levels of interaction needs to be ensured. We can also use this center to host and entertain our Alliance Partners, Guest-speakers etc. A place, where a comfortable stay can be assured to our clients and their teams. Goa, India in this geographical region (South East Asia) will be out first centre , global headquarters and shared services hub.

Every year, for the first 8 years, a new center in a different part of the globe will be added. These centers will be our assets that will appreciate, grow and endure over time. Possible other centers (not in final order) can be in;
Hawaii (North America)
Rio de Janeiro ( South America)
London (Europe)
Dubai (Middle East and North Africa)
Durban (South Africa)
One in Australia (Pacific)
Singapore (Asia)

Starworks Leadership Centre will be a sprawling campus spread over about 50 Acres of land (4000 * 50 Sq Mtrs)
It will be a queer mix of Old and New. With one part being like a traditional Ashram and the other half being completely modern and state-of-the-art. Proving exotic massages and world cuisine.
It will have a Club, Learning areas, Meeting rooms, Auditoria and untouched forest or orchard areas.
It will also have Horses and other animals to give it a Farm feel.
It will have a Helipad to cater to our high-end customers.
It will have a Sea-facing or Riverside element to allow water-sport and fishing.

Transcript of "Starworks leadership centre- investor presentation"

  1. 1. Business Plan “The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world's problem.” -Mahatma Gandhi STARWORKS LEADERSHIP CENTRE AND NETWORK has been conceived as a plan to enable mankind achieve its ‘true potential ‘ through its Leaders, starting with a peaceful world.
  2. 2. When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. - taken from Paulo Coelho's wonderful book: The Alchemist
  3. 3. Executive Summary What’s interesting about this business proposal? 1. First of all the scale is Global and so is the spirit. 2. There is a sincere desire to be the World No. 1 in what we choose to do! 3. Contemporariness in Practices is key, and so is fresh and original research in the domain we choose to operate in. 4. Speed is of essence in execution. 5. Highly integrated communication is critical. What else is important? Building highly successful personal brands for our delivery team members is. Internal development is, so as to build Champions. In some cases, the market itself needs to be developed first, hence Evangelism is key in the beginning. Individualized and customized service is necessary so as to retain and develop key clients. Relationships are key, hence the importance of spending quality time and money with clients. Life and Leadership are not fragmented! Hence the need to be inclusive when it comes to the various sectors – Business, Government, Military, Non-government, Politics, Public Service and Public Sector. In short, since the target audience is extremely sophisticated and ‘high-end’, nothing, nothing but the best will do! And where does this start? In your mind of course ..its all about living these principles and making this thinking an integral part of our personalities. Think about it. Does it help to standardize some values? What values are required to operate a start- up? What does it take to advise Nations on Leadership Strategies?
  4. 4. Overview Executives are looking to strengthen their leadership development pipelines and programs: Approximately one-third (30%) of executives surveyed ranked developing leaders and succession planning as today’s top talent priority—the highest of any response in the survey. A nearly equal percentage (29%) predicted it will likely remain the top talent concern over the next three years. As talent demands go increasingly global, the pressure is building to create talent strategies that can both scale (for size and efficiency) and focus on regional markets. Only 17% of executives surveyed believe their talent programs are “world-class across the board,” while 83% acknowledge that significant improvements need to be made. Executives who call their talent efforts “world-class” are more likely to report —by margins of 20 percentage points or more—that their companies are investing in these programs at a “high” level. A majority of executives surveyed say performance management (73 %), talent assessment (72%) and high-potential employee development (71%) are core talent priorities that will likely increase over the next 12 months. These priorities clearly dominate new hiring initiatives across the board, including the hiring of experienced managers, new campus hires and contract/part time workers. Source: Deloitte -Talent Edge 2020—a longitudinal survey series conducted in collaboration with Forbes Insights. This January 2012 edition of Talent Edge 2020, Talent Edge 2020: Redrafting talent strategies for the uneven recovery.
  5. 5. Overview ...Continued New research shows organizations with high-impact leadership development programs are developing a new kind of leader, and are seven times more effective at delivering improved business and talent results than organizations with less sophisticated leadership development functions. Bersin & Associates‘ new study, High-Impact Leadership Development for the 21st Century. The study is based on surveys and interviews with more than 300 leadership development and learning & development managers around the world.

  7. 7. Strategy Cash Cows will help us get revenues over the first 3-4 yrs. Following which high growth will come from new business areas and emerging market that we would have invested in developing. For the first 1-2 yrs, we need to Identify and Collaborate with Global Leaders with high visibility in Media to sample our offerings. This will help gain endorsements and help establish our Credentials. Access to Global Leaders for this exercise is crucial. Mutual benefit and assured Growth needs to be used as a strategy to ensure high involvement from these Leaders in the Business.
  8. 8. A short break to go into the story of Starworks Leadership One day I decided to quit... quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality. I wanted to quit my life. I went to the woods to have one last talk with my Master, my Guru. Master, I said. Can you give me one good reason not to quit? His answer surprised me. Look around, He said. Do you see the fern and the bamboo? Yes, I replied. When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo He said. In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit. In year four, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. I would not quit. He said. Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth. Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant...But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall. It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive. I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle. He said to me. Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you. Don't compare yourself to others He said. The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern. Yet they both make the forest beautiful. Your time will come, The Guru said to me. You will rise high How high should I rise?, I asked. How high will the bamboo rise?, He asked in return. As high as it can, I answered Yes. He said, Give me glory by rising as high as you can. I left the forest and bring back this story. Starworks Leadership was conceived in 2008, and launched in August the same year. Within 2 weeks of its launch, the big crash of 2008 happened. Within days all Leadership Hiring, Leadership Development and Leadership Consulting budgets were frozen and growth and development activity literally came to a standstill. Which was seen by the owner/promoter as an Opportunity. A brilliant opportunity to, like the proverbial Bamboo in the story above, to focus on not revenue generation, but Institution Building: 1. Focus on refining the plan and service offerings, 2. To focus on the brand building of Starworks on the internet and in social media, 3. To build the personal brand and brand association of the promoter with the Starworks and the Leadership Business, 4. To aggressively Network among other Learning and Leadership Professionals and Business Leaders of repute, 5. To deeply research the highly fragmented and still evolving market for HR and Leadership Consulting, Talent Development, Leadership Training and Leadership Hiring
  9. 9. Physical Infrastructure Creating a Global Leadership Institution Setting up a series of brick-n-mortar centers is going to be critical to our efforts. Modeled around something of a high-end 7 star Resort, or Campus where our Learning and Research teams can be based. This would facilitate interaction between them and the Leaders. Specially designed for the purpose of Leadership Development and Leadership Networking, it would beat all current hotels and resorts that serve the current needs of Corporate Events, Offsites, Outbounds, Award Functions, Leadership Summits and Corporate Networking and Social and Entertainment events. The Centre look and feel is crirical to our position … the confluence of old and new .. While one half is designed as a traditional Indian ashram, the other half is like a ultra modern set-up. Location of land is next to a river or a beach. Learning, Activities, Sporting, Recreation and high levels of interaction needs to be ensured. We can also use this center to host and entertain our Alliance Partners, Guest-speakers etc. A place, where a comfortable stay can be assured to our clients and their teams. Goa, India in this geographical region (South East Asia) will be out first centre , global headquarters and shared services hub. Every year, for the first 8 years, a new center in a different part of the globe will be added. These centers will be our assets that will appreciate, grow and endure over time. Possible other centers (not in final order) can be in; 1. Hawaii (North America) 2. Rio de Janeiro ( South America) 3. London (Europe) 4. Dubai (Middle East and North Africa) 5. Durban (South Africa) 6. One in Australia (Pacific) 7. Singapore (Asia)

  14. 14.
