Are You Talent Berry Gen 1

  1. 1. Foreword So you did it again. The last one I remember receiving at TTT was your Training 101. Short, sweet and all encompassing. In this day and age, nothing but short and sweet would work, but who else would know this better than YOU. Although I didn’t keep a tab on my score, but yes, the questions were deep, brain-tickling and intuitive, Are you making you THINK about yourself and the world around you. What I especially liked was the relevance to both the everyday ‘atom’ and ‘bit’ lives (to quote Jeff Jarvis of What TalentBerry Would Google Do fame & Chris Anderson, the author of The Long Tail and FREE). I am sure, it will strike a chord in people who didn’t know where suddenly the world was gen? moving (read running) towards! Keep up the great work, Farhad. God Bless You. Nuruddin Abjani (CEO - TYRE SALES CORPORATION)

What are you reading? •This book has nothing directly to do with the brand This is a witty, fun fulfilled, mind boggling, rib tickling BlackBerry.. Or for that matter nothing even indirectly! (depending on your sense of humor) e-book, with a serious and rude awakening. •It has nothing to do with mobile phones or cellular/telecom providers It is a small step towards describing the kind of people we have, or need to have, as we attempt to survive in the 21st •The word TalentBerry is casually used to explain the century… leave alone enter the 22nd century. It explains modern, truly talented, fast paced and amazingly ‘Talented People ‘in 50 exciting and subtle ways! connected and networked individuals. This to me are very Blackberry features It is a crazy world. Confusion tops any other state of ‘being’. We want to work but we want to be with family. •If you do not know terms and acronyms used in this We say we are passionate about what we do but then have book: a) It just shows how networked and updated a facebook updates that say “TGIF’ or ‘OMGIM’. Get clarity !! professional you are; and b) Go learn! Don’t ask me or think you are fit for modern world by giving yourself To add some life and excitement to your reading , I have high scores!! created a scoring mechanism as well. Go ahead, try understanding what the statements mean and how much •I am not rude …just too ignited! of it best describes you. It is non – scientific but interesting. At the end it is not about what you scored but how Disclaimer provoked you felt… Enjoy! 02 03 farhad.karamally@navitus.biz farhad.karamally@navitus.biz
