The collective team efforts of Directors and Staff members made RUDSETIs to grow day by day.
Lot of changes are taking place in the country as women are coming forward to work in all sphere of life along with men. Equal opportunities are created for both men and women to work together. RUDSETIs are responsible for transforming so many people from ordinary youth to excellent entrepreneurs and successful business magnets. If the entrepreneur wants to become successful, he/she should try to find out new areas where competition is not there. Entrepreneurs should earn through honesty, follow principles and hard work and not to carry away by short term profits. The goal should be long term and realistic. Change in the attitude is the basic, which leads to success in every business.
Quoting an example he said that If the bus is new, but the driver is old man, bus will not reach its destination in time. Similarly, if the bus is old, but the driver is young man, in such cases also bus will not reach its destination in time. On the same lines, if the Director is young, but the Staff are old, Institute will not achieve the target in time. If the Director is old, but the Staff are young, Institute will also not achieve the target in time. There should be a proper combination of both Director and Staff in the Institute to achieve the desired result. He called upon the participants to take care of the trainees and see that they can go back with common commitment that he/she will succeed. He wished that the Conference would increase the efficiency and commitment of the participants thereby the success rate in future.
