Corporate Connect Series – Managing Director, Mondelez Shares His Thoughts on How to Lead in a Successful Career

Usman Muneer, Managing Director, Mondelez was cordially invited to IBA on December 14, 2017 to conduct a session on "How to lead in a Successful Career".

Usman has over a decade of experience in managing consumer businesses across several international markets, including the Middle East, Africa and Pakistan. He is a graduate from the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) and joined Procter & Gamble (P&G) where he spent the first 12 years of his career before joining Mondelez Pakistan at a Marketing Director and then taking on the role of the Country MD.

He initiated the session by briefly describing about his work experiences. He then discussed in detail about 'change'. He advised students to be adaptive to change and must know what direction to follow. Passion, need and skill helps an individual to create a purpose. In this era of cut throat competition, where even maps are becoming volatile, he further urged the students to have a sense of direction and purpose.

While making career decisions, Usman suggested students to be internally satisfied at what they are doing or intend to do and aim to given their very best. However, with time, this is totally normal to have new goals and aims. This is important to know that it is truly the human beings who have control over themselves and their responses.

The audience showed interest by discussing about their career plans and queries. Usman was kind enough to mentor them during the session.

We are humbly thankful to Mr. Usman Muneer for conducting such a thought provoking session.
