Member Interview with Shyam Sunder

We are delighted to bring you a Member Interview with Shyam Sunder, Vice President Marketing at TBO.COM. 


What’s your golden rule?

At work - Less is more. It’s easy to complicate and clutter. It’s hard to simplify and declutter. In life - Live to give. I am a big giver in all respects. Nothing matches the joy of giving. 


Who has been your biggest influence?

My Dad. An incredible human and perhaps one of the best salesmen ever! He was a Mechanical Engineer who helped modernize India in his small way. Passionate. Funny. Lived to eat. Travelled the world. And exceptionally talented in music. 


What is your most hated business expression?

"That’s easy. Get it done quick" or 'We need this yesterday". Hate the idea of quick fixes and compromises. 


What’s the smartest business idea you’ve ever had? 

None yet. Hence I don't have any business' of my own.


Which leader do you admire most and why?

Steve Jobs undoubtedly. His talent, passion, and drive to simplify the world of tech is unparalleled. Apple is and will be the greatest brand ever created thanks to him.


What’s your favourite word?



Tell us a secret.

I am a living encyclopedia of classic movies! Got a library of the 100 greatest movies at home. Watch or rewatch at least 2 movies a week. And there is no question I can't answer on the golden era of movies - the 50s.
