Canon India President & CEO Kazutada Kobayashi talks about the many firsts in his life -

MY FIRST ROLE MODEL
Not a person, but the learning of my 34 years of working, which is "Do your best". This learning has now become my mantra and I never fail to remind my staff about it

MY FIRST JOB
As a rookie staffer at Canon. I was assigned the job of a direct salesperson for photocopier machines by way of cold calling

MY FIRST BOSS
The regional business manager in the US (who is also my current boss). He taught me valuable lessons and helped me groom myself to work in a multinational company and imbibe professional work culture

MY FIRST PROMOTION
As manager of the photovoltaic product department, a newly established business division

MY FIRST DISAPPOINTMENT
When I was in high school, there was this cute batchmate on whom I had a massive crush. One day I wrote her a letter. I was eagerly awaiting a positive reply. Many days passed, but I did not get any reply
