Dr. Alvin Rohrs shares 34 years’ experience as CEO of Enactus
Enactus India was privileged to have the benign presence of Dr. Alvin Rohrs – CEO & President of Enactus for the past 34 years, in its National Competition held in Mumbai this year. The long-term Enactus CEO who has now announced his retirement laid bare his heart in his speech on the occasion.
After a fitting introduction by PrashantRanade -Vice Chairman, Syntel, who caused a spark in the students’ hearts with his galvanizing words, Alvin was welcomed by the applauding audience excited to listen to his stories.
While talking about the idea of Enactus, he said that it transformed students from liabilities to assets: assets who then help the other so-called liabilities to emerge as assets. He also threw light on the problems he faced in his role and shared the innovative approaches he took to convert challenges into opportunities. Describing India as a nation with “1.3 billion assets”, he advised students to adopt the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and take upon themselves the task of achieving them in India.
As a man who led Enactus to become a global organization spread in 36 countries and empowering over 18,000,000 people, Alvin shared his invaluable advice on how to achieve what seems unachievable to most.
Catch a dose of motivation from Alvin – the man with an unwavering will by watching his address to the youth of India.
