Background of Corridor Conversations
Welcome to Corridor Conversations! I have been blogging since 2005 on my personal Blog ‘Life’s Little Secrets’ before I actually set up ‘Corridor Conversations’ in 2010. The idea to start a professional blog was born out of corridor conversation I was having with a colleague of mine, which inspired me to write my first post related to my professional interest and hence its name ‘Corridor Conversations.’
Corridor Conversations is my attempt to set up a platform for myself and hopefully in the future for other technology marketers to share their experiences & insights from their Corporate or Entrepreneurial life. The broad categorization of topics that you will find on Corridor conversations will be related to technology, digital transformation, marketing, and communications, social media, digital, entrepreneurship, mobile, retail, and human resources.
With a humble beginning in early 2010, Corridor Conversations has built a loyal base of visitors and more are being added daily. ‘Corridor Conversations’ is mostly followed by readers in Asia.
