A Dignified Innovator
Founder and Managing Director of Brand Serve Pvt Ltd., Gaurav Bargujar, is a curious and creative professional. After working with the Marcom industry for a while and having executed a mammoth number of successful events, he knew he had his heart set on delving deeper into the industry. Gaurav desired to enhance his relative skills further and came up with the idea of starting something of his own.
He collected all the courage and motivation he could from his close friends and family to launch Brand Serve Pvt Ltd. Since its inception, the company is on a constant high by adding feathers on its cap. An imaginative view of this cap exhibits a colorful cheer of success.
The world needs more leaders because not everyone can steer work and content out of others. Gaurav is all for this and makes sure to imbibe leadership qualities in those who he thinks have a spark. He views a leader as one who isn’t insecure about sharing secrets to become a director.
Some things work out the way we want, and some don’t. Evidently, finding success in everything we want seems impossible since we live in a competitive world. Gaurav, too, has tasted failure and shares how he still encounters them. “I don’t take that as a reason to step back, but it helps me rule out the possibility of doing something. When I fail at something, it clarifies how all I need is another approach, not that I am not good at what I do,” he conveys.
Brainstorming helps Gaurav and his team beat the giants of the Marcom industry when they started. They realized then that all they needed was to change their client list. Approaching those firms who couldn’t afford the established companies and Gaurav’s experience amounted to making Brand Serve a massive success.
The word “risk” is an announcement of fear. But Gaurav considers himself lucky when it comes to taking risks with his business. “It always worked for me!”
Running a business is like that responsibility on your shoulder, which can either straighten your body up or seem like a burden that brings you down. When Gaurav became an entrepreneur, he observed how he did not just have to work with different kinds of people but also lead them without conflicts. He found it taxing to match people’s wavelengths but has ultimately mastered it.
Forecasting the outcome of various business decisions is also something he had to work upon. Earlier, Gaurav didn’t have to bear the consequences. But since the time he became an entrepreneur, he had to cope with whatever he received as a result. “Of course, this part gets better with time. Your judgments become a cut above, and the level of patience augments,” points out.
But with that came his great leadership lesson, which was to care for the people who work for you. Happy employees account for happy clients. You cannot have the latter without the former.
As a tip for the generation next, Gaurav believes that they are a bundle of knowledge. “They need to back their knowledge with expertise by learning from an established lot of entrepreneurs. That will build renowned leaders around the world.”
Rewards and recognition can reinvigorate any tired or overworked team. Gaurav finds his contentment in the words of appreciation from vendors and clients. Sharing the credit for the same with employees makes them feel like working harder for the next project. An exceptional leader himself, Gaurav confirms how he always practices this to keep the work environment satisfied and productive.
One of the best features of Gaurav’s leadership style is the freedom for an employee to work according to their comfort pattern. He doesn’t believe in imposing company prepared schedules and hampering their creativity. “I trust my people to provide the best for the clients and the company. They don’t need monitoring.”
Presently, the team of Brand Serve is looking forward to attending the Dubai Expo 2020. Gaurav expresses how he’s speaking to his enthusiastic team every day who cannot wait to make the best of the year.
Gaurav did not let the global lockdown affect the company’s goals. In fact, he and the team decided to make “Work from Home” a lasting working pattern to reduce carbon footprints. “This will be our way to reduce the use of petrol and paper.”
From being someone who wasn’t born an entrepreneur to becoming someone who gave birth to some splendid ideas, Gaurav Bargujar’s story is motivating.
