About

Ram Iyer

I have worked in business for over 30 years and reached several highs and lows but I was unable to achieve spectacular success I expected. I have the drive and the credentials – two masters degrees, one from MIT, a business degree, an extensive network, knowledge and skills, extensive travel, experiences and constant learning….but something was ‘in my way’.

I looked at external reasons and talked to many friends, professionals and accomplished people who gave me advice which didn’t answer my question. I looked into every popular answer to my problem and ended up not finding ‘my obstacle’. I have spent tens of thousands on well-known ‘gurus’ (whom you have probably paid as well!).

Then, it dawned on me. I realized that I WAS THE OBSTACLE – things within me that were impeding my own success. I set out to identify, understand and figure out a way to identify and ‘eliminate’ them. I then realized that millions of others have the same ‘silent killers of success’ – even very intelligent, smart and successful people. Additionally, I figured out several reasons why many smart people do not achieve the level of success they expect.

Each of you can learn, become more intelligent (intelligence can be increased over your lifetime) and smarter, and become more successful (visit www.iSmartANDSuccessful.com). I have figured out many of these things (often, the hard way). I also monitor, distill and share strategies, tools and guidance to navigate the dramatic changes from the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, robotics, automation, artificial intelligence at www.SucceedingINtheNewNormal. I can save you the pain and agony if you are open to learning and applying my insights to ACHIEVE YOUR PERSONAL GREATNESS!

About me

Ram Iyer

I have worked in business for over 30 years and reached several highs and lows but I was unable to achieve spectacular business success. I have the drive and the credentials – two masters degrees, one from MIT, a business degree, extensive network, knowledge and skills – experience and constant learning but it seemed something was holding me back.

I looked at many external reasons and talked to many friends and accomplished people who gave me advice which didn’t answer my question. I looked into every popular answer to my problem and ended up not finding the answer to what vexed me.

Then, it dawned on me. I realized that I had some of the ‘silent killers of success’ – inside me. I then set out to identify, understand and figure out a way to shatter them. I then realized that millions of others have the same ‘silent killers of success’ – even successful business people, entrepreneurs and people working in businesses.

Each of them could achieve greater business success if they eliminated the ‘silent killers of success’ and attained competency in the business success factors.

YOU CAN TRUST ME

I speak and write from real-world experience, from speaking to experts, from speaking to people who have succeeded (and those who have not), from deep thought and a GENUINE DESIRE TO HELP MILIONS OF PEOPLE TO BECOME SMARTER AND MORE SUCCESSFUL.

Thought Leader

I have an innate ability to ‘connect the dots’, make sense of the world around us – sometimes the obvious, and apply common sense.

Keynote Speaker

I get juiced up when presented with opportunities to make large audiences think and become better, smarter and more successful!

Author

I am good at explaining the important and complex and necessary things in simple and practical terms.

Podcast Host

Being curious by nature, I ask probing questions that you probably want to ask the experts and engage them to share practical insights and stories.



Workshop Leader

I am good at taking the knowledge and insights and helping people to put them into practice. Come with questions and issues,….leave with a plan and the confidence to create a better life.


MIT Graduate

My time at MIT and the subsequent time interacting with the many ‘scary smart’ graduates have changed me profoundly – I expect more of myself and what I want to do for my family, friends and society in my lifetime

Books I am writing...

Useful, insightful and practical

In my books, I share my learning from my own education and experiences, and from speaking to experts and hundreds of people from across the world I have spoken to – those who have ‘succeeded’ and those who have ‘failed’.

Its time for changes

In my books, I like sharing the experience from my life. I have been studying for almost 20 years, and my experience in business more then 15 years.
