Seminar Williams Lea

Padma Venkataraman sowie die StudentInnen und Künstler der Bindu-Art-School wurden am 15. 12. 2010 von der Firma Williams LEA Group, Chennai, eingeladen zum Thema „Where There Is A Will, There Is A Way“ und über die Veränderung ihres Lebens zu den Managern des Konzerns zu sprechen.

„Williams Lea, the leading global provider of Corporate Information Solutions, officially opened Abbey View, its flagship solutions centre for the UK.

For the last 18 months, Williams Lea has experienced unprecedented growth, both in terms of operating in new markets such as the US and Australia, as well as the development of its Corporate Information Solutions to new clients and market sectors in the UK. As a result of this, the company recognised the opportunity to invest in a purpose built, 70,000 sq ft facility in Wymondham, Norwich, as a central hub for its clients alongside Williams Lea’s other CICs in London, Scotland, Chennai (India) and 13 US cities.

The multi-million pound investment in this Corporate Information Centre, which is the base for over 400 Williams Lea employees, is the first of its kind in the UK. The centre provides its clients with specialist off-site support for their Corporate Information requirements which Williams Lea defines as the information exchanged between an organisation and its internal or external audiences.

Integrating the latest in technology, equipment and workflow processes, Williams Lea manages its clients’ end-to-end customer correspondence and marketing communications channel. This includes the scanning and indexing of incoming mail which is then uploaded directly to clients’ workflow systems, and the composition, printing and distribution of all outgoing correspondence.

At a commemorative launch event held for clients, employees and local dignitaries, Abbey View was officially opened by Williams Lea’s Group Chief Executive, Tim Griffiths and Dr. Hans-Dieter Petram, member of the board of the company's new principal investor, Deutsche Post World Net. Guests were provided with a comprehensive insight into the centre’s capabilities and use of technology to deliver these solutions.

Tim Griffiths said of the opening, ‘Williams Lea is delighted to be launching its new flagship Corporate Information Centre for the UK We recognise the importance of continuing to invest in and develop our Corporate Information proposition and subsequently look forward to building upon the capabilities of the centre for new and existing clients.’“

Padma Venkataraman sprach über die Entwicklung der Bindu-Art-School und ihren StudentInnen. Sie beschrieb auch die positiven Veränderungen in der gesamten Leprakolonie, die sich seit des Bestehens der Schule ergaben.

Die StudentInnen erzählten von ihren Lebenserfahrungen sowie über die inneren und äußeren Veränderungen, die sie durch die künstlerische Arbeit erfahren durften.
Die Teilnehmer dieses Seminars bedankten sich bei den StudentInnen und Padma Venkataraman mit einem kräftigen Applaus.

Die StudentInnen waren sehr glücklich über die anschließenden Diskussionen mit den Managern des Konzerns und freuten sich über die Geschenke und das gute Essen.

Wir danken der Williams Lea’s Group für die Einladung zu diesem Event, das unsere Arbeit gegen das soziale Stigma, das der Lepra anhaftet, sehr unterstützte.
