Amit shared his extraordinary journey with our leadership group at Tata International last year . We were able to relate to him as someone like us who has been able to do amazing things’ with his life and there is no reason why we we cant do it to ourselves."

5th Sept, 10 am. Within minutes of meeting him, I discovered we had a lot in common. I had just turned 50; he was a year younger. Both were alumni of the USA: single masters for me against his triple masters. I loved making presentations; he got paid for them. I was into fitness; he was Mr. Fitness. I ran my own business; he ran a business as well as marathons. I wrote blogs, he wrote blogs and was the author of The Economic Times Bestseller Dare to Run. Similar traits, of course the weighing scale tilted heavily in his favor. A reason to be envious. But I wasn’t. Over time I have realized the ones who invoke envy are the ones to learn from. When you are interacting with the International Brand Ambassador of Comrades Marathon (dubbed as the Ultimate Human Race), it is a wonderful opportunity to evolve. I had questions. What goes on in the mind of a middle-ager when running an 89 km marathon through the treacherous mountains of South Africa? Is his mind made up differently than regular mortals? Is it all in the mind? Before I could ask, it was time for his presentation. I escorted him to the royal banquet hall of Hyderabad’s Falaknuma palace…"

Blue Star Infotech Team was mesmerized and motivated when Amit spoke to our employees. He exemplified our Philosophy - "Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true". His "CAN DO" attitude along with energy, passion and positivity which he brings to running marathons are very similar to what we believe is required to succeed both in business but also more importantly in our personal life as well. We hope Amit continues to keep thousands motivated to achieve their goals....” read more

Mr. Amit Sheth shared his inspiring story of running with our senior leadership team during our strategy meet held in November 2011, at Hyderabad. He elucidated how the dedicated efforts coupled with passion towards any goal in life, be it sporting or organizational, can prove to be life changing. He brought this out very well through the analogy of life and his experience from his first, almost fatal, 200 meter jog on a beach in Mumbai, to the finish line of The Ultimate Human Race: the 89 km Comrades Ultra Marathon in South Africa....” read more

I met Amit when my HR head recommended his name as an external speaker at our annual managerial offsite. He (my HR Manager) gave me Amit's book - Dare to Run and suggested that I have a look at it before he invites Amit. I must admit, I almost didn't read it, thinking to myself "it’s OK, let the HR Manager invite him and I will take a chance that hopefully this speaker will turn out to be fine"!! ...” read More

Thank you for the excellent talk you gave today at the Tat Memorial Hospital. It was not only highly motivating, but also very moving. We all not only enjoyed listening it, but felt like we were present everywhere you ran, and we ourselves were taking every step with you.
Nearly 175 people attended your talk, including our 2 Directors, most heads of various departments, other consultants, residents, nursing staff and even some laboratory people. I hope that your talk will stop us doctors and para-medics from giving excuses, and start running - not only for ourselves, but also for our patients.
On behalf of all the children taking treatment at Tata Memorial Hospital, I also take this opportunity to thank you for all the financial help you have been providing through “RuHI”, so that the needy children can continue therapy regardless.
