The Colour Connection

Alpa standing before grafitti.Colour includes a powerful ability inside our lives. It could remove darkness, unite communities and serve a psychological and physiological change which may be needed in a particular moment. How do you know? I’m not just a marketing supervisor for Cisco’s EMEAR region just, but I’m a self-confessed colour and design enthusiast also. And I’m on a objective to unleash the charged power of color to others!

SINCE I HAVE can remember ever, I’ve always been attracted to colors – from the vibrant colors of my Indian culture that I live and breathe, to the rainbow of colors that I elect to wear. In conjunction with a passion for style and design, this brought me to teach and qualify in my time, as an individual Stylist been trained in Colour Evaluation. I’m fortunate to possess received such hot encouragement and assistance from my Cisco leadership and peers to go after my passion!

Now, I could advise on which someone’s ‘WOW’ colours may be – which would function as colors that compliment and harmonise a person’s complexion, provide a healthful glow and outwardly reflect their personality. I also know how colour can donate to somebody’s mental and physical wellbeing positively.

The latter has been more relevant.

At the right time where just about everyone has struggled with this overall wellbeing, I decided to assist in a means I knew would put my strengths forward – by hosting workshops I call ‘Connect with Colour’. These workshops assist my Cisco family, close friends and community know how they are able to make conscious colour options in their daily lifestyles to positively influence how they feel.

For example, the color green is known because of its capability to harmonise our brain, entire body and emotions – that’s why we feel relaxed and refreshed whenever we are surrounded by greenery and nature! Environment friendly also offers the power to improve productivity by around 15%. Knowing that, it could be beneficial to introduce plant life into your workplace or house to positively donate to your working day.

Year we’ve just entered a fresh, and you’ll be thinking about getting into a fresh hobby or project. The color red shall help! Either in your environment or in everything you wear, red may be the most stimulating color and will help give a burst of power to inspire you to kickstart something fresh!

Cisco not only works with the passions of these employees, but really encourages us to as well grow through our interests. I had been empowered by my EMEAR Marketing and advertising and Distribution Leadership group to organise a health insurance and well-being program with Jessie Pavelka, an recognized fitness trainer internationally, for our valued companions and distributors. In this program, Jessie and I talked about the power of color and how you may use color to positively donate to your mental and actual physical well-being.

As a total consequence of pursing my passions while functioning at Cisco, I’ve been inspired to provide back and have had the opportunity to help bring color to the lives that require it most. I’m presently raising money through my CONNECT TO Color Workshops for a charity near my heart: Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, which helps children with lifestyle limiting diseases.

All this function recently culminated in myself qualifying as a worldwide Finalist for the Cisco SURRENDER award – the Growth Advertising Global Awards. It is a humbling reputation and exhibits how Cisco not merely encourages us to pursue our passions and present back – but that people are supported and identified for the efforts too! Year once we begin our new, I’m excited to keep to greatly help others through my passions while linking them through the miracle of colour.
