WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK AT KEY DIFFERENCE? AT KEY DIFFERENCE, WE BELIEVE WORK IS TABOO.. Let your imagination run the wildest on an ideal work set-up… Imagine exchanging ideas and jokes with some of the knowledgeable, down-to-earth, but most devoted people in the world… Work at KDM is like having your choice of different delicious meals on a rotating server - spicily challenging, chewy educational, sweetly comforting, and others just so undefined in their appearance that you need just to taste them! Anticipating the daily different varieties, you jump out of bed each morning to start out on a new ‘gourmet’ adventure! Getting the most innovative ideas in the world of business and technology even before they hit the streets... Having the top man and your peers listen to even your most farout ideas… Being encouraged and mentored for all you need to reach your creative peak... Warning: This job is so self-fulfilling and stress-free that most CEOs in the traditional business world are curious to see how this set-up works… But this is just the beginning of the KEY DIFFERENCE tour... So, dump the traditional 9-to-5 job. Instead, get paid to play, create, learn and grow – and being filled up to burping. It’s like being a favoured child again. But with a full range of choices you love!
WELCOME TO KEY DIFFERENCE! KEY ENVIRONMENT: At KDM, Your passion for learning and gaining more and more experience are what makes you great. The nights you stayed up until 5am learning or creating makes you an asset. Your love of building things makes you priceless to us. We love Animals & Plants… So we thought our office should have them! Say hello to TOKI (Bird) & BEBO! (Fish). If you are hungry for the ‘meals’ outlined here and passionate about sharing your masterpiece with the world, you may consider yourself hired. When you report for work, just bring your usual creative tools – no need for a resume stating where you went to college or what you scored there. Only your raw, demonstrable talent matters to us! The best place to sit is between plants, so we don’t deprive you! “5 Hours a week to learn, 40 hours a week for fun (our way of saying work!) And optionally 5 Hours a week to serve our community!” Bean Bags Indoor Games: Carom, Chess, Board Games!

WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE DO WE NEED? 1) Individuals with the Highest Energy. If you can start a conversation with strangers on your own pitch and engage them in a thinking process, you are our man. Value and service-oriented people with a high level of initiative are our best picks. If you have that crucial can-do attitude – you are our man! 2) Unstoppable Desire to Win. You will not take no for an answer. You will find a way around a maze, even if you have to go through the whole process again. Well, even if somebody gets you by the tail-end, you can still make your brains work, can’t you? Truly unstoppable – you have our admiration. 3) Willing to let someone else in the team win. Credits are usually for the whole team. No matter who made the final push, everybody feels big and responsible for getting the contract satisfactorily fulfilled. But the thing is the ship needs every hand on deck. So, if the client clicks with another style in the team, you are gracious enough to give way. Less of ego, more of team play – you are the man! 4) Personally Responsible. No blaming and justifying. The buck stops here – take the responsibility for your own work. Dishonesty has no place in the team, but rather, transparency is the big order. Do the style you want – but be ready to take consequences. We can do with more honest work – and humility. 5) Has unique talent or ability. We don’t need copycats. There are enough of those already out there. We give you all the opportunities and the best set-up to accomplish a job’s requirement– so why not return the favor? Don’t undermine your own perceptions. Uniqueness rates high with us. If you have an idea or a way of doing things, why not share it with the team or the top man? You might end up being our winning chip!
WHAT ARE FOUNDATIONS OF KEY DIFFERENCE? 1) Happiness 3) Personal Growth We take the s and h in happiness to spell out two crucial things that define happiness for us who have been around – share and shape. Sharing and shaping our destinies together – that describes happiness for Key Difference believers. With Key Difference, you learn, own new skills, and become better with more challenging opportunities. You are allowed meditation time, relationship with your peers, and non-business stuff for personal growth. Should you want the same, join us! We help you achieve their dreams and goals for yourself, as well as for your family. Thus, growth is pleasant with less bump on relationships. 2) Quest & Purpose The quests are so simplified that you will know exactly what your purpose is – no beating around the bush. You are allowed your own niche – your purpose and the reason for our coming together. Thus, if you found that your preferred place is with us – this is the end of your quest! Now, just dig right in, establish your purpose, and be in harmony with all who are part of Key Difference. 4) Feel at Home! We give you the comforts and freedom in a homey atmosphere.

KEY DIFFERENCE MEDIA FACTS Mr.KEY - The CEO THE KEY Difference STORY THE KEY STORY KEY Difference is a culture, not a corporation. The basic premise behind all our activities is to create an environment of commercial success and personal fulfillment. We make money because we need money to change the world. We are not idealists; we are realists with very real ideas for an idealistically real world! We are not out to create a parallel world that aligns with our objectives; we use our objectives to align the world to standards of excellence and prosperity that we feel are “normal” and “right.” Karnika E. Yashwant (Mr. KEY) is born in Coimbatore in 23 August 1992. He is adjudged India’s “Youngest CEO”, having formed his first company at age 14. Multi awarded CEO of a dozen companies; he is a much sought speaker of international business and civic clubs, as well as academic universities. Perhaps, the best analysis of Karnika can be found in “Karnika – the Alpha Man from India”. This landmark book, acclaimed as one of the books of famous people, holds up a pattern of greatness – emotional and spiritual maturity as basis for Alpha Maleness. There are two ways of looking at this man: he makes you hope to be like him; and two, he makes you want to know more about him. Those who have worked with him will tell you that they have taken from him more than they have given to him. Setting his life as a pattern, our greatest desire is to measure up to his expectations.
TESTIMONIALS We know glossy brochures and fine words don't do it alone... Do we practice what we preach? We let some others come up with testimonials... so judge by yourself... “Sometimes life takes mysterious turns and you do not know how you got there. Call it destiny or some higher influence that grabs your life and pushes you in a certain direction.
