We were happy to have with us Prof. C.D.Parmar, HOD, ICT – Marwadi University. He moderated the event where he invited all the speakers to share their journey from being a student to a professional. Each speaker talked about the specific domain of their field and discussed about it’s current trend in the market.
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations. And we were fortunate to have many wonderful speakers with us on board that day to guide the students and young professionals.
Finally, the networking sessions began. All the participants were allowed to get into the breakout room of their domain interest where there was one speaker in each group. Everyone had the opportunity to talk and participate in the networking activity. It was amazing to see students coming up with such intuitive questions.
The breakout sessions were for 45mins. All the participants came back to the main room and there was a feedback session. Students from different break out rooms shared their experience about the networking with the speaker and on the event as a whole. Speakers also shared their experiences on interacting with the participants.
Lastly, the vote of thanks was given by Prof. Mehul Kantaria. He offered a small token of appreciation to all the speakers on the behalf of IEEE Gujarat Section, IEEE Young Professionals and Marwadi University by presenting them with a virtual gift.
(The flow and agenda for both morning and evening sessions were the same, just with the switch of speakers.)
