On Friday, 10th October 2014, 450 young minds came together for Indian Youth to Business Forum at the Indian School of Business, Mohali. Themed ‘Next. Big. Leap’, the event was crafted to sequentially take the audience through futuristic, audacious and actionable stories and ideas from a pot-pourri of achievers. While Viral Oza, the Marketing Head of Microsoft Mobile Devices and Shireesh Joshi, ?COO, Strategic Marketing Group at Godrej had stimulating insights into the world of business and marketing, Saachi Soni, the youngest Indian girl to have scaled the Mt.Everest, stole the show with her story of passion, simplicity and excellence.
A story that certainly seemed to have made a mark was that of young, globally acclaimed photographer, Vicky Roy. The crowd was moved by his humbling journey towards greatness from the streets and his remarkable take on life. The agenda was well packed with several interesting workshops that were conducted by big brands like Microsoft, Young India Fellowship, Teach for India and KPMG and compelling conversations with people like Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director of Triumph Motorcycles, India and the dynamic Vivek Atray, IAS Officer and novelist.
What set this event apart was its closing. Pradeep Singh, the Deputy Dean of ISB delivered a heartening talk on some of the indispensable essentials for the youth and marked the commenecement of a unique, never-before activity. Th 450 students sat under one roof to sketch a consequential output, knitting together the problems faced by the youth and concrete solutions to deal with the same. AIESEC will be releasing this output to the general public soon.
