Our latest round of Creative Career Conclave (CCC) was organised on December 22, 2014 at Dr. I.G. Patel Seminar Hall in Vadodara. The series of sessions enabled students and parents to interact with significant industry leaders and know more about the future of the design industry and the careers that the design enthusiasts can opt for.
The Vadodara leg of Creative Career Conclave series saw the likes of Jyoti Manral – Area Head of Textiles and Interior design & styling at Pearl Academy, Bhavin Trivedi– Senior Associate DSBT along with Mala Sinha – Design Entrepreneur & Founder BODHI speaking to students and parents about the bright future that lies ahead of the creative thinkers who will be responsible for shaping the design industry in the near future. These eminent names shared their vision of the upcoming trends that will radically alter the design industry and maintain the current pace at which the industry has been growing. They also shared that how the students can play a pivotal role in this process by receiving expert mentoring and guidance while learning about their chosen fields and becoming industry ready.
Mala Sinha-Design Entrepreneur & Founder BODHI, said, “There is immense scope for fresh, young and trained minds in the design industry as there is already a demand for skilled labor. I believe this can be addressed by training the leaders of tomorrow, today. It is encouraging to see platforms like Creative Career Conclave, which brings together parents and students to address their concerns about what lies ahead after pursuing a course in a creative field. These professionals will be responsible for forging ahead with fresh perspective for tomorrow which will eventually shape the way we think about design.”
Speaking about the workshop, Ms. Bulbul Chaudhary, Director, Pearl Academy-Mumbai campus, said, “Creative Career Conclave is an interactive session which looks at addressing the queries that parents and students may have about the future they can look forward to, after pursuing a creative course. The speakers at our conclave are those people who have established themselves in the industry and have the first-hand knowledge of the ground realities. Parents and students are receptive to the views of these practitioners as the audience get to know the real experiences from them. It reassures the parents that the creative industries are a promising option for their children and they need not to worry if their children choose to pursue a career in the same.”
Pearl Academy has completed two decades of empowering creative minds. Each of the esteemed personalities addressed the students, giving insights into prolific ways to use their innovative bent of mind. The conclave was well received by all the participants who expressed their interest in future conclave and interactive platforms of similar nature.
