Pecha Kucha has become a global event and is now in over 600 cities. Its openness and inclusiveness makes it an excellent way to share information, meet new people and interact in meaningful ways with other passionate people.
Pearl Academy Noida, in association with Adianta School of Leadership and Innovation, witnessed one of such nights at its campus today. With focus on “Social Media Entrepreneurs” as they key theme, the evening saw young and dynamic professionals as speakers from diverse fields such as design, fashion, music, organic farming, wedding photography, cultural artifacts, and food, among many others.
The leading mentors, advisors and curators of India’s online entrepreneurial culture at Pecha Kucha were – Sunil Kumar, President, Exchange4media Group; Ipshita, Founder, CakesMammaBakes; Neha Chopra, Strategic Planning Director at Ogilvy & Mather; Sanchit Vir Gogia, CEO, Greyhound Knowledge Group; Surbhi Mittal, Fashion Designing Professional (Pearl Academy Alumni) and a Start up Enthusiast; Nikhil Paul, CEO & Founder, We Make Love and Amit Grover, CEO, Nurture Talent Academy.
Ms. Nien Siao, Director, Pearl Academy, Noida, was delighted and expresses herself in these words, “Pearl Academy is delighted to collaborate with Adianta School for Leadership and Innovation and we are glad be a part of the Pecha Kucha Nights. This indeed is an innovative way to bring creative and progressive minds together to share their work and experiences. Our constant endeavour is to stay dynamic and incorporate new and exciting trends in our teaching practices. With Pecha Kucha, we are a part of the larger inclusive learning society where students, faculty and professional experts showcase, chat and converse in an open environment.”
The theme of the night was carefully chosen and kept so (Social Media Entrepreneurs) because this particular fraternity has grown humongously in the last few years and interestingly the age does not seem to be of any significance here. A person in his eighties is as active as a lad or lass in his/her teens. Being online has become a very essential of everybody’s life and this also fed one of the discussions at Pecha Kucha forum on sustainable online enterprises.
Then we had speakers who enlightened about virtual money, new ideas, innovation, online start-ups, tools for sustainable online businesses, etc. The motto behind every talk was to inspire younger generation to take risks and live their dreams by doing what they want.
