Manthan SVK, in its endeavor to enhance and develop skills amongst its students, recently collaborated with Maverik Ventures’ ‘Speaker Of The Year’. Maverik Ventures works towards bringing children, parents, educators together in order to shape the society of tomorrow by the medium of its forums and skill development techniques.
To commence the association, a small session was conducted on 8th October 2015, by Mr. Ankit, co-founder, Maverik Ventures at the Shakurpur center of Mathan SVK. He talked about the importance of communication and public speaking when it comes to representation of an idea. He highlighted the fact that great innovations are born out of great ideas and each student is a virtual storehouse of such ideas. Students just need to break their inhibitions and speak out in order to be heard.
Mr. Ankit also stated how confidence plays a vital role in effective communication. He briefed the students about the “Speaker Of The Year” competition and familiarized them with the concept, wherein they take a theme and few students from each school are asked to speak on the topic. There is an extempore, a video round and a group-discussion, which lets them select ‘Speaker Of The Year’. The theme for this year’s event is ‘Water’.
The idea was well liked by the students who all keenly listened to Mr. Ankit and showed their enthusiasm by cheering vigorously. Mr. Ankit concluded the session by clicking photographs with the students. He appreciated the students’ enthusiasm and was impressed by the knowledge and skills of students at Manthan SVK.
