DOES INDIA DESERVE A WORLD CLASS LECTURE SERIES?
The utility and role of ideas and pathbreaking lectures can now be just consolidated and not debated. In the Exponential Age when disruptive technologies are showing the way, the nation’s fabric is both under stress and churning. Hundreds of large conferences, symposiums and seminars are not able to find a meaning or show a direction so desperately needed by students, researchers, entrepreneurs, govts., enterprises and endless others. They all struggle with the obnoxious documentation done in the ppts and absolutely no worldly wise findings come out at the end of the conference.
If these costly jamborees were to be the same as the lectures churned out in classrooms or so called professional forums, taking care of that particular fixed group at the maximum then what is the purpose of all the intellectual fanfare built around it. Conference Birds as we call them, they hop and chirp from one conference venue to the other. They can never become Intellectual Collaborators or even further The Pathfinders of the Age of Disruption. They wouldn’t have even heard of these roles.
With no public speaking / conferencing platform performing this role or not even ready to perform this role, there a is dire need to have a pathbreaking lecture series which caters to our very specific need of intellectual / practitioner / researcher leadership to all who require. When everybody is getting disrupted who doesn’t need it. The As Is in any field or area of work / study and the Desired State has to be abridged by this lecture series. They would be the master practitioners / researchers who profess what they preach; everything objective and empirical.
It would be a growth journey which has to be traversed together. Best brains, best practitioners and best speakers too is the killing combination which would be on full display. They would also be the ones with intense hunger to translate the intangibles into very conspicuous tangibles. The documentation has to be world class. Direction crystal clear. The lecture series platform will take care of cracks and crevices in the game plan discussed and Make Change Happen.
NATION’s VISION CAN BE ACHIEVED THROUGH A WORLD CLASS LECTURE SERIES.
