'Career Summit 2012' organised by Mélange Communications

Career Summit 2012 was successfully held at Spectra Convention Center on April 7, 2012 by Mélange Communications. The focus of the event was in bridging the existing information gap between students and other job-seekers and the corporate world. This was done, as said by Mélange Communications, by bringing the students and other job seekers and some notable personalities of the corporate world face-to-face.

The event started off at 2:50 pm with a three hour long 'Workshop and Training Programme', comprising of four separate 45 minutes-long sessions, dealing with four distinguished topics. The speakers for the sessions were G Sumdany Don, Independent Career Consultant and Quazi M Ahmed, Founder and Chief Dreamer, FutureLeaders. Samdany delivered his speech in an interactive manner where he concentrated on informing the students about what is more important to them, CGPA or Extra Curricular Activities, and to what degree should each of these be pursued. Quazi talked about some of key aspects of attaining success and happiness in life in his very inspiring speech.
