“Where Others See Wall, I See a Door”
Walls transformed into doors, doors of opportunity, doors of wisdom, doors of learning, doors of fun! And out came an army of bright, motivated, achievement oriented young women. With dreams in their eyes, courage in their hearts, ready to take charge of their lives!
On 30th July at the 7th Katalyst annual convention at Country Inn & Suites conference room, 150 Katalysts were all eyes and ears ready to absorb all that a power packed panel and various stakeholders had to share to enrich their lives! The atmosphere was charged with energy, enthusiasm and thought provoking messages enlightening the minds of these budding engineers.
“I still remember how I would shiver in front of others during Katalyst training sessions! Once Sunit sir gave me a mike in a session to speak a few words but I was at a loss of words due to my low confidence. So I passed the mike to the other girl. That was the moment I walked away with a feeling of not being able to do anything. But Katalyst changed my outlook towards life.”
