The 5th edition of INKtalks 2014 was inspiring and insightful. This year’s theme was “Beyond the boundaries”. The INK conference was held in Mumbai, it’s an annual event where artists, writers, authors, inspiring leaders, influencers meet under one roof for three days in exchange idea’s ,their stories.
I am fortunate to attend INKtalks this year thanks to Blogadda , gave me an opportunity to explore and took me to a fascinating journey literally beyond the boundaries. It was meaningful interaction and gained insights of powerful changing ideas. This year the participants were from all diversified field from scientist, newbie writers, bloggers, inspiring leaders and artists etc.
I attended the workshop held by Dell. Dell partnered with INKtalks .Dell India, India’s leading end-to-end technology solutions provider announces the launch of their ‘Dell Campassadors’ program and a strategic partnership with INKtalks, an organization which aims to inspire youth, particularly in emerging economies. The association was born out of Dell’s dedicated focus towards the college student community, who not only exhibits a dynamic use of personal technology, but is also advocates for the adoption of new technologies. With this partnership, Dell aims to engage college students through campus ambassadors in a year-long conversation with Dell & INKtalks to foster a strong sense of social orientation and bring student communities together to share knowledge and ideas with peers and work on collaborative projects, all to prepare them for real life challenges.
The session was “how to create you brand in social media”. It was much awaited, enthralling and engrossing workshop.
Lakshmi Pratury, Host and Curator, INKtalks said, “INKtalks is about opening up the imagination of the youth through stories and equip them to create an impact in the world around them. We are thrilled to partner with Dell to take our ideas to the student community at large and get them involved in activities throughout the year. We look forward to engaging with Dell Campassadors who will champion the interaction with their peers, thousands of students in campuses around the country, and catalyze their exposure to INKtalks to help them realizing their imagination into an impact to the society. When we combine the technology outreach of Dell with the projects pioneered by INK, we will have a youth community that can use the technology to make a difference in the communities that they inhabit.”
It was wonderful experience for me, came with a thinking hat and gained meaningful ideas and met inspiring leaders and I am looking forward for next year’s INKtalks
