Since engage4more has gained leadership in employee engagement business, this was a great opportunity for them to join hands for this project.

The conference started with the inaugural speech and lamp lighting by Prof. Parashuraman (Director – TISS) and Prof. Bino Paul (Dean – TISS) respectively. This was then followed by a welcome performance by the alumni members of TISS.

The conference further gained momentum with corporate honchos and stalwarts from various segments of the industry, taking part in panel discussions and Leader Talk.
