Inaugural Members Only Webinar sets the bar high!
Posted on Friday, July 30, 2021
As part of the strategy to add continuous value to members, the
Membership Committee has initiated a series of webinars exclusive
for members and registered students focussing on life / business /
soft skills. The first webinar conducted on 28th July
was a grand success with tremendous value for those attending.
The topic of 'Entrepreneurial mindset - Paths to develop and
enhance' was deftly delivered by a panel of 3 experts led by Mr.
Thomas Gregory FICS, who is a successful entrepreneur in the field
of logistics and associated with the Middle East branch. He has
been on the branch committee as Treasurer and a volunteer tutor for
Institute students. The 60-minute session was really absorbing
keeping the attendees glued to their seats and was full of life
experiences, words of wisdoms and tools to implement some of the
basic, yet important habits essential for success. The expertise of
the other two speakers, Mr. Philip Mazloumian and Mr. Muneer
Samnani in the field of business coaching was evident in the tools
and tips shared by them, which would be beneficial not only for
entrepreneurs, but also for all professionals.
The session was opened with a welcome address by Ms. Gertrude
Ohene-Asienim FICS, Chairman of the Membership Committee followed
by the inaugural address by Mr. Robert Hill FICS, Director of the
Institute. Close to 200 members attended the session which was full
of engaging polls as well as the Q&A session.
The ideation for the session, selection of speakers and
execution was coordinated by Mr. Krishnan Subramaniam FICS, Vice
Chairman of the Membership Committee and immediate past President
of the Middle East branch. The event was managed by the Middle East
branch on their zoom platform with a high level of expertise and
professionalism and we express our thanks to Mr. Krishna Prasad
FICS, President of the Middle East branch and his team for their
voluntary support in flawless execution.
The session was concluded with a summary and vote of thanks to
all involved by Mr. Robert Hill FICS. A special word of
appreciation to Ms. Samantha Porter who toiled at the head office
with prompt attention to all matters in the background including
members communication and social media posts.
The topics intended for the upcoming webinars include Accounting
for Non-Accountants, Personal Branding, and Effective Presentation
and Public Speaking skills. We hope that these webinars will be of
immense value to the members, including the registered students of
the Institute. We welcome suggestions from Members on topics as
well as speakers for the webinars.
