Symbiosis Institute of Business Management Bengaluru (SIBM-B) was host to “Revelation 2015” on20th, 21st and 22nd January, 2015. The Extra-Curricular Committee of the institute organized the same. Revelation 2015 aimed to provide a platform for the students to showcase their management and cultural proficiency and put to test their skills. An event where fun met intelligence, it gave the participants real life lessons on management. The theme for the fest this year was “Victor Ludorum: Winner of all games”.
Revelation – Victor Ludorum, as etymology describes, is to bare, to unearth, or simply put, is to discover the true victor capable of building a legacy of successful personalities, establishing a solid foundation for posterity. In a world of warriors, there are rifts. There are Victors, there are defeatists. There are those who come to climb the hill and those who aspire to reach the sky. Just by winning one doesn't get to be the real winner, It's all about being the "Winner of all "- the Victor Ludorum. If one believes in oneself, is dedicated and has a never-quit attitude, one will be a winner.
The sharpest minds of the country were locked in a showdown to prove superiority. The Marketing, Human Resources, Operations and Best Manager competitions witnessed an intellectual clash of gargantuan proportions.
Each of the events had their own unique touches, related to their respective fields. The Marketing event had a round where participants had to reintroduce products that were unsuccessful in real life. The HR event dealt with various modern day problems and processes human resource professionals have to deal with like HR Analytics and Sexual Harassment at the Workplace. The Operations contest had people designing hostel layouts and flight schedules and cross country negotiations among various other hurdles. Future Finance Experts were served with a platter of debt and bidding wars from which they had to emerge unscathed.
The Best Manager event which is essentially an amalgamation of all the streams had contestants running errands concocted by inspiring minds. Intrigue and thrill were equally incited as events such as Drug Mafia, AAP Campaign became abuzz. Each event had their very own Stress Interview rounds which were to be the final barrier laid in the path of gladiators sparring for victory. The winners of the events were:
Prayukti (HR Event) – Emy and Vincy, LIBA Chennai
Paribhraman (Marketing Event) – Sagar and Aravind, Alliance Bengaluru
Provenance (Operations Event) –Rahul and Sagar, CMS Bengaluru
