Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Bengaluru (SIBM-B) in coordination with the Students Research Committee organized the 2nd edition of Symposio, a National Level Student Conference on December 19, 2014. Symposio attempted to capture the spirit of innovation this year through stimulating discussions to scrutinize the application of responsible innovation in the four pillars of management, vis-a-vis, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources and Operations through white paper presentations and seminars by eminent speakers in the domain.
The key note speakers of the day, Mr. Rishab Dev, CEO, Mapplinks.com and Mr. Kingsley Joseph, Founder, Bite Me Company, offered innovative insights to the students of SIBM, Bengaluru. Mr. Dev talked about how today’s success should not become tomorrow’s enemy and how not to get punched in the face in today’s competitive world.
Mr. Kingsley Joseph grabbed the attention of the crowd by making them guess words related to innovation, like ‘read between the lines’ and ‘get uncomfortable’, which in itself was a very creative idea. While Mr. Rishab Dev focused his talk on creativity, innovation and invention, Mr. Kingsley Joseph stated that innovation could make people uncomfortable in today’s time.
After the immensely interactive session with both the speakers, talented student speakers of different colleges showcased their ideas through white paper presentations. There were participants from profound business schools like IIM Indore, SIBM-Pune, Xavier Institute of Management Bhubaneswar, TISS Mumbai, Xavier Institute of Management & Entrepreneurship Bengaluru and Indira College of Engineering and Management, Pune. The winners of the event were Mr.Mehul Shroff from Indira College of Engineering and Management, Pune and Ms. Deepti K. S. from SIBM-Bengaluru.
