The key question the organizers focused was: Are the students clear about what they are trying to achieve here at NIMS and how their efforts contributes to that purpose?.and the another important focus was on Enabling the Progress. The student’s ability to make the progress will be stifled by all the internal and external forces. Enabling progress will be done by mentoring them when required and trying to eliminate the road blocks. The key question fresher’s need to ask themselves was: Am I going to do everything I possibly can to ensure that I am enabling the progress for my personal and professional development.
