5 Steps to Greatness at CFO Conference 2019

It was Tuesday morning when I rushed to PC hotel for the event coverage. The event was CFO Conference, though it was officially for accountants and business related people, but being a media blogger I love to interact and learn new things from people’s experiences.  It’s hard for me to wake up early in the morning and rushing for the conference but it was magnetic power that forced me to run for it.

Well, after arriving at PC, I became more excited because all my favourite international cricketers were in the lobby, and how could I left this opportunity, but instead of meeting them and asking for a selfie. I ran for marquee where this conference was happening.

The conference was divided into two parts. In the first part, there were six sessions while in the second part there were four sessions. My favourite part was “5 steps to Greatness”.  In this session, the speaker shared the tips to achieve goals for greatness.

  1. Passion
  2. Leadership
  3. Technological trends
  4. Competition
  5. Vision

After this, another speaker shared about technological trends. It was also an amazing session because in this part the speaker engaged to the audience by asking questions. He shared the reasons for the downfall of renowned brands.

Last but not least Anwar Maqsood session was the energizing part for the audience. It was incredible than all. Since the lighter part is also important after gaining so much knowledge and information.

After the successful conference in Karachi. The management organized the same conference in Islamabad, just after two days of it.

I believe such kind of conferences should be organized twice or thrice in a year. At one side, they are very knowledgeable and informative. So, on the flip side, the people from the commerce industry can interact with the seniors directly, and learn things from their experiences.

A memorial day of Graduate Student

A journey that started from Orientation, come to end on Convocation.

In the 4 years journey of the university, many ups and downs came, which made it a roller coaster ride of life. Remembered the first day in university? That face, looking for a classroom, reaching before time, nervous and excited at the same time, and tension of ragging as well. Hope you do, these are few of the things that almost every student face on the first day of their university.

Giving introduction in front of all class, and thinking what impression I left behind, reminds the very first day of university. A room full of students who were Extrovert, Introverts and Ambivert from different backgrounds. They made perception on the basis of dressing, gestures, postures and way of talking, which later appeared to be false. Well, same things continue happening, until and unless they don’t actually interact with each other.

Selfies are the only thing that starts from the one friend and later convert into a group of friends or a couple. A historic fountain of the university was one of the favourite selfie-spot for most of the students. Interacting with seniors was quite difficult but was also exciting at the same time.

So, that’s how this journey officially accelerated. In the journey of four years, three festivals, national and International trips, Ambassador Program, and many high-profile visits amongst many other happenings took place in the university.

After the completion of two years; time ran so fast. Years changed into months, and months changed into weeks and weeks changed into days. And then, finally, a day come which is called “Convocation Day”.

SMIU Convocation 2018

Tears of happiness, smile on faces, aims in hearts, many dreams, and of course phones in hands for selfies. These all things are directly reflected to the student, who spent 4 years of his/her life to an institute from where he/she is officially graduating now. A big day; not only for students but also for parents, guidance and teachers as well. On this day, students wore a gown and cap with an aim to fly it at the end of the ceremony.

 

On one side, students were happy to receive their degrees. So, on the flip side, parents were also happy to see their offspring receiving the degree. Almost every student introduced friends, colleagues and teachers to their parents.

 

Students who were awarded gold and silver medals were the ones who scored the highest and second highest CGPA in their academic journey. They made their parents more proud by being the one from their classes.

All the fights, misunderstandings, disappointments, jealousy and ego came to end, after receiving a degree and everyone wished successful career and better future to each other.
