Prof P.S. James, Senior HR faculty at TAPMI spoke on the theme of the HR-Conclave 2011. He insisted that there is a need for strategic interface and we do not have the manpower of the required nature in the industry. It is because of this that business schools in India find it difficult to create new talents, and hence, emphasized on the fact that B-schools are focussing on interacting with the industry as many times as possible. In this context, he called DISHA a direction setting exercise.
Day 2 began with a lot of events simultaneously held at different venues. The major events of the day were – “Expositus” the inter b-school case analysis contest, “Sophos”, the guest lectures by the eminent leaders of the companies and “Vrondi”, the mock press event.
The Valedictory function was held on the evening of 11th September. The HR Forum at TAPMI thanked all the dignitaries who had flown down to TAPMI and interacted with the students and making the event a grand success.
