Purpose

The Pep Talk Forum is an ongoing platform to ensure Communication Mastery. It has 5 clear and distinct :

Methodology

  1. Meetings will be conducted once a month for about 90 minutes on a fixed day. (to be announced shotrly)
  2. Every meeting will have two clearly defined portions:
    1. Focus on improving Public Speaking and interpersonal communication
    2. Improve one’s Persona and Leadership capability.
  3. External Expert. Once every two months a business or community leader will be requested to speak to the group for 15 minutes and after that, there will be a 15 minute Q & A session. Speakers could be high ranking Public Officials (Commissioners, Chairpersons – Police, Income Tax etc.) Heads of companies, Political Leaders, Authors, Sports Stars, Celebrities etc.  The idea here is to ensure that members are able to meet and mingle with the intelligentsia and expand social connect and consciousness.
