In business of education, we always end up doing events. The most cliche thing we do is seminars. But to deviate from the league and to capture a bigger audience at one go( since the college attendance is maximum now), Career Launcher Raipur decided to do an inter college event which was named:


It was conducted in 2 phases wherein 12 colleges of Raipur were covered from 6 Oct to 13 october. In these colleges, a 1 hr aptitude test was conducted and on the basis of performance in written test, top 10 students from each college were selected for the final round.

6) Gurukul Girls College

8) MATS college
9) MAIC college
10) Harishankar College

In all, 907 students took the written test from which 123 were selected for the finals.

FINAL ROUND- Date: 14 Oct
Venue: Hotel Aditya
Time: 9:30 AM to 7:30 PM

On 14th morning, we all had an apprehension whether students will turn up or not owing to the India-Australia match same day and that too in Nagpur( just 400 km away). But when the event started, much to our surprise around 250 students turned up. Event started with an Introduction round. Finalists (123 students) were grouped into 10 groups of 12 students each and then we went for LIVE GDs. Topics were like: ? B-Schools don?t produce good Managers? , ? Which is better: Pen, Pencil, Both or none? , ? Female Managers are better that Male managers? , ?its not INTEL inside, its MENTAL inside? , ? A leader is dealer of hope? and etc. After each GD, live feedbacks were given abt their performance, body language, eye contact, communication and so on.

Once all the GDs finished, students were invited to share their experiences and the response was overwhelming. Rahul Babu from NIT said- this was even better than NDA SSB. Aditya Tulsyan from NIT said ? he has attended so many seminars from other great speakers, but this one was the best so far.

After GD round, 33 students were selected for the PANEL INTERVIEW which stretched for 2 hour wherein students were asked questions from all spheres.

Then we had a lunch break of half an hour at 4 pm and along with that, CL students performed musical extravaganza with their vocal chords and guitar.

And then came the KWIZ PAKODAH- the business Quiz. The Preliminary round was a crossword puzzle covering 25 questions. 37 teams ( 2 member each) took the prelims out of 6 teams were selected for final round. The Quiz Master was none other than Manas Nayak-the brain behind KWIZ PAKODAH.
Finals had 6 rounds covering variety of audio-visual questions from business world. At 6:45 pm quiz ended with guys from DIMAT emerging as a winner. There were huge accolades since DIMAT guys were able to defeat 4 other teams of NIT.

Finally at 7 pm, prize distribution ceremony started. Overall winners of Spardha were given trophies, certificate, gifts & gift cheques. Biz Quiz winners were given Medals, certificates, books, pen drives. Infact, Audience also walked off with lot of prizes like Good day Biscuits, Lifebuoy, Lux, Rin, Shampoo pouches, management compass n etc.

On this occasion, we launched a value addition product- C2 (the Competitive Club). C2 is an effort to encase the footfalls at the center to more about C2 please find the attachment .

Our team hopes that this brand building exercise will make us Numero Uno in the city of Raipur....
