We offer our unemployed members an opportunity to continue their education and to network with their peers. Please review the conditions for receiving a complimentary meal below.

Pre-dinner Meeting:

Purav Panathula
Sr. Q&R (CS) Manager, Philips

In today’s super fast technology driven highway of life, we are constantly demanded to multitask. So, what is the true meaning of multi-tasking, and how can we implement it successfully? Let’s find out how super brains have decoded this technique and see if we could apply it effectively to our lives.


Post-dinner Meeting:

Y =f(X)
Purav Panathula
Sr. Q&R (CS) Manager, Philips

It’s the fear of algebra that keeps us away from this phenomenal approach to problem solving. We live in a world of many Xs and need to find those that effect the Ys we so care about. Discussion will be focused on how the equation would apply to a problem at work, industry or life.
