Topic: The Power of 5

Resource Person: Mr. Abhinand Shankar

Date:  8th, February 2024 (Thu) 

Time: 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm

Venue: PALMS A/C Hall, Indian Chamber Building, 84-D South Raja Street, Tuticorin – 628 001 

Programme Objective: The number five is significant in the way our planet functions
through the five elements for instance, and also is significant in our organization of faith
and belief across religions – be it the five Pandavas in Mahabharata, the five representing
God’s grace in the Bible, or the five pillars outlined in Islam. In this interactive session, I’d
like to explore with you the power of five and its potential to guide the way we organize
our personal and professional lives. We’ll explore tools that harness this power of five and
apply it to real life situations that require solutions-centered thinking and broad
imagination.
