Advantage Group Gitikka Ganju Dhar
Bihar Advantage Group organised Advantage Conclave to mark its twenty-fifth anniversary in an effort to discuss the present and future of the state. The event was organised on May 1 and 2, 2018 at Hotel Maurya, Patna. The event witnessed participation of influencers from sectors, including education, health, policy making, who expressed their opinions about the state in several panel discussions.
The conclave kick-started with a session that focused on the present state of education in Bihar. Patna's leading public relations, communications, event and digital marketing company, the Advantage Group on the completion of twenty-five years organised the Advantage Conclave which was inaugurated by Bihar's Deputy Chief Minister, Shri Sushi I Modi. The guests were welcomed by Khurshid Ahmad, CEO and Founder, Advantage Group, which was followed by the screening of a short movie depicting the journey of the group.
The most special element during the event was the 'Virasat-e-Nazm, an entertainment programme performed by top shayars. Besides, India's no.1 radio-jockey, RJ Naved on his first ever visit to the state also shared his views on social issues prevalent in Bihar and the need to fight them.
Sushi I Modi, Deputy Chief Minister Bihar while addressing the audience said, "Bihar is a land that is full of immensely talented and hardworking individuals. The state's environment is favourable and there is a presence of clean water in abundance. Compared to other states, Bihar has resources available in plenty. The rate of development in the state has also risen considerably. A lot is being done in this direction by the government. Development of roads and other basic infrastructural facilities such as electricity have been paid special attention to in Bihar."
Dr.Ratna Purkayastha moderated the second panel on health. During a session on the youth, Jhulan Goswami, Indian National Women's Team also expressed her views on the change in the way the society looked at women. Shri Sushil Modi also felicitated the consultants and employees associated with the Advantage Group. The event also featured a performance by famous synthesiser, Sudhir Sinha.
It was an honour for me to be a part of this event as a host. The Advantage Conclave was the biggest event to be held in Bihar. It was a first conclave which took place in Patna. When such events take place it creates an unprecedented buzz and also re-energises the local experiential industry. I was surprised to see the Deputy CM of Bihar to be present at the event for 3 hours, along with several Bihar's top professionals, bureaucrats and academicians.
