Life coach Murtaza Badri takes Colombo by storm!
VENTURES is an initiative by Shababul Eidiz Zahabi which aims to develop and foster businesses within the Bohra Community in Sri Lanka. Under this banner, we have executed two very successful Expos for two consecutive years in 2016 and 2017 with participation of approximately 25 and 40 stalls respectively.
In 2018, we planned to include other measures in this business development drive. Accordingly, VENTURES hosted speaker, trainer and life-coach, Mr. Murtaza Badri from Mumbai India for a 4-day visit to conduct 3 seminars.
The seminars held were –
- THE ART OF PARENTING (done in collaboration with the Parent Teachers Association of BSS) – This was a 3-hour seminar held on the 24th of February at the Qutbi Hall. Over 110 people benefited from this very insightful session.
- UNLEASH THE BUSINESSMAN WITHIN YOU – With over 130 participants, this programme was held at the Lakshman Kadirgamar Auditorium on the 25th of February. In this session the speaker shared many important tips and techniques and skills necessary to do business in the 21st century, and was also very motivational to truly unleash the businessmen spirit within everyone present.
- LIFE SKILLS AND CAREER PROGRESS – This seminar was conducted exclusively for the senior students of Burhani Serendib School on the 26th of February at the Qutbi Hall. Mr. Murtaza highlighted the importance of choosing the appropriate career path and also motivated the students to acquire life skills at an early age.
Overall, the entire project was a great success. All programmes achieved the target number of audience and was extremely enjoyed by all parents, businessmen and students at their respective seminars. The sessions were packed with motivation,
and skills development, through both speech and fun activities which kept the audiences captivated and interested throughout.
