“Idiot ways to crack CAT hits Allahabad”
Mr. Akash Gautam, International level PDP trainer and Limca Book Record holder for excellence in English vocabulary held a seminar titled “Idiot ways to crack CAT” on 26 July 2010 at K.P. Community Center, targeting CAT 2010 and 2011 specifically. This Mega event was held under the aegis of Career Launcher Allahabad.
‘Veni-Vidi-Vici’. He came, he saw and he conquered. Allahabad was witness to an event of awesome magnitude for the third year running. For students who are used to dull, dreary and drab seminars, it was an afternoon which would be etched firmly in their minds forever. Akash gave such amazing tips on the learning and the retention process, that it sent the confidence of the students soaring. That preparation for CAT could be so much fun, was incomprehensible for most students; that is until now. The signature tune of ‘All iz well electrified the atmosphere and made the entire ambience rocking, since the overwhelming majority of the audience consisted of the generation next. With his characteristic wit, he kept the audience in splits. To keep an impatient generation captive for close to four hours was an achievement in itself. The entire hall was chock-a-bloc with students with even standing place at a premium. A conservative estimate put it at more than a thousand students.
Akash shared with the students 7 Mantras to succeed in CAT. These mantras have been highly researched by Career Launcher, the premium MBA entrance preparation institution, after having trained more than 10 lakh MBA aspirants in the last 15 years. These mantras are not known normally and gave an inside view on the strategies to combat the CAT. The whole philosophy behind the seminar was to enjoy the preparation for CAT. Career Launcher was the trail blazer in initializing the concept of Edutainment in the classroom, where the emphasis was on students who were trained and happy. After all, happy people are more successful too. Getting accustomed to CAT reading, planning, time management, innovation, positive thinking, along with regular testing and strong vocabulary, were some main points which were discussed for the CAT entrance. In 2008 and 2009, Career launcher Allahabad had organised similar events ‘Jab we CAT’ and “Vocab ki Dhan te nan” for the students of CAT 2008 & CAT 2009 respectively. Seeing the stupendous success of that event, this year’s event was planned covering a wider range of topics.
The entire event was the brainchild of Mr. Gaurav Agarwal, Director, Career launcher Allahabad and organised by Mr. Sanjeev Mishra, Head of Location. The host for the seminar was Mr. Ajoy Chakraborty, Head of Corporate Communications, Career launcher Allahabad.
