Symbiosis Institute of Operations Management (SIOM), Nashik bid adieu to its batch of MBA 2016-18 with their last lecture Adyant-2018 by Prof. Sunny Thomas, former coach of the Indian shooting team today at their premises. Prof. Thomas has been the coach of the Indian shooting team for 19 years, during which the team had won for Olympic medals.
To the budding managers, he stressed the importance of discipline, self-confidence, self-belief in setting your goal and continuous hardwork to attain success in any endeavor. He also mentioned the importance of developing discipline without killing the individual talent. “All that Adam had, all that Caesar could, you have and can do. Build, therefore, your own world,” quoting Ralph Emerson, he reminded the audience. He asked the audience to know their abilities, since they are all able gentlemen and ladies.
Also sharing the stage with him were Dr. Vandana Sonwaney, Director, SIOM; Aditya Ashtrekar, Captain, Indian Under-19 National Team Captain, Asia-Pacific School Games; Nilesh Gakwaid, who represents India in International Para-Badminton Championships and Suresh Tukaram Kakad, Coach, Indian Women Track Team, Asian Athletic Championships 2017.
Adyant-2018 also saw various prizes and awards for excellence in academics, sports and cultural initiatives being distributed to the students at SIOM. The prestigious “Best Outgoing Student” for the year 2018 was won by Mr. Joseph Yesovadian for his efforts and achievements in academics, extra-curricular and co-curricular initiatives alike.
