February so far has been very eventful and an interesting month.
One such wonderful event I attended was the Knowledge Factory on 9th February at Taj, Santacruz.
Knowledge Factory is a great platform for young professionals to meet over a meaningful experience. It is a perfect avenue for knowledge exchange in an absolutely fun way.
The tagline Mind. Mischief. More is about serious fun. It leaves a lot to the imagination because the Factory is an open canvas. This one-day festival of Knowledge, Insights, and Trivia delivered by way of talks and quiz.
What an absolute delight it was to be a part of this unique gathering of thinking Indians sponsored by Godrej, Nissan, Viacom 18, True elements and many more reputed companies.
It was a very well organized event with some really intellectual and famous speaker from different niches and fields.
