The YLES’10 opening ceremony

I hath returned to haunt the realm of the world wide web. Ah enough dramatic horror bullshit. On with the opening ceremony. I got in a little late so I think I missed what a few guest speakers said. But I did catch the enthralling and super energetic opening done by Nadeem Chawhan. He had the delegates laughing, and having fun. I can remember him saying “yaar yeh jo lafz hei na IS FIELD MEIN SCOPE NAI.. I hate it”.. made me laugh. He had the crowd of delegates clapping, cheering, dancing, chanting.

He later introduced what he thought the youth of today needed. Energy, and the concept of doing something because you want to be successful were on his card for the ceremony.Then he introduced what he called the “concept of chawhanization”.. Which he described later to me as a “personal high anyone can nurture within himself to achieve something”. I then, can call my elusive state of mind as “the concept of hashimization”. That would be elite and awesome.

“Nadeem Chawhan likes to describe himself as “The Pirate of Corporate Storytelling.” He is an MBA by education, but a revolutionist by nature. Prior to consultancy, Nadeem worked with different organizations such as Procter & Gamble, Shell Pakistan & Domed Medicals in marketing & business development capacities.”

Nadeem is senior facilitator, management consultant & director at Navitus. He enriches our work with his rare contributions of analytical & creative thinking. Nadeem focuses on personal & team development through areas like interpersonal skills, entrepreneurial spirit, sales, transformational leadership, overall strategic planning & dealing with the future.

This can be found on the NAVITUS WEBSITE

He also talked about “Wake Up Islamabad”. A venture he is working on to enlighten the youth. This venture is arranging an event at the Convention Center, Islamabad on the 31’st of January’10 to get people together for the show stopping event called “Takmeel-e-Pakistan” which is going to be held at the Minar-e-Pakistan. Because according to him, it’s been more than 6 decades since the last declaration of independence was passed, and that we need another one that integrates modern needs, wants and the dressing of success.

He also thought that the chicken crossed the road because it was afraid it’d get raped by a certain individual (the name I could not get), present there. This is in fact a major issue in itself and should be address on a larger scale as chickens play an important role for the high and dry and the leaders who think they can fly *Wink*…

All in all, it was fun, energetic, and got the delegates rolling for the event to follow which was the Social Enterprise Challenge which I will write about tomorrow. For now, I need to get my Rock Star groove in motion and go to the themed carnival. Theme being “Rockstar”.I also can bear witness to the fact that social events play a very important role in events such as YLES. So my friends, compatriots, my friends, compatriots *Oh wait I already wrote that*..

Toodles. Viva La Revolucion.
