Out of 6 speakers who confirmed, 3 speakers were present for the event; from those who couldn’t make it one of them was seriously ill.
Right from early start of the session, we had tremendous helping from a toast master professional Nikhil Salvi, he was host of the event, he was so through that he not just summarized what we did last time he also wrote complete information of what to expect from today’s session. Nikhil made everyone feel comfortable. We had total of 14 registrations out of which 11 people turned up. (Ironically, I have observed that, it’s not always that those people who have registered turns up for the event). We had 50% percent of people who were Apple fan and 50% who were Android users. For those who were not able to make it they missed a lot on leaning i.e. what are the world best practices on staying productivity over mobile phone. From this event onward we started collecting nominal fees of Rs.50/- from participants and even from speakers.
Yazdi Tantra – As per Nikhi’s introduction for Mr. Yazdi he was our youngest speaker :-), His contribution to the productivity meet up was maximum, Yazdi has more than hundreds of productivity apps well tried tested and curated he is a real connoisseur of android mobile apps. As our No. 1 Speaker he was very meticulous to stick to allotted timings and share best of his gems from his mobile and laptop.
Rohan Naravane of pricebaba.com was very humble and a quite speaker, he waited for everyone to finish first, he is so passionate for the mobile and mobile industry that he spends extra time and money to buy the VGA converter to connect to projector to show his apple applications from his mobile phone and laptop. We were able to learn lot of productivity apps and new trends and concepts for from him.
Saswat Banerjee, showed which tools and apps he has been using in his office, He also brought in the open forum discussion that, there is still no one unified solution which takes of productivity in a real collaborative way without being limiting, He also highlighted that it’s not just applications that are enough consistently sticking to these apps, increasing commitment level and bringing other friends and colleagues is also very important.
We had amazing mix of participant, like Sachin Chavan, Harshal from toastmaster and we also had one colleagues each from our speakers Mr. Yazdi and Saswat attending our event.
