After the inauguration ceremony, the main speaker, ITC Colombo One Hotel & Residences Human Resources Director Salome Senaratne addressed the participants on personality development, how to successfully face challenges, importance of education, leading a healthy life and how to effectively manage time. She also spoke of her life experiences and challenges she faced to reach the pinnacle of her chosen career while successfully balancing her family life which was an inspiration for all.
