As a prelude to the event, a series of in-house activities such as poster competitions, quizzes and a competition calling for white papers from undergraduates, were concluded. In parallel several workshops for university lecturers and undergraduates were conducted at Pearson Lanka, giving them industry exposure whilst sharing Pearson’s own quality engineering practices.

The keynote speech at the event on ‘Inspiring Quality through Innovation’ will be delivered by Palo Alto Networks Sri Lanka and the Maldives Country General Manager Rohan Jayaweera. He is also the former Country Consultant and Brand Evangelist for Google Sri Lanka. Pearson Vice President – Global Quality Engineering Teresa Jacobs and University of Sri Jayewardenepura Senior Lecturer Dr. Dushar Dayarathna will grace this occasion as the other distinguished speakers. The event also includes a panel discussion with MAS Linea NXT Director/CEO Malik Ahamadeen, Rohan Jayaweera, Teresa Jacobs and Pearson Lanka Enterprise Architecture Head Subuki Shihabdeen. 

Pearson Lanka is excited to host this event. As a committed contributor to the IT industry, Pearson believes that this will be a leap towards shaping the future outlook of quality engineering in Sri Lanka.
