The Annual General Meeting of TMC Mt Lavina was held recently at The Grand Monarch followed by fellowship. Ashoke Baddage was appointed as the Chairman for the year 2014 and whilst addressing the membership he mentioned that the new committee will be rolling out some interesting plans for the membership this year. Baddage pointed out that in contrast to the last year the new committee is highly committed to drive many initiatives for the membership enabling them to network, interact and get the knowledge in diversified topics. He mentioned that this will give an opportunity to young managers to build their professional networks and an opportunity to develop their careers.
Further he said that apart from developing management skills it is also important for the Management Club to educate the membership on some common topics that will help them in their careers. Baddage further added that in today’s context a manager should not be restricted to his own domain but should have knowledge in other domains as well in order to be successful in their career.

He said the session will focus on educating the membership on the tips to become a prudent investor in stock market and the eminent speakers and panellist will answer the questions from the audience to make it interactive.
