Sr M Carmel Rita A.C., the administrator of the college and the formal principal of the college inaugurated the workshop by lighting a lamp.

She narrated ten traits of being professional with examples.

Brijesh Balakrishnan, senior vice-president of CSS Corp, delivered the keynote address. He said that during college days students get an opportunity to sharpen their academic knowledge. But only when they step into the professional set up, they get to test their knowledge & skills and excel in their career as different organisations have different work cultures. Attending such workshops help students to learn the soft skills & people skills to hone their potentials.

The chairman of ISTD Mangaluru/Udupi Chapter & a Behavioral Trainer Nivedita Mirajkar advised the student participants to develop an attitude of positivity in life and work hard with commitment & devotion to achieve success in life whether as an employee or an entrepreneur.
