He presented his journey through IEEE including his professional and personal transformation and the achievements he made along the way. The consensus is that Anbazhagan’s speech resulted in motivation and inspiration amongst the young minds in the audience.
The session was interactive and managed to engage the audience, which was evident by the high amount of active and engaged student participation. IEEE Entrepreneurship swag was distributed amid and at the end of the session when Mr. Aravindhan asked the audience questions.
