I’m writing this post to tell about a gathering which I took part in Royal College, today- “Refresh Colombo” . Yeah I was refreshed today by a good initiative. It was a last time decision that I took to participate this event. I was planning to attend this for over 3 months but today only got the chance to be present.
The gathering started with two interesting videos, which I would like to share.
Since concept wise I’m too familiar with the topics the speakers addressed, but it was interesting to know about Sarvodaya-Fusion which is contributing towards the Sri Lankan knowledge economy. These types of events are very important to people who seek knowledge in different areas and it is good for networking as well. I would say there is no sufficient awareness regarding this event. Since it has non- commercial objective there are several ways to attract audience for this event.
One of the speaker stated that she never watches the TV because the time she spend for one tele drama, she can make use of the time usefully by reading. Good one :-). It is also worthy to note that traditional media is using social media and it seems to be a good sign for social media marketing in Sri Lanka.
Hope I will not miss the future gathering of this community. Let’s get refreshed every month by attending this type of event.
