Cohort 6 fellows are very much excited about their leadership activities. They are going to implement their ideas and own solutions which involves local community and local resource. Some of the fellows are taking initiative first time in some activity and that will be their first experience. These activity will increase their confidence level, courage and attitude to react to the situation. This attitude will influence their hidden leadership skills, during leadership activity they will get improvements in their communication skill according to the situation they will be capable to handle the things. Program is waiting for their sharing and experience. Program wish them for their leadership activities.

They really had a good exposer to the NGO as all the batch of DFP visit NGO's each batch get different experience then other and even organization presents the present situation so it is visible for us to see how even there is a difference of opinion and thoughts of fellows and NGO's . Here program appreciates all NGO who gave a brief information about the organization even by using some games, Group dynamics. etc.

Hemal Desai Guest Speaker

Mr. Hemal Desai he is a one of the member of Hubli Champion and also a General Manager in Mayur Hotel, Hubli. which is one among the best hotel of the Hubli. We had him as a Guest Speaker for Cohort 6th batch. It was really a great opportunity for fellows to interact with him. while sharing their learnings from session. fellows focussed on some particular points by which they get impressed, like giving a service to the customer whichever they want, If you are not the person to provide it then connect it to the person who provides it. By this we are going to build the relationship for a long time and they will contact us whenever they want the service which we provide.
He even gave his own example like when he left his previous company the customers even moved with him to the new company where he is working now.
Fellows really liked the way he thinks about connecting himself with people and building strong and long lasting relationship.
We really Thank Mr. Hemal for supporting the fellowship program.
