The world in general and India in particular, are in ferment with increasingly affluent and keen citizens often strong in the professional/technocratic areas of their choice. But they lag in a larger awareness of the world around them. Knowledge Factory aims to bring to such eager individuals keen to become well-rounded citizen interactive experiences that make it engaging to learn.
Leadership requires more than skills that accomplish tasks. Audiences can have online and offline expert talk formats or have courses that teach people specific topics or skills. But there are hardly any platforms that gives them an opportunity to learn about multiple things that affect them without the burden of formality dimming their senses.
The platform will involve lectures, panels, fireside chats, offline interactions, educative quizzes and entertainment slots that go beyond long monologues. The topics will mix contemporary affairs with long-term, big picture issues in a flexible format but structured in a way that seems like learning about a range of topics. This is not just a movers and shakers hangout.
