At MaxEd Think Tank Conclave 2017

It was quite sheer coincidence that I got connected to the inspiring community of business management educators called ‘MaxEd’. LinkedIn has played a key role in establishing this connect. 

I got into the community through their WhatsApp groups and started networking very closely. The entire community was quite enthusiastic to join hands with us to spread the message of innovation beyond the corporate circles and towards the academic platforms.

I joined them in the Think Tank Conclave in Kochi at Olive Downtown, quite a professional environment for discussion of this magnitude.

We brainstormed over quite a few topics concerning Management Education in Kerala.


Rishabh, an aspiring entrepreneur has presented a few interesting ideas around building a business model to conduct education as a multinational experience.


Inspired by the air of positivity and optimism, I decided to share a few thoughts on innovating management education in Kerala through a phase wise, yet radical approach.

My proposal was well received by all the delegates in the conclave. We had multiple rounds of ideation and collaborative thoughtscaping around building Edu Tech and Edu Innovate Ecosystem around campuses in Kerala. A few academic institutions like SCMS Cochin, SB College Changanassery, DCSMAT etc., TKMIM etc. came forward with abundance of energy and passion to realise the dreams together. Finally, we called it a day with a flick together to flock together a long journey ahead !
