THURSDAY 22ND SEPTEMBER 2016 – Oshwal Ekta Centre – the evening was buzzing with fun and interactive ideas and discussion!
The Youth & OBPN Conference 2016 attracted over 100 young Oshwals from many Areas of our community, to come together for a great evening of networking, sharing of thoughts, views and vision for our community going forward.
With welcome drinks in hand and some light food refreshments, everyone enjoyed a networking session. Catching-up with old friends and making new friends!!
The evening opened with a lovely modern dance routine, performed by Meera Shah, to the music of Slumdog Millionaire! The audience were captivated by the warm welcome and appreciated Meera’s performance.
After Prayers (led by Varsaben Shah, an EC Member and Religion Portfolio Chairperson), Tusharbhai (our OAUK Hon. President) welcomed everyone and introduced the Youth Team (Rahul, Bhavni, Kunjal & Rekhaben).
Then Bhavik Shah, a young Oshwal running his own Property Investment business, gave a very short preview talk on the upcoming Property Seminar, which will be happening on 13th October in Central London.
Thereafter, everyone was shown the special event webpage which was available to attendees only, which outlined a variety of interactive features which were used during the rest of the evening to share ideas.

There were table facilitators to help each table group during the brainstorming session. Making use of a special event webpage on our Oshwal website, attendees were able to post ideas straight to the website, for sharing amongst everyone else, which were projected live on the screen!
After a short break for tea & cofee & cake (homemade by Rekhaben), Meera & Vimal Shah gave a short presentation on the upcoming Media Seminar, which will be on 10th November in Central London.
Then it was time for group presentation – and oh what great fun we had!!
Ideas flowed and lively discussions helped shaped some of the ideas which Oshwal Youth Team would be pursing.
Tusharbhai closed the evening with a short highlight of upcoming events and thanked everyone for all for coming and sharing their ideas.
