Rishihood University in association with Global School Leaders’ Consortium (GSLC) hosted the largest 3-day education conference on reforms and planning in education. The conference brought together more than 300 schools across the nation, along with top industry experts and government officials. The conference began with a networking dinner at Shree Jee Vilas Hotel on Thursday. The rest of the events were held at the Rishihood University campus on Friday and Saturday.

The event was based on the theme of reforms and planning in the field of education and talked about New Education policy by the Government. Rishihood University aims to provide India a non-Left scholarship space committed to academic excellence, and bring up change makers who can think from the Indic perspective. This event added to the thought process and brought together thought leaders of the industry to talk about the reformation of education.
The institute had invited a host of illustrious persons from Education, the Social Sector, Academia, Media and public intelligentsia to deliver their thoughts on effective leadership, of which there is a gap in India, and how young aspirants can extract from the worth of education the desired outcome.
Embracing the occasion Mr. Prabhu said “We are in an era where social media governs the life of people and it becomes our social responsibility to built a nation that can produce more Ambanis and Tatas rather than just being employed under them.
