World Youth Conference “Youth for Sustainable Development” from 12th November – 14th November 2016 at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi, India facilitated a process that strengthens effective youth participation in the planning, implementation and evaluation of various global issues of the world which refers to the process of defining the future global development framework that will succeed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) of the United Nation.
The Conference also focused on an inclusive platform for youth that enables them to review the progress of the SDG’s, share ideas, experiences and innovative approaches for effectively contributing to the SDG framework and its implementation.
Hosting this conference has been a tremendous experience so far.
I have learned it that when you’re in stress and pressure, you tend to lose yourself most of the time, but know it, that is when you’re out of that comfortable zone so take that as an opportunity to growth rather than a burden. You can’t put the blame on the organization if it’s hard for you to cope up, forget about doing better. You need to stick to the point when your hardest hit cause it’s when, at times, things go wrong that you must not quit.
It hit me many times while I were laying accusations that not every time, things will go smooth and according to the plan. You wanted to be a leader, right? Now, deal with it. You know what you’re best at? Connecting! Yes, that’s the number one criteria for your advancement and you know how to connect? No? Look, man. We humans have a tendency that we will only listen to you if we’re important to you. Now, go and put value in your audience and connect!
And so did I learn that if I ever want to accomplish my goals, I must connect in a way that it will not only be effective but a very enjoyable experience for me and everyone in the room.
For many performers or well known speakers, its very important for them to be valued by their listeners but for me, I love my audience. It is crucial for a connector to first value his audience if he has a passion for public speaking and a plan to sustain.
and in between a lot of work, it is healthy to sit down for a while and have a cup of coffee with the woman you like 😉
