Endeavoring to think beyond the set and standard managerial and professional practices, the students of Public Relations, Event Management and Corporate Communication, Institute of Business Management (IoBM) organized an event, titled ‘New Corporate Horizons’ on Saturday, March 4, 2017. Such corporate luminaries were invited to this occasion as Presidents, CEOs, Directors, Heads and Managers of leading local, national and multinational companies operating in Pakistan. The event comprised four main segments as follows: ‘Grassroots to Global parameters’, ‘Executive Humor – All smiles and giggles’, ‘Sharing Empowerment for a change’ and ‘Musical Melodies for the corporate sector’. A large number of IoBM students, faculty, management, staff, alumni and media were drawn to this event.

The eulogized theme of Faculty Mr. Parvez Jamil unfolded upon the audience a panorama of segments that are known to many but discussed by none. Such segments included ‘Grassroots to Global parameters’ in which experts explained the best practices that made national companies reach beyond the global horizon with their unmatched services and vision for business excellence. Another segment ‘Sharing Empowerment for a change’ allowed corporate gurus to dwell upon the concept of men and women working together in the corporate sector of Pakistan to benefit their organization and becoming a shining example for all. ‘Executive Humor’ was the segment during which a PR student shared office jokes to spread smiles and giggles among the attendees. Singers and musicians gave a stirring performance during the segment ‘Musical Melodies for the corporate sector’ by harmoniously blending soulful and decent corporate music into the event. Their tunes, songs and melodies thoroughly mesmerized the guests and attendees of the event. Mr. Talib Karim, Rector IoBM, acknowledged the presence of a galaxy of corporate luminaries present and felicitated faculty and students for organizing this innovative event.
