INLEADers @Dulux Club Partners Meet 2017

Students of INLEAD recently got a chance to work as volunteers in an event: Dulux Club Partners Meet 2017 at J. W. Marriot, Aerocity Delhi. The event was managed by an event company called WORKOHOLICS. There were two batches of volunteers (six in each) with different time slots (1st batch- 6.30 A.M to 12.00 A.M. and 2nd batch from 5 P.M. to 12.00 A.M.). Reaching venue at 6.30 a.m. the 1st batch was made familiar with the Venue and the event setup. Then a short brief about the event was shared with the team to make them understand, what the event was all about. It primarily was a grand event hosted for all partners including vendors and distributors of the brand Dulux paints from the company Akzo Nobel.

The work required grouping of plaques alphabetically and the  making welcome kits for the respective guests. It took almost about 4 hours to make the kits and arrange them near the welcome desk area. 

In the evening time, the volunteers were segregated into different groups of 3 or 4 in each. One group of student brought trophies at backstage and unpacked them. Two girls were given the responsibility of arranging trophies according to the felicitation flow. Others managed the welcome desk and helped the clients and management with miscellaneous activities. Another group was given responsibility of distributing welcome kits and gift to the guest in their rooms, while a third group was unpacking the left over kits. Another group was given a task for putting photographs in frames clicked in one zone and then sending them to their respective zones. 

Overall, the students had a great experience there and learned a lot. They understood the importance of how to work in coordination and in teams. It was 2 rigorous days, but students had a great experience.
