This is Mansi Saxena. I was one of the 12 paper presenters in the CA Students' Conference held by WICASA Vadodara. I presented my paper in Technical Session 4 on the topic 'New Avenues & Startup Ideas For CAs.' My paper was the Best Paper presented in TS4 and here I am, sharing my experience on the same.
The conference was held on 25th & 26th Dec 2020, virtually on Airmeet. On the first day, in the inaugral session we had a great time listening and learning from various dignitariess of our CA community like our honorable President, CA. Atul Kumar Gupta sir, our VP, CA. Nihar Jambusaria sir, CA. Jay Chhaira sir and various other CCMs and members of WIRC.
It was a humbling experience to listen to our senior members. They have a vast amount of knowledge and advice for us. And do not shy away on sharing them. You just have to ask. Be it on investing, Indian and world economy, artificial intelligence, the new farm bill, skill building, new avenues for CAs and many more interesting topics.
The paper presenters also very well presented papers on a vast variety of topics. The research and hardwork done by them was visible. So kudos to all of them! Keep rocking guys!
Where do you find a place nowadays where you can have fun in cultural sessions, network and know a lot of insightful information as well? Very few places.
Ergo, I would urge everyone to definitely take part in the various conferences that are organised by the student associations all over India. Be it as a volunteer, paper presenter or an audience as well. This is a platform where you meet a lot of people. Make new friends, network, speak to the senior members and enjoy as well.
One more advice is, BE CURIOUS. You'll learn a lot of new things, good things about the professional you are going to become in the near future.
Organising a conference is tough, but virtually, it becomes 10 times tougher. Hence, a big thumbs up to WICASA Vadodra as well for smoothly organising the conference. Keep up the good work!
