In a recently conducted event, Toehold’s Jayanth Sharma was a keynote speaker and mentor to nearly 60 individuals who were participating in the HP ZChangemaker contest. The idea of the contest was to encourage creative individuals by offering them encouragement and support through HP’s CSR initiative called ZChangemaker.
In an hour-long keynote presentation, Jayanth Sharma shared the power of creativity and how it need not be just a reflection of society but an idea that can also influence positive change. Jayanth showed how he uses his photography to make people fall in love with nature and wildlife, which he believes is the stepping stone of conservation.
Followed by a series of talks, the participants presented their ideas as they pitched to the jury (Jayanth being one of them). Two candidates were selected and will be sent to Delhi to participate in this contest further.
