Welcome Speech for a Seminar in Office
Honourable Chief Executive Officer, Honourable Vice President and Board of Directors, Respected Members of Information Technology Department, Dear Colleagues, Ladies and Gentlemen,
It gives me immense pleasure in welcoming all of you to the 5th annual seminar of --------- Food Ltd. Established in 2010, the company today has reached the heights of great success. Our company was established with a vision to serve society with the production of quality processed food and beverages. We focus more on the middle and low-income group who want to consume quality products within a limited budget. Our target audiences are the locals of this place as well as business people who operate within a range of 50 kilometres.
But seeing the success of our company and the popularity of our products, the management has decided to expand the area of business. Now we want to target the high-income group people as well as increase the range of our business operations to other states too and subsequently to other countries. After an in-depth brainstorming session and discussion amongst the management and all other relevant stakeholders, it has been decided that the organisation will adopt digitalisation as a means of promoting itself amongst the people, apart from other traditional means.
Digitalisation is one of the greatest means of transforming society in the present era. It directs the virtual transformation of almost every component of our life today; the style of working, the means of living, the way of communication, building knowledge, doing business, etc. Digitalisation influences our welfare, democracy, healthcare, environment and society overall.
It won’t be incorrect to say that digitalisation is revolutionary and has majorly changed the face of promotion and marketing too. Digitalisation is the greatest channel of globalisation as it connects people worldwide within fractions of seconds. Thus, it will certainly help our company in meeting its objectives too. With the advent of 2017, we plan to enhance our marketing scope to some other Asian countries like Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Hong Kong and the Philippines.
Having said this, we can’t ignore the fact that digitalisation has its own challenges and shortcomings too. Some of the challenges which we may face today are reaching out to those people who don’t have access to the internet or who live in remote areas. After devoting careful thought to this problem, the management committee has come up with different promotion plans to reach out to those people. Our objective is to bring the benefits of our quality products to the maximum people and thus we have engaged one of the best marketing teams to promote our brand and services to the countries discussed above.
But one drawback of the digitalisation is the privacy breach. Today, digitalisation requires proficient handling of problems relating to security and privacy.
This seminar has been organised to discuss all these and many more issues which may occur during the further development and promotion of our brand and services. Well-known experts, researchers and managers from the industries and society have been invited to present their views and discuss the opportunities, threat, strengths and weaknesses of the subject.
I hope you have an engaging and enriching session ahead.
Welcome Speech for Seminar in College
Good Morning to one & all present,
Respected -----------------------, Director of --------------- University, Principal Madam, Professor ------------------, Presiding Officer of IIT, distinguished guests, my dear students and ladies & gentlemen.
Today we all have gathered here to discuss a very important topic i.e. “Women Rights & the Gender Justice”, which is the most vehemently discussed issue with significant implications for the future of women.
It is a bitter reality that the women have been ill-treated in society for ages with India being no acceptance. The irony lies in the fact for our country that women are worshipped in the form of Shakti whereas in reality she is just treated as a commodity and subjected to inhuman treatment. She is discriminated at two levels: The first being women and secondly, having a lack of economic independence.
The issue of gender justice is nowadays being raised by activists and academics because of women’s increasing demand for equality. But still, they have to face a lot of discrimination. Actually, this problem is not confined to India, but women in European countries too face harassment & unfair treatment.
Gradually, women have been coming forward and playing their roles in diverse fields such as banking, finance, marketing, civil services, aviation and even armed forces. Perhaps, that may be the reason why the Government of India, has launched a series of initiatives to raise awareness about women’s rights through mass media campaigns, seminars, training programmes and workshops etc to improve a lot of women in the country.
Against this backdrop, we have assembled here to know more about the topic with many eminent speakers lined up for today’s seminar. With this brief background, I would welcome our Chief Guest Mr. -----------------, Director of ----- University for sharing his views on this pertinent subject. I want to also welcome our participants who have come up here to ------- College from all across the country to present their views on the very topic.
I would, on the behalf of our College, again thank you -------------------for accepting our invitation and would like to extend my gratitude towards our Principal Madam for encouraging us to conduct a seminar like this today. I am again thankful to you Madam, for your kind support, suggestions and guidance given to us, as and when required.
I feel honoured to welcome all the parents & my fellow colleagues for taking a keen part in this important programme.
I am sure that you all will feel enriched with knowledge after completion of this event. I welcome you all once again to the Seminar and hope that you all will have a great time ahead.
Thank You All!
Welcome Speech for Science Seminar
Hon’ble Chief Guest, Hon’ble Head of the Department, Respected Researchers, Respected Senior Doctors, Dear Colleague Doctors, Dear Interns, Ladies & Gentlemen,
We have gathered here to discuss the scope of Radiology in treating various injuries and diseases in our Hospital – ‘Health & Care for you’. I am highly honoured to take this opportunity, on behalf of the Hospital and Head of Department, to welcome all of you today to this one-day Seminar.
We have amongst us several distinguished personalities who are highly qualified and possess vast knowledge and experience in the field of radiology. Our Hospital ‘Health & Care for you’ was established in the year 2000 with an objective to help patients suffering from abdominal cancer across India. Our mission is to root out the cause of cancer and treat the critical patients whose chance of survival is minimal. We have been highly successful so far and by the year 2015, we got pretty good exposure in foreign countries too which led us to open branches in Saudi Arabia and Singapore.
We have highly qualified and eminent doctors who are more like guardians to the patients, which is one of the core reasons why the patients recover soon. The hospital was established with a social cause and thus 40% of the funds get contributed towards treating the poor and needy people.
We have gathered here to discuss the scope of radiology in treating cancer. Our hospital uses and employs several methodologies in detecting the cause of cancer and subsequently treating the same, but technology has made several advancements in the field of medical science. Radiology is one of such technologies which we are going to discuss in detail today in this seminar.
Radiology employs imaging technologies like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), X-ray radiography, Nuclear Medicine, Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasound and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) to observe within the body of the human being in order to detect diseases and abnormalities and subsequently treat the same. A further analysis exhibited that a radiographer is a health professional who is university-trained and works with progressive technology to produce CT Scan, X-rays, MRI Scans and several other medical images to support clinical radiologists and doctors identify, observe or treat the injury and illness of patients.
We will also discuss the scope of other modern technologies which have brought a revolution in the field of the medical field. Having said this, I would like to reiterate that science has no bar. It has endless scope and opportunities. Like you all know, the mission of our hospital is to treat maximum patients with the positive result; with the same objective, we have arranged this seminar and invited several dignified personalities from the field of Research & Development, Radiology Department, Senior Medical Doctors, Cancer Specialists and Chemotherapists. We would request them to share their experience and expertise which would help us in making our hospital more prominent and renowned worldwide.
I hope you all find this seminar highly engaging, fruitful and beneficial for your future venture.
Welcome Speech for School Seminar
Hon’ble Chief Guest, Respected Principal, Respected Vice Principal, Respected Board Members, Dear Staff, Dear Students, Ladies and Gentlemen!
It gives me immense pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to all of you present here on behalf of the entire school council. I would also like to express our gratitude to our esteemed judges who have accepted our invitation to preside over this School Seminar on Personal Development.
St. Mary’s High School, established in the year of 1967 has completed 50 glorious years in providing quality education as well as exposure to its students in different fields. It is extremely gratifying that the school has reached great heights and realized its goals and objectives. The school conducts a seminar every year for the students to gain knowledge and actively engage in the school’s activities. Each and every topic was chosen is in the best interest of the students of this school. It is also made sure that the topics are engrossing and well-liked by the participants. Last year, the seminar was based on ‘’Accent Improvement’’ which has helped a lot of students in acquiring a finer accent in the English language. The purpose of the seminar was to make our students as well as the staff, speak English more smoothly and accurately and to emphasize the importance of linking, stress, pausing and pitch while speaking.
Personal Development, this year’s topic, too will help the students to gain an understanding of life-changing skills and the focus would be mainly on the critical aspects like goal setting, improved confidence, leadership development, effective communication and life coaching. Like every year, faculties from different schools and professional bodies are called upon to communicate their ideas, views and knowledge on the subject matter. But today’s seminar is going to be somewhat different than the previous ones, as a private counselling session will also be conducted thereafter for the interested candidates.
Personal Development is essential for professionals and students who desire to achieve brilliance in their respective fields. Through this seminar, the students will be able to identify their weak spots that require improvement as well as the usual changes required in their living style. Apart from the personal development skills, students will also be taught how to improve their social skills.
The agenda of the seminar will include debates, viewpoints of different experts and motivation through real-life examples. The school will ensure to display all the key details on its official website for quick and easy access to all the significant aspects of the seminar.
I expect that the seminar will be productive and the next few hours will be enjoyable and fruitful to you all.
Thank you very much!
Welcome Speech for Class Seminar
Hon’ble Chief Guest, Hon’ble Vice President, Respected Principal, Respected teachers, Respected Heads of departments, Dear staff colleagues, Dear students and Ladies and Gentlemen!
It’s indeed a matter of great honour for me to welcome all of you today, on behalf of the entire college, to the 3rd annual seminar of the --------- College of Arts. The college was established in the year 2011 with a vision to create future leaders of tomorrow by imparting education, knowledge and skills. The objective of the college was not only to impart theoretical education but also to nurture our students and keep them rooted in the social culture and ethics. It’s highly thrilling to share that the college has reached the heights of success and achieved its goal to a large extent.
To make the subject interesting, we have started conducting the annual seminar since 2015. We keep fresh and emerging topics every year to keep the students interested and engaged; motivate them to participate warmly and discuss and share their thoughts and opinions. Last year the topic was ‘Internet Security’ and it was a great success. Since internet has become the necessity of almost every individual today especially the youth generation, it’s important that the security measures are also adopted while using the Internet in order to save oneself from unseen danger due to the security breach.
This year the topic we have chosen is the ‘Social Cause’. You must be aware that our college has partnered with two Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) working for the poor and deprived students and facilitate studies, education and means of living to those. In this one-day seminar, we will discuss the importance of the social cause, its impact on our college and society and how and why should our students contribute to the larger social cause.
Like every year, we have invited the subject matter experts and some common people who would share their views, experience, expertise and thoughts on the topic. The youth is the future of the nation and it is the responsibility of the college to create a better human being along with creating a good professional.
The seminar has been divided into certain segments like debates and discussions, theoretical views, facts and figures followed by the practical assignment which need to be accomplished by the next year. Even though working for the betterment of society is one’s individual choice, but we highly encourage our students and staff to vigorously participate in the activities that promote a social cause. Philanthropic activities not only bring accolades and reputation to the college but also boost the morale and consciousness of participants.
We are extremely hopeful that this seminar is also going to be a great success like every other year and we request for your support in making it a memorable and successful event.
