IPL Speakers Initiative:

Jobs matter! As a part of this crucial team, you will help nurture the budding product talent and create product talent for the industry. As highly successful leaders in your domain, this is the time to give back to your alma mater and the product community by helping create and CONNECT talent to possible areas where they can shine.

Examples include designing productathons, hackathons and working with hiring managers in the industry.

As a part of this team, you will be responsible for connecting IPL to your company or any corporate you have enough influence over. The idea is to engage with IPL over a ‘Lunch and Learn’ session.

You are the one who wears the hat! As a coach and mentor, you will be responsible for helping out and nurturing the current students to be their best. Coaching and mentoring would require this team to deep dive into each individual’s areas of improvement. Coaching will also involve mentoring product labs teams and helping them become awesome product leaders.

Be The Brand Ambassador for IPL! As part of this team, you will act as IPL evangelists on various online and offline community platforms including Linkedin, Quora, Facebook and Twitter. Contributing thought leadership content and helping nurture the IPL brand will be the focus on this team. Needless to say being a thought leader and having a high social impact are a reflection of true leadership skills.

Give back to the community as a public speaker! If you are a public speaker or want to be one, sign up for the IPL Speakers Initiative. Register your expertise and interest areas for speaking and we will contact you as and when speaking opportunities open up!

Additionally, we are offering exclusive coaching sessions for API members at our Koramangala campus. If you need help in shaping your keynotes/speeches, we have expert Toastmasters to help!
