Thank you for joining us on our most awaited webinar!
Have you missed it? Watch the recording below!

It was lovely having over 3500+ attendees via Airmeet and Facebook live for our Defense Webinar!

  • Episode 3 on ‘How to join the defence forces – Hear from the Officers!’ had a huge turnout of attendees was no surprise! Speakers Col MG Venkatesh( Retd) and Grp Capt. Nitin Welde ( Retd) spoke brilliantly about how to join the armed forces and answered questions with alacrity along with sharing bits of their own experience. 
  • Most Defence Forces advertisements ask applicants in their slogan: “Do you have it in you?” Did you know that ‘it’ stands for Combat, Leadership and Potential? This was a wonderful eyeopener for the attendees! Topics ranged from the kind of documents one needs to carry for the SSB to filling up the PIQ forms truthfully and correctly. 
  • According to the officers, at least a year is needed for good, solid preparation for the SSB. This would also mean that aspirants could build their personality and inculcate OLQ’s which could then be fine-tuned and moulded with the right training, skillsets and experiences.
  • The attendees were also given tips on how to present themselves – besides having a great turnout, qualities like honesty and sincerity would also stand them in good stead whilst interacting with officers at their respective centers. We are sure NCC cadets can relate to this!

“So initially i was very skeptical about moderating a live session with 3000+ attendees, but as they say ‘It always seems impossible, until it’s done’, same was my thought when i was approached to be the moderator. The session came with a pack of responsibilities which uplifted my confidence and taught me the art of multitasking.
Sharing the screen with experienced speakers Col. Venkatesh & Gp Capt. Nitin Welde was a very enriching experience. I take great privilege to have gotten the opportunity to moderate the webinar and carry forward their advice to all the SSB aspirants across the country. Although i was very excited and nervous, i thoroughly enjoyed being the moderator, Last but not the least I was so motivated myself after seeing the questions coming in from our young audience. Wish you all Good luck.
