Speaking at the beginning of the BW Education Leadership Awards function, Hoshie Ghaswalla, Senior Vice President, of the Business World Group, outlined the objectives, motivations and rationale behind the awards instituted by BW Education.
He said he personally will like to see two things happening: Education becoming more exciting and enhance syllabuses to be better for student careers and life.
He explained the BW Education Leadership Awards, in their second year, were all about how the education ecosystem can be enhanced. Recognising contributors who help the students do better, and do better for their future! They were also in a way a voice in improving the policy making. They were a motivation and inspiration in dealing with youth, and in helping those behind education to be more productive and accountable.
