Developing communication skills

To examine the spontaneity and wit of the participants, the Communication Club, Brainware University organised an Inter-college Extempore Competition titled “Off the Cuff” on March 21, 2022 from 9:30 AM. Mr. Biswajit Roy (Training and Placement Manager), Ms. Jennifer Shaheen Hossain(Assistant Professor, Department of Media Science) and Ms. Monami Mukherjee (Assistant Professor, Department of English and Literary Studies) were the judges of this event.

With the objective of making the students articulate, fluent and erudite in English, the participants were assigned random topics to speak on. The topics included social media, online games, tourism, mental well-being and many more. The participants were judged on the basis of content, confidence, voice modulation, pronunciation and overall impact.

As the competition progressed, the students slowly let go of their inhibitions and participated enthusiastically. “It is commendable that you people participate in such events which help in shrugging off your inhibitions.” Students from other colleges like Swami Vivekananda Nursing College (Bangalore) were also present in this event.

After an intense two hours of oratory, on various topics Prathamesh Vijay (BPA), Subham Chatterjee (BMJ) and Sayna Mondal (BBALLB) were declared 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively. There were three other critics' choice awards to boost the confidence of the students. The communication club congratulates the winners and applauds all the participants for their effort and determination.
