Choose To Thinq was invited to conduct a quiz at the prestigious S. P. Jain Institute of Management and Research in Mumbai on the 7th of December 2016. Grey Matter is a quiz with the aim of engaging and bringing together people from different programs in the institute, who otherwise do not mingle with each other. This included faculty, staff and PG students. Thus the age of the participants ranged from 30 to 70 years! We even lent them a hand to promote the quiz internally, by providing questions.
The quizmaster for the day was J. Ramanand. It was coordinated with the help of Deven Deshpande.
The quiz was on general knowledge, with a slight emphasis on 'Business', since it was in a management institution. Almost 30 3-member teams participated. The top 4 teams were taken into the finals with 2 more from among the faculty and staff. The quiz had a tight finish as all the participants were well prepared and quick to recall and deduce the answers from the clues provided. The winner was declared by the last question, that too on a buzzer!
We strive to add something different in every quiz or engagement event we do. This time was no different. We has a special third 'Super-Sub' round. In this round, one member of each team was replaced with members from teams which had just missed out: the 'honourable' mentions. Needless to say this was very-well received and added to fulfilling the objective of the event: Engaging with people in the institute you don't generally interact with on a daily basis.
The organization was efficient (management institute after all! :) ) and the audience added to the excitement with their active participation.
Overall, another successful wrap!
