A musical eve with versatile, eloquent, charming, mesmerizing Dipsite musicians, singers,

Also an opportunity for young Dipsites to showcase their passion, aspirations, talent.

Going forward:
I request Dipsites and my friends in the Advertising, Marketing & Promotions domain to please
advise and help.

1. How to reach out to Dipsites of different DPS schools who are aspiring musicians,
singers, dancers, stand up comics..
(Thought of making a 1 minute simple video calling for participation- and putting it up on
YouTube, FaceBook.other social media; writing to Principals of various DPS schools
seeking their assistance in sending us details of such alumni of their DPS school.)

2. Will then need another video that has Dipsites saying, ‘I’m going to be there. And you?’

Current status:
* Two young Dipsites (from DPS sector 45 Gurgaon) both of whom are musicians will come
over on Sunday to start the planning process.

Need help, folks! Let’s make it a night to remember!

2nd Career Growth Workshop at DPS Noida on Sat. 18th Oct. 2014

In a world buzzing with endless advice on which Career to choose, what to do after school….your Dipsites Association has created a quiet space where High School DPS students can hear senior Dipsites about their journey; and begin to think differently.
Career Growth Workshops is about sharing ‘the element of personal discovery’, truths about capacity for achievement, balance, and fulfillment, in some defined professional areas.
 
You will be happy to know that efforts by your Alumni Association assisted by Dipsite Simrat Gulati and Rekha Bajpe Aggarwal, are in full steam for the 2nd Career Growth Workshop for students of DPS Noida at the school on Sat. 18th Oct. 2014 from 9am-2 pm
 
The feedback from the students and school is that the 25 Dipsites, including 3 from overseas, who volunteered to speak at the 1st Career Growth Workshop at DPS sector 45 Gurgaon on Sat. 19th July 2014 were extremely enthusiastic, cared genuinely about what they are doing, the people with whom they work, and the people they serve. They expressed a joy that seemed to come from deep within, not forced or superficial. One could sense their genuineness and believe they were not just playing a role for last 2 to 3 decades. 
One student even commented, ‘Meeting these senior Dipsites, one realizes their work is consistent with their purpose. You might say they are living on purpose.’
How gratifying to hear such wonderful thought from DPS students. 
 
Please click here to see the empty slots and volunteer. 
Or point us to some Dipsite (alumnus of any DPS school) who might not yet be on our database but would be happy to spare 4-5 hours on Saturday 18th Oct. morning…to share the journey of their professional life.
