Create your Own Opportunities in Life was the theme of the inaugural BOLD Conversations forum at the UNITE/School of Engineering building at the Howard College campus.

More than 100 students listened attentively as popular newspaper columnist, film director and stand-up comic, Masood Boomgaard, urged students to take charge of their destinies. ‘Manage your time, don’t be afraid to fail and learn from your failure,’ Boomgaard told the multi-disciplinary group of students.

BOLD Conversations aims to encourage self-reflection and critical dialogue within the student body and is part of the holistically focused Business Organisational and Leadership Development (BOLD) initiative which promotes personal development through constructive action.
