‘Confidence is good, but over-confidence is bad. Confidence is very important in life for everyone. But when a person becomes over-confident, he takes such great risks as are beyond his capacity to deal with successfully. It is like fighting against the laws of nature, which is the mistake committed by the millennials most of the time’ thus said Ms. Shoba Arun, Head C-TEA Corporate Technology & Engineering Academy, L & T, Mysuru, during the invited talk delivered to the PGDM 2019-21 Batch organized as a part of the orientation program held on July 2, 2019.

She threw light on how these millennials are altering the very social fabric of the world, how they are disrupting retail, hospitality, transportation, environment and travel, how they will soon radically change higher education and how they are disrupting the work culture?
 
She acknowledged us about the six functional changes of millennials compared to the previous generations which is called the “Big Six”. This was followed by Question & Answers session.
