GIA In­dia Alumni Event Sees Huge Turnout

Solitaire - - COVER STORY -

GIA In­dia hosted a meet-and-greet event at its IIJS booth for more than 40 alumni from all over In­dia, who used the op­por­tu­nity to con­nect with friends and net­work for busi­ness. GIA Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion Chap­ters from Mum­bai, New Delhi, Jaipur, Su­rat and Kolkata joined in and sug­gested that meet­ings be held at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals. Some utilised this op­por­tu­nity to share ideas on how GIA In­dia can work closely with the alumni as­so­ci­a­tion chap­ters.

Speak­ing at the oc­ca­sion, Nirupa Bhatt, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of GIA In­dia and Mid­dle East, said, “I’m ex­cited that this event has re­ceived par­tic­i­pa­tion in great num­bers from all parts of In­dia. Many alumni ex­pressed the value of GIA cre­den­tials and how they add recog­ni­tion and cred­i­bil­ity to their ca­reers and busi­nesses. The suc­cess of the event is a tes­ti­mony to how close-knit the GIA alumni net­work is. We plan to con­duct gem­mo­log­i­cal and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment sem­i­nars to fur­ther en­gage alumni across In­dia.”

A sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion busi­ness­man, Yash Dhamani (GIA Grad­u­ate Gemol­o­gist), di­rec­tor of Na­tional Facets (Jaipur), said, “Be­ing a gem­stone man­u­fac­turer, it was an op­por­tu­nity for me to meet with the Mum­bai alumni, many of whom were jew­ellery de­sign­ers, jew­ellery man­u­fac­tur­ers, re­tail­ers and traders. This event served as a plat­form for GIA alumni to in­crease their ex­po­sure to like-minded pro­fes­sion­als, net­work and de­velop stronger bonds, which is al­ways re­ward­ing. With hun­dreds of mem­bers, GIA alumni events pro­vide a global busi­ness net­work that re­mains un­matched.”
