Delhi Public School Dhaka (DPS STS) recently organized a webinar titled ‘Let’s Talk! – How to manage finances during pandemic’ focusing on financial management during the pandemic crisis. Prominent motivational speaker Alpesh Parikh played the role of the keynote speaker in the one-hour-long informative session. The session was facilitated by Shalini Agarwalla, Dean of Activities from DPS STS School.
Alpesh Parikh is the Managing Director of Gulmohar Greens – Golf & Country Club Ltd, one of the finest golf courses in India. He is a Harvard scholar and an entrepreneur with specialized knowledge of the finer aspects of financial management. DPS STS School invited him to share his views and expertise in the webinar attended by students, parents, and staff of DPS STS Dhaka to help them attain a better understanding of the ongoing economic crisis, picture a scenario of the upcoming years, and plan their own finances according to the resolutions of the discussions. Alpesh Parikh also shed light on the bogged down lives of the family members due to the lockdown for the COVID-19 pandemic, and advised on how every member can contribute to the family happiness.
He said, “We began an interesting practice in our home called ‘No complain day’, where we had one specific day in the week when the children cannot complain about anything. This worked like a charm. Children gradually understood that the times are now critical, the family finances are now tight, and so they should also act more responsibly when it comes to expenses. We all need such tweaks in our families to have a fun and efficient time amidst the ongoing pandemic”.
He added, “We human beings are very intelligent, and we tend to remember for a long time what causes us to suffer. So even when the pandemic is over, we will still bear subtle anxiety regarding our finance and health. We have to be more compassionate towards others in our home and outside to help each other overcome the trauma of COVID-19”.
Madhu Wal, Principal, DPS STS School Dhaka, said, “Alpesh Parikh is a brilliant speaker who can motivate the listeners with his intelligence and sense of humor. We are glad and thankful to have him instruct our webinar attendees with some amazing ideas and strategies which we believe would be helpful to attain a better financial management skill during the pandemic crisis”.
DPS STS offered interested individuals outside their organization as well to join the webinar, with a limited number of seats available. Parents, staff, and other attendees reported being better informed about their financial stability recommendations after the webinar.
