LET YOUR NETWORK WORK
Here is a question I asked myself – How important is a network in the life of a Professional? When I became a CA and joined a big four and subsequently a corporate, I never realised the need for a strong network.
Active professional networking is vital to the growth of career and knowledge. Building networks involves getting to know more and more people by meeting them in person or over social networking sites. Fostering a long-term relationship and establishing a good professional reputation over time is the key to successful networking.
Networking can provide the right opportunity to build mutually beneficial relationships with other professionals in your industry. Whether you are looking for a job or for a candidate to fill in your vacancy at your organisation, Networking does help a lot.
Having the right contact in your network is the key to success. Here are a few examples of the sources of the network:

A. LECTURE MEETING ON SPIRITUALITY IN PROFESSIONAL LIFE
On 12th July 2022, BCAS organised a hybrid lecture meeting on “Spirituality in Professional Life (for inner peace, self-sufficiency & abundance)” by Swami Swatmananda.
Swamiji also discussed the importance of ‘mental health’ and explained how to conserve mental energy. The best way to live life is to have no regrets about the past and no anxiety about the future. Methods to keep up the mental strength: deep breathing, solving logical puzzles, counting backwards (like 50 to 1), do not ask ‘why’, instead ask ‘how’, and meditate.
