The event, emceed by Ms. Kishwar Mubin Chowdhury, was facilitated by the teachers to encourage students to better understand the need for professional grooming and public speaking in order to improve their employability after graduation. From each section of the course, top two teams were shortlisted to participate in the competition, resulting in a total of 12 groups presenting on various renowned world leaders ranging from Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Oprah Winfrey, Angela Merkel, Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler to name a few.
