Sakal Media Group's 'Delivering Change Forum 2017' aims to bring socio-economic transformation

Sakal Media Group organized Delivering Change Forum (DCF) on 24th and 25th January, 2017 at Nehru Centre, Mumbai. DCF was a platform created for inspiration, learning, and transformation for leaders from diverse fields, focused on building better governments, better businesses, and a better society.

Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, inaugurated the conference organized by Sakal Media Group and DCF (the advisory arm of Sakal Media Group), in co-operation with Maharashtra state government and several prestigious institutions from across the globe. In his inaugural speech, Fadnavis said, “This is the right time to implement new concepts leading to transformation in a country, which has the largest youth population in the world. We have to strive hard so that these new emerging concepts reach policy makers and then are implemented.”

DCF Founder and Chairman Abhijit Pawar elaborated on the concept of the conference. He said, “Connecting boardroom to grassroots is crucial for bringing about a desired change in society and Delivering Change Forum (DCF) aims at connecting the dots and converging efforts for this transformation.” He further added that “Maharashtra has a large pool of youth and it needs to be channelized to bring about the desired transformation.” Pawar urged the participants to join hands for this purpose. “The Sakal Media Group and DCF are platforms for development of women, youth, and all sections of society,” he said.

The DCF has been a forum to facilitate experts coming from various walks of life, working on various projects to bring in socio-economic transformation for the betterment of society. DCF has taken the lead in this direction. Experts from various countries and eminent invitees from across the state, who are active in several fields, will collaborate to bring about a positive change in Maharashtra.

Explaining the rationale, Pradeep Dwivedi, CEO, Sakal Media Group, said “In today’s context, media has to transcend from being a passive informer and act as a vital catalyst for larger change and progress in society. Hence, this conference was designed with enriching content and brought a world-class line-up of speakers discussing key trends, innovations, and concept-proven models, all of which have one objective in mind: To help deliver positive change in society and lead more effectively in the current environment.”

Commenting on the occasion, Krishna Menon, CMO, Sakal Media Group, said, “Sakal is fulfilling its social commitment through initiatives such as Tanishka and YIN. As the social change is underway, developments in financial, educational, and social sectors should reach all sections of society.”

Many eminent personalities committed to bring about a positive change in society by going beyond their respective professional goals, attended this two-day conference, which culminated in a progressive commitment to transformation in the state of Maharashtra.
