Panjim, March 2013, Goa Institute of Management (GIM) in association with Goa Tourism Department organised its annual corporate quiz WIZBIZ 2013. This year’s edition of WIZBIZ saw a tournament of different events.
WIZBIZ 2013 brought together members of the corporate world from various sectors across the country. The event provided the 16 participants an ideal platform for fierce intellectual competition and also allowing them to harness their talents. L&T Finance Ltd., IBM, HDFC, TCS, Oracle, SBI, Metro Cash & Carry, Morpheus Human Consulting were some of the participating corporate institutions.
Quizmaster Avinash Mudaliar returned to the GIM campus, with a bang, conducting the quiz for the 11th time. It is his affinity and immense love for GIM that keeps bringing him back, making him an essential part of the GIM family. He has been the former Secretary of the Karnataka Quiz Association (KQA), South India's foremost Quizzing organization, having conducted more than 700 quizzes, and won over 800 odd. He is thus able to cover a variety of areas of specialty, enabling him to connect things in innovative ways. Avinash was a great success with the audience as well; he had the audience rolling on the floor with his well-timed punch lines directed at the students and the faculty alike, making the evening even more entertaining.
The winners, Rohan Khanna and Amit Pandya of Genpact Quest were glorifying in their victory. Runners Up R Jayakantan, Sreekanth G of TCS, were not far behind either. However all participants were seasoned quizzers, most of who had been quizzing for the better part of their lives. Although they were leading pretty busy corporate lives themselves, it was the love of quizzing that got them together from different cities in India to GIM for WIZBIZ.
Wizbiz 2013 was held in association with Goa Tourism Department and co-sponsors State Bank of India, NRB Group, Bank of India, Cafe Coffee Day, Aguada Anchorage, Neel Beverages, UB Group, Four Seasons, Coco Cola, Dempo, CMM Logistics, Magsons and Dare2Compete.com.
This landmark event has created a brand for itself. Quizmaster Mudaliar says “Content wise, WIZBIZ is undoubtedly the best quizzing event in India. Moreover, the hospitality towards every participant is fantastic and that is how they go back with very pleasant memories making WIZBIZ one of the most premium quizzing destinations of the country.”
