TheRodinhoods Delhi Open House (November 9, 2013) Agenda

This is an uncanny coincidence! Last year Ad:tech took Alok to B’lore and we had a small mixer. This year in February, Ad:tech brought Alok to Delhi and we had a great Open House.

But this time, the Rodinhooders of Delhi have invited Alok to an Open House with the promise of KICKING UP A MIGHTY STORM!! We know time is short, but we have an awesome venue (IIT), two down-to-earth inspiring guest speakers, a theme that resonates with most of us. And of course, we have Rodinhood himself, always a pleasure to watch live on stage 🙂


Here is the proposed Agenda for TheRodinhoods Delhi Open House to be held on 9th of Novemeber. Check the venue details here and pls RSVP. But most importantly, if you have been looking for the opportunity to make a presentation at one of our Open Houses, this could be your calling…!
