|Investment||As the good book says Train up the child in the way he should go, so that when he is old he will not depart from it. We as a club have adopted this as our motto.
Our main aim is to inculcate the idea of investment in the minds of our members, let them love and appreciate it in their youthful ages. |
We educate them through various means, the types of investments, their characteristics and processes involve in each type of investment. Members are told of great investors and how they led the lives. Our activities and lessons in a way form a second class for our business students.
But as a school, members are constantly reminded about Paul Clitheroe quote, "Invest in yourself. Your career is the engine of your wealth." As at now the stage is set for the establishment of a bank (BBIS – Bank of BIS) and our website will soon be hosted on the World Wide Web. The enthusiasm with which club members involve themselves in club activities is overwhelming.
We will not wait to be told to go to the ant and learn its ways. The time to learn about investment is now. We will make hay as the sun is shining.

Regardless of ones ambitions, career path or dreams, there’s a good chance that one day they will be required to make a speech in public. It may be a presentation to school or work colleagues it may be a toast at a friend’s wedding or a statement at a community meeting.
Whatever the purpose, almost every one of us will be involved in public speaking in some form at some point in our lives, so we need to be prepared to do a good job when that time comes. Also, employers consistently rank public speaking and related communication skills as one of the top skills they look for in employees.
Finally, being an effective public speaker gives you the tools to make a difference in your business, in your community, even in the world.
