Essence of Fiji managing director, Debra Sadranu, is all geared up to speak during the Genda Connections event on June 11 at Life Cinemas in Nadi.

Genda Connections is a live event featuring eight speakers from different backgrounds who are invited to discuss their ideas, share their stories and to inspire and motivate.

Ms Sadranu said: “This initiative is really great. Personally I think it is aimed at our local middle executives.

“I see it as a means for inspiring people to aim higher regardless of their challenges. Everybody needs a role model or mentor who can inspire them and lead the way.”

 

Genda Project

The Genda Project Founder and Event Curator of Genda Connections, Sharon Narayan started the organisation in 2015 with a hope to inspire Fijians to pursue happiness and find them in this small island nation of ours.

The Genda Project (Genda refers to the marigold flower in Hindi) is a local initiative providing spaces and platforms to challenge people of all ages to venture out of their comfort zone, question themselves and question others.

Nadi Chamber of Commerce and Industry secretary Shalendra Prasad said the chamber is extremely pleased to join hands with the Genda Project.

“It is a first of its kind in the country and indeed a very inspiring and motivating initiative taken by one visionary and inspired individual,” he said.

“We congratulate Sharon Narayan on her latest venture and are proud to be walking side by side to ensure her project grows from strength to strength and also inspires thousands of Fijians to go out and do something great for their country.”

 

Living your dreams

Ms Narayan said Genda Connections strives to connect Fijian audiences to local individuals breaking the norms and living their dreams.

“By providing these individuals a platform to share their ideas and stories, we hope to disrupt and motivate a new generation of Fijians to toso, reach out and live in the pursuit of their happiness with integrity,” she said.

“We hope to move, inspire and ultimately make our audiences realise the value of making their own stories count.

“We believe these stories have to power to change people’s lives; their thinking, their attitudes and their contribution to the wider community.

“Through Genda Connections, we hope to spark conversations that matter and ultimately a more conscious thinking society.”

 

The event

Genda Connections Nadi is the second event of its kind with the first having been held in Suva in March this year.

Mr Prasad said the eight speakers carefully selected by Curator Sharon were not just successful business stories but inspirational human stories.

Ms Narayan said certain percentage of the proceeds raised from the event will go to the Rotaract Club of Nadi, New Horizons towards their TC Winston rehabilitation project.

Tickets $45 are now selling at Life Cinemas and through Nadi Rotaract. Tickets include a choice of beverage (both alcoholic & non-alcoholic) and finger foods during networking interval.
