In his keynote address said that Today’s knowledge session is unique in many ways. It is not on a typical business topic with which Chambers of Commerce are generally known for or are associated with. It is on a very interesting topic and it is Art Collection. Arts promote an advanced level of thinking that can be applied in other academic disciplines and beyond. Individuals learn about magnificence and proportion. Participating in arts and learning about culture increases leadership ability. Learners attain skills in different areas such as making choices; tactic building, thinking, and forecasting which are vital skills for leadership and leading a positive life.
