Honorable ICT state minister on Grameenphone Academy Stage

Grameenphone Academy has recently hosted another impactful Masterclass, this time with host Zunaid Ahmed Palak MP, the Hon’ble State Minister of ICT Division, as the Guest Speaker.

350+ academy students along with GP senior leaders in the audience panel listened to the vision of Smart Bangladesh 2041 and its connection to the future leaders of the nation. Minister conducted 40 minutes QnA session after his masterclass and took notes of the academy students’ comment and questions. The academy will collaborate with ICT ministry to share the concept notes of the students to the ministry.

The journey of crucial stakeholder engagement is always a challenging role that the Social Impact team played this time directly getting into the field. Visiting ICT ministry, tracking every calendar day, getting the minister’s call in the mid-night, potential chaos threat of political movement of both party on the same day were making the whole show nerve wrecking. however, as proverb goes ‘all well that ends well’- this goes for us this time. Finally, it came out as one of the most successful events in terms of stakeholder engagement. It was a one-hour session for the minister which overrun by 70 minutes.

At the event, Grameenphone CEO Yasir Azman told, “TIME is NOW, for us to focus on getting future-fit, and unleash the potential of Bangladesh in the coming days. We must keep an open mind for learning and growing, because the heights of our dreams determine the heights of our next achievements”.
