The objective of this session is to make you believe.

Belief is not what we can see or hear. It is a feeling inside of us which gives us the strength and courage to do.

We would like to share with you our story so far. We are two management graduates who believed that business can be run differently and that rules of management will help you start and not sustain. We are fortunate to have had the opportunity to redefine things and the courage to push the limits. We believe that the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. (Copy Credit: Steve Jobs - Thank You)

We would like to say that we are here to share our success story, but that would be misleading! Instead, we are here to talk about our belief that we will be successful one day.


Things happen to those who believe. Whether it is a patient who believes he can get better, a first time trekker who believes he can finish the trek or a little girl who believes in Santa Claus.

You will not be able to truly give yourself to anything unless you believe that there is more than a fighting chance of you being able to achieve it.

Belief is a beginning. It does not matter what you believe in, what matters is how strongly you believe in it. Everyone needs to believe that things will happen and once you start doing that, a very beautiful life will begin to unfold for you.

There are many things you could believe in. But we would like to touch upon some of the key things we believe in.

Believe in Dreams. Only then they come true
Believe in Doing. Procrastination will just slow down your journey
Believe in Change. For this is the only constant, right?
Believe in People. Everyone is trying, give them a chance
Believe in Collaboration. Its better together
Believe in Energies. Things happen for a reason, even if you don't understand
Believe in Love. It is for real
Believe in Tomorrow. Its always brighter and sunnier than today
Believe in Yourself. For it is you who will change the world.

Miracles and magic don't just happen. They happen when you believe that they will.


An open mind.
A projector.
Speakers with an aux cable input.

Speaker bio

Shweta Thakur and Shinoy Thomas are the founders of a creative agency based out of Bangalore called Graffiti Collaborative. Graffiti provides brand consultancy services in digital marketing, web and graphic design, films and apps. Graffiti has been able to see 3 years of its existence purely because of the belief system we have had.

We are also the founders of India's only creativity and innovation festival called Ruins of the Renaissance. The festival of this magnitude took place only because there were a bunch of people who believed in it with us.

We also organise the India chapter of Mashable's International Social Media Day.

And we would like to share stories from here to make you appreciate the power of belief.
