A workshop on “Becoming Industry Ready – Importance of Behavioral Skills” was held on Friday for more than 200 final-year Delhi Skills and Entrepreneurship University (DSEU) students. The event was led by EdMyst’s globally-renowned communication coach, Vijay Vikram Singh.
One of the country’s best voice-over professionals and voice coaches, Vijay is most famous for giving his voice to the Bigg Boss narration.
Prof. (Dr.) Rihan Khan Suri, the Pro-Vice Chancellor of DSEU, who has undertaken several initiatives to strengthen the industry-academia connection at DSEU, delivered the keynote for the event. He emphasized the value of developing their soft skills during the keynote as they prepare for their placements and the corporate experience.
The students were captivated by Vijay’s workshop as he discussed the value of a growth mindset, shared anecdotes about taking calculated risks, and provided practical frameworks and tools to help them improve communication skills relevant to the corporate world.
The CEO of EdMyst, Vivek Gupta, and Vijay demonstrated Edy, an AI-driven behavioral skilling application. With the click of a button, anyone can use the application to objectively assess their behavioral skills, such as conviction and resilience. Users only need to upload or record their video after choosing their context, such as sales presentation, interview preparation, etc. Users can then connect with coaching professionals for live one-on-one coaching sessions as needed depending on the analysis.
According to Dr. Neeta Pradhan, Head of Strategy & Partnerships of DSEU, the application can be very helpful for students in developing their overall personalities and interview preparation.
Further, Vivek Gupta said, “We are at the tipping point of a skill revolution. New-age business complexity and rapidly changing talent expectations require innovative solutions to make it easy for everyone to stay relevant and be a mainstream contributor.”
Using human-centered AI, behavioral science, and coaching professionals, EdMyst is a global platform that offers long-term behavioral transformation solutions for students and professionals. The final-year students of DSEU will receive complimentary access to Edy from EdMyst.
The purpose of the DSEU is to provide its students with a world-class skilling infrastructure to access aspirational jobs. This workshop and collaboration with EdMyst are in line with that objective.
