Cerebrate2010: an event for achievers

Cerebrate is an invite only event wherein a group of hand picked achievers from various fields are brought together and discuss and ideate. Each of the achiever who’s invited to Cerebrate has a great deal of passion in what they do. Their achievements and experiences, when shared in a group of similar achievers from other fields makes it a wonderful event, because there’s so much to learn, much more to unlearn. Special care has been taken to ensure that the event stays remarkably unique from a typical conference which tend to get boring even before they begin. 

I had an opportunity to take part in the latest edition of Cerebrate, held at Marg Tapovan, some 80 kms off Chennai. I was involved in this more as an organizer than anything else. Previous editions of Cerebrate were held at Club Mahindra Verca beach Goa and Kumbalbagh respectively.

I’ll publish some more posts about the event, before that below is a quick introduction of invitees who spoke their heart out and made Cerebrate a wonderful experience.

From Cerebrate2010

It was great experience and inspiration spending 3 days in the company of so many achievers, who may not carry a high profile tag but each one had deep passion in what they did and doing. The experience they shared might take a lifetime for others to learn. Standby for more details of the event


  1. Wonderful event. To listen to what this wonderful personalties have to say is a privilege.

  2. Good to know - many personalities gathering in a place and sharing their experiences, achievements! Synergy expected.

  3. Good to know that women in this new and shining India have not achieved much. Well they must be really passionate about staying home and serving these passionate achievers right?

    Was it a careless misstep by organizers? Or were women excluded? I see only one lady in the group.

    Appreciate your comment.
    This was noted as a feedback that there's to be equal number of women in the group.

    There were a few more who were supposed to come but they dropped out.

    Organizers will be taking extra efforts in this regard for future editions
