Jot Talk is an initiative by the GLS Institute of Design. It is an event that is organised once every two years. Jot Talk is a platform that brings eminent Speakers from the Design fraternity on board to share their views about the world of Design and the journey that they have traveled to reach where they have arrived today. The primary objective of Jot Talk is to share their life experiences with our Design students, followed by dialogues, debates and discussions. Each speaker has precious gems of wisdom to share with the students. The students are left spellbound by their aura and eloquence and find the backstories of their struggles even more exciting and motivating. The presentations are studded with some fantastic designs that have won them accolades from the world of Design.
