The Chief Guest, President and Heads of Departments next gave away the top three GPA Awards for each Department. This was followed by the GFP Awards that were given away by the Chief Guest and the President, marking the culmination of Awards distribution.
The eagerly awaited Chief Guest’s Keynote address followed next. Mr. Adamson enthralled the students about the stupendous achievements of Cargill during its journey of over 150 years. The company’s turnover during the year 2010-11 reached a staggering level of US $ 120 billion. Headquartered in Minneapolis, USA, the original promoter’s descendants Johugons and Cargill continue to run the organization.

Mr. Adamson also had a word of praise for our Students, whom he termed very bright, sharp and possessing excellent human values, in addition to the usual managerial qualities. This was based on his experience of recruiting four Students from EMPI in the past, some of whom work very closely with him. He advised Students to do whatever they take up, with passion and commitment and to be spontaneous. He expressed full confidence that Students of EMPI would do very well for themselves, their organizations and India. He received a standing ovation for his Keynote Address.
