From RK’s Desk

Friends, I thank you wholeheartedly – individually and on the behalf of my team – for making LearnFlux a huge success.

It was a pleasure to host you and learn a lot from industry experts. A huge thank you to all the keynote speakers and attendees. It was heartening to meet some of you in all sessions. Thank you all for your time and support which has helped us feed 4,200 needy people in our city of Hyderabad. 

We hope you enjoyed participating in LearnFlux as much as we enjoyed hosting it for you.

It is a time for us to stay and tide over together. We will keep the collaboration going strong as we have more of such events lined up. Do watch this space for the details.

Learnflux Team

Be safe, be healthy.
