The event saw a massive attendance across categories that include professionals, students, education leaders, and members from the teaching fraternity.
Educating the audience on what it takes to be a winner and emphasising the need to learn new languages, Mr Kapil Dev said, “In my opinion, English, while being a universal language, is a critical skill. This skill of communication, thinking, and collaboration embedded in English is today at the core of business, trade, technology, and research. I decided to hone my English language skills early in my sporting career to help seamlessly exchange ideas, further refine them with the cricketing world. Today, it is helping in shaping and sharing my thoughts and ideas or enjoying my favourite Jazz Music. This ability of learning has helped me become an avid golfer too. Burlington English is a renowned name globally and has helped school children and adults worldwide become better communicators and accelerate their academic and professional growth. On their India launch, I wish them my best for their journey ahead in helping teachers, students, and professionals become winners with pedagogy-driven English language learning programmes supported by deep technology.”

While we are incredibly thrilled to have the living legend with us at this event, sharing details of his eventful life and how he mastered English, I am equally excited for our audience, who would leave the event with motivation and tips on how to pursue their dreams and ultimately ‘Be a winner’.”
