A Bejewelled Journey to experience, learn and network with the best of the jewellery industry!
August 2018- Jaipur | Mumbai | London
Educating yourself in the field of your expertise is a very important step, when wanting to create a place for yourself in the industry. But most of the times, education is limited to college courses and beyond that one gets strangled in work life and education ceases to grow. To break this mold, I have partnered with Questerra, (an experiential travel platform that helps one learn, network and grow in their relevant industries) and created a unique course called ‘THE JEWELLERY INTENSIVE’ that will help you experience, learn and network in the jewellery industry. And what better to learn from the industry stalwarts, each of whom are strong pillars of this industry.
For the ease of understanding, I have bifurcated the information in a FAQ format …
