Q. What is the most challenging aspect of your job?
A. Choosing the best hotel, restaurant, band, photographers, and making other necessary arrangements for the meeting is perhaps my most challenging task. I have to do this task scrupulously so that all our members are happy and get to connect in the best possible environment. Also, organizing the whole event is a complicated job since there are many details to take into account.

Q. What can attending to Annual Meeting do for members?
A. The meetings help to foster a collaborative spirit by bringing together all the members. Moreover, the formal meetings and the informal chitchats, day tours and parties help to strengthen the bonding among the network members. Because of the Coronavirus we couldn’t arrange an in-person meeting in the last two years. Therefore, we are very excited since after two long years we are eagerly waiting to meet our members in person. We received loads of good comments about the organization and good connections made by Conqueror members, which is by far our best reward.
Honesty, expertise, independence, loyalty, and fairness are some of the values that drive me… I believe that the success of our team lies with the success of our members.
