One of the famous quote by Heath Ledger from the movie the dark knight, but what if our skills include really good conversational skills and some easy to go socializing. How do we cash such a skill like this being from the commerce side of the society?
Well, if you considered colonial times like the Spartans or barbarians you may end up as philosopher or a spokesperson at max that too with all the luck left in your pocket.

OD practitioners are often involved in organising such events, a process which takes up much attention, time and resources. Understanding the meaning behind corporate events — and organising them well — will help make a positive impact on the organisation and its employees.
