The Informatics Institute of Technology, or better known as IIT, is hosting an Open Day next week. The idea is to give prospective students a glimpse into what IIT has to offer. Visitors will get to see firsthand what life at IIT is like. Here, you would have the opportunity to take a look at the campus, talk to current students and also get to know the panel of lecturers.
This coming 24th, the Open Day will see three prominent individuals take stage to motivate and inspire budding future career professionals at IIT.
Prassanna Pathmanathan is an international trainer and a motivational speaker with over 5 years of experience in a variety of fields. These include fields like IT, Business, Advertising, PR, Communication, Marketing, and Education. Additionally, he is also a lecturer and a project supervisor at IIT, where he lectures for the Information Systems with Business Management degree programs.
Despite his education in IT, Prassanna had a keen interest in fashion. Starting out at 23, his interest in fashion turned into fashion journalism. In 2009, he was appointed as the chief editor of Agora online magazine. Fast forward to 2018, his experience as a corporate trainer and a public speaker has allowed him to conduct over training programs in over 80 companies.
At the IIT Open Day, Prassanna Pathmanathan will talk all about Career Guidance and Personal Branding.
She was titled Miss Sri Lanka 2009. She was appointed as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for Sri Lanka. Her portfolio even includes a few movies, including a Bollywood performance (Aalaap). Gamya Wijayadasa is a name that needs no introduction.

If you’re into tech and spend your fair share of time on YouTube, then surely you would have come across his videos. Andro Dollar, is basically a channel that focuses on tech, or more specifically smartphones.
