IEEE YP Sri Lanka’s LETs Talk Continues its Legacy in 2020

Continuing its streak for the 4th year, LETs Talk series successfully completed its 6th and 7th sessions, “Mani Talks Money” and “Corona is not the Only Virus” on the 8th April and 19th May 2020. Both sessions were conducted online due to the pandemic and addressed timely issues.

Mr. Manosh Kulasena graced the “Mani Talks Money” session as the speaker, focusing on “how to boost your family financial immunity during a crisis” since the lockdown compelled people to take drastic actions financially, leaving them in bitter circumstances. “Corona is not the Only Virus” panel discussion was conducted to spread cybersecurity awareness among the young professionals, required to work online from home despite cybersecurity threats. The panel included prominent cybersecurity experts, Messrs. Sujit Christy, Kavinga Abeywardena, Mohan Chathuranga and Kanishka Yapa. These sessions attracted 150 live participants. This series of LETs talk events will be continued throughout the year.
