The objective of Josh Talks was to inspire audiences towards positive action. It brought city’s six personalities and their compelling life stories on centre-stage. Through the life stories, positive messages of courage, conviction, hope, spirit and enthusiasm were given to the audiences.

More than 250 participants attended Josh Gurgaon. These were mostly school and college students as well as youngsters from corporate houses, citizen groups, NGOs attended the event. The speakers for the event are Nisha Singh (Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon Councillor), Manoj Kohli (MD, Bharti Enterprises) , Deep Kalra ( Founder,, Neeti Palta ( a stand-up comedian), Vinita Singh( Trustee, We the People) and Navin Gulia ( author and motivational speaker). They are all from diverse backgrounds but those who have broken frontiers and risen against challenges in their respective fields. The event also has two performances as well to keep it lively and vibrant.
