The other speakers include lawyer preacher Bhai Manjeet Singh, Sukhveer Kaur (Himmat Support Group, Penang), educationist Dr Gurcharan Singh, Sikh Naujawan Sabha Malaysia Jathedar Dr Jasbir Singh, management trainer Harban Singh and Dasmesh Pipe Band founder Sukdev Singh.
“Some 250 participants have already registered. We still have space for more,” one event volunteer told Asia Samachar when contacted this evening.
