Kelani Cables PLC, Sri Lanka’s number one brand in secure electrical and communication cables held its annual scholarly converse forum ‘Kelani Cables Knowledge Forum 2016’ recently at Water’s Edge. This year’s theme was ‘Your Life and Your Business’.

The latest trends in the world in the business arena and forecasted future challenges were shared with them at the forum.

This time’s forum had a participation of over 250 personnel comprising engineers, project managers, CEOs, managing directors and general managers of companies in the respective sectors. The topic taken for discussion with examples at Kelani Knowledge Forum 2016 was ‘Privacy and Businesses’.  Kelani Cables PLC Director/CEO Mahinda Saranapala expressing his views said, Kelani Knowledge Forum is treated as a corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme by the company as it shares the latest know-how in the trade with local engineers and company heads and facilitates them to benchmark with those latest trends in the engineering and construction sectors.


“Kelani Cables has become the top-of-the-mind brand name in the local engineering and construction arena over the years. Thus, it is our responsibility to share the latest global knowledge pertaining to engineering and construction with professionals of the local sphere. This forum thus has become an annual event,” said the Director/CEO.


He added, “In earlier occasions we invited a veteran in the electrical engineering field to address the forum. This time around we have deviated from that to invite a veteran management consultant. The object was to provide the forum with the knowledge of privacy and business development, which is of utmost importance to the current business sector.”
