Online PR News – 20-December-2010 – – Lucknow, 20th December: Manfest, IIM Lucknow’s annual international business conclave, announces the launch of its flagship international event with Treatise, the thought challenge. This competition, which hosted students from Stanford to Singapore last year, is a series of debates on the bellwether issues of our times.

Treatise recognizes informed debate and deliberation as the foundation of modern democracy and civilized life, giving fresh wings to this medium of expression by hosting it end-to-end on the popular social media site Facebook.

Says Manfest coordinator Anand Dorairaj, “Democracy and progress is all about getting inclusive in our outlook: By launching a flagship event exclusively on Facebook, we intend to throw open a quality debating forum to a truly wide variety of views.”

Social media, over the next few years, will shape the way we make decisions. As global conglomerates and even old-world companies wake up to this new power, Manfest exhibits the medium’s capacity for serious thought.

To be held in an engagingly interactive format with Facebook “posts” and “comments”, Treatise is designed to inform, entertain and reward - both the participants and audience. With refreshingly honest topics that are relevant to the changing times, Treatise is guaranteed to offer sumptuous food for thought and a riveting battle of minds.

The debates will be publicly displayed on the Treatise Facebook page, and will be open to comments from viewers. What’s more, viewers get cash prizes for the best comment every day.
