The seminar is based on my first book Academic Excellence, the synopsis of which goes as follows

This book is a modern day fable about achieving Academic Excellence. The protagonist is Amish Sharma, a city born teenager with all the resources a student would need to be successful. He was living the ideal teenage life with great friends, cool gadgets, lots of fast food and a family that loved him and met all his needs. He never really gave too much importance to Academics. Exams scared him and thus he stayed away from school. Everything was going great until one day his final 10th grade exams turned up. His lack luster attitude throughout the year, affected his performance and he failed a subject. His life then took a big turn around. The school wanted him to stay back a year. This left him devastated. He pleaded and finally after passing a re-test, he was allowed to go to the next standard.

He decided that this was never going to happen to him again and thus began his transformational journey to find the best in himself and achieve Academic Excellence. He meets Neil Shah, a great student, with a portfolio of achievements that made him the ideal mentor. Amish decided to find out how Neil did all he could, so that he too could find the best in himself. What follows is a life changing conversation between these two students, where Amish finds out how the best students achieve Academic Excellence. He learns many well-kept secrets of the best students from Neil. The book is divided into four main parts

1. 7 Steps to becoming a subject topper and falling in love with your subject.

2. Mastering your exams.

3. Understanding Student Topper Mindset and Physiology.

4. 11 Reasons why the best students become better.
