an event at which a politician or public official answers questions from members of the public.
noun: town hall meeting; plural noun: town hall meetings
This is the meaning that would pop up on Google when you type “town hall meaning”. Reading the meaning of the coupling, it gives a great sense of democracy of a system. Apart from the literal meaning of democracy, it can be harmlessly said that it is synonymous to transparency. In a system, ‘transparency’ is a part of the functioning and is very important for the smooth running of that system.
Not more than a year and a half back, Systematix started a great trend of bringing everyone on one platform to facilitate more ‘transparency’ to the system thus making it more democratic, by organizing- Town Hall Meeting, popularly known as the THM.
THM at Systematix is not only about a dialogue between the team and the leadership but is also a platform to motivate the recognized talent and also thank them for their contribution.
Venue- Basement of H.O.
Time- 7:00 PM
Date- 30th June 2017, Friday
The basement of the H.O. started filling up from 6:30 PM onward. People with white-clad t-shirts beaming with excitement added to the ‘whiteness’ of the space (the outspread white daris had brightened the ambiance up). In no time the basement was full of people from across verticals, offices, and geographies.
At 7, the THM began with what could be called as the anthem of the event- Itni Shakti Hame Dena Deta.
The THM furthered with the following:
