About us

Founded in 2013, PWK is a flagship program of the Presentation Success Movement (PSM) aimed at ending the infamous “presentation-poverty” which is limiting the lifetime income potential for our youth, creating a drag in their personal lives and the economy alike.

PSM works as a national platform to aware, test, and train students from across Bangladesh. PWK is PSM’s annual testing platform whereby students compete to show their acquired skills along the four dimensions of presentations: storytelling, verbal delivery, quick analytical thinking, and instant selling.

PWK 2017 is the fourth edition of this national competition and has gained somewhat of a cult-like following among its target groups. The previous toppers in this platform include students from some of the best and the brightest universities of the country.

The Gala Round of PWK is usually held as part of the Presentation Success Summit (PSS), the flagship annual event of PSM for inspiring, raising awareness about, and celebrating the power of “presentations” in making our lives bigger and better. The topic usually centers on instant selling in rather unique contexts. It is noteworthy that the Presentation Success Summit (PSS) is an amalgamation of three things: PWK Gala Night, presentation inspiration sessions, and training workshops for thousands of youngsters across the country.

The need for a “nationwide” coordinated movement for developing presentation skills for today’s youth was conceived by Md Saimum Hossain, the entrepreneur and educator. All three of the activities mentioned above (PSM, PWK, and PSS) are thus led by him along with a passionate group of volunteers from different universities of Bangladesh.
