His areas of expertise include career guidance, counselling and teacher empowerment.
The seminar aimed at making the students develop a positive mental attitude towards life and exams.

Moreover, Qari Imran highlighted the significance of moral values, good ethics and virtuous character in a person’s life as they are the real benchmark of success. He also emphasized the importance of ‘Getting to know oneself as a learner’ is the first step towards achieving success.
It was an interactive session with the students actively participating and raising questions. The resource person gave valuable tips and the students were elated at having been provided with a platform to discuss their queries.
The seminar was received positively as it provided a heightened sense of aspiration and self-belief in the students and promoted a positive attitude towards learning and examination.
