LETs Talk was a project initiated with the aim of enhancing the knowledge of Young Professionals by delivering technical and non-technical talks with prominent personals in society. The participants will find the opportunity to listen to eminent professionals to gain and share expert knowledge. The speakers will explain opportunities, barriers, failures, success stories while educating the members about the common mistakes a student could make as they step into a career. Each session is structured, enabling the audience to interact with the speaker followed by the talk. This initiative is not only for IEEE Young Professionals but also for interested individuals with an engineering background behind them, including recent graduates and final year undergraduates. Importance of professional behaviour in the industry and how young professionals as an organisation, will guide its members through the process will be emphasised in sessions, thus IEEE members will continue as being a member of Young Professionals.
