The university event ' Checkmate ' was coordinated under the guidance of organiser Mr. Jonah Aswin Selva and Co-organizer Ms. Laya Anna Lalan.

TEDxKCMT Checkmate was a highly engaging and thought-provoking event that brought together brilliant minds from various fields to share their ideas on topics spanning science, technology, entertainment, design, and more.
Checkmate refers to the so-called ultimate end of each of our life. The aim behind the theme of Checkmate is to help people in the final game and look forward to a way out.
The game doesn't necessarily have to end when the opponent calls a 'check', instead, consider it as a second chance at life to the King and strike back to 'CONQUER', likewise life doesn't end when someone calls a check against you rather it is an opportunity to Conquer and win the game.
The event provided a platform to noteworthy people such as Akhil Raghu, Dr Jimmy Mathew, Jaiden John Bose, Jithin Shah, Krishnalal G, Neethu Naduvethattu, Rijul Arora, Shailesh Modak to share their experiences of conquering each CHECK's in their life's.
