Checkmate was the first event conducted by TEDxKCMT on July 13, 2019 from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. The university event ' Checkmate ' was coordinated under the guidance of organiser Mr. Jonah Aswin Selva and Co-organizer Ms. Laya Anna Lalan. It was held at the KJ auditorium, where around 100 participants had attended the event.

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.

TEDxKCMT Checkmate aimed to inspire positive social change through critical thinking and innovative problem-solving. Overall, this event was not only informative but also inspiring, empowering people to embrace new challenges and make meaningful contributions to a better future.

Optimism and resilience are the keys to transcendence. Mindset matters and even a tinge of optimism is supremely potent. The refinement of our fighting spirit is paramount. 

Our abilities and true potential have been suppressed for far too long. Now is the time for re-awakening. TEDxKCMT LIVE was meticulously crafted for the purpose of reawakening. A congregation for unravelling the intricacies of human nature and the world.

It is not the time to cower in fear nor the time to falter.

It is the time to courageously delve into the world of uncertainty with OPTIMISM as your primary weapon. To point out that optimism is the perfect opportunity to surpass your former self.
