NTB corporate quiz a success

The cream of Sri Lanka’s corporate sector was entertained to a audio-visual experience at the Nations Trust Bank Corporate Quiz last week in which 39 teams took part. Based on the theme of ‘surviving’ the corporate jungle, the event was complete with tribal décor, lights and a blazing flame within a forest setting that added to the excitement of the night, the Bank said.

Round one went to Hayleys Industrial Solutions with second place being tied by Aitken Spence, John Keells Holdings (JKH), Carsons Cumberbatch and Commercial Leasing. Round Two on Current Affairs saw Amba Research taking the lead followed by Brandix, Forbes and Walker, and JKH.

Round three that posed questions on Financial Markets saw the expertise of Brandix and Hayleys Industrial tied, with JKH and Amba following closely. Round Four on Sports once again saw Brandix going on to lead the round with Union Assurance joining the other leaders.

Round five on Entertainment saw the quiz leaders on this occasion being joined by Tigo who came on strongly in the round. Amba ended up as the final winner, walking away with Rs 250,000 in prize money while runners up JKH received Rs. 100,000. Brandix secured third place followed by Hayleys Industrial, Aitken Spence and Carsons Cumberbatch.
