Edith Wharton the award winning American novelist, short story writer and designer said that There are two ways to spread the light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

The Management Club (TMC) has over the years been a Mirror that reflects the light from the candle of knowledge through their efforts in organising Quiz events for five consecutive years.
The Management Club (TMC), was formed in 2002, under the auspices of the Chartered Management Institute and has over the years grown to become a place for professional managers in Sri Lanka to network and interact while sharing and gaining from the experiences of one another.
TMC had the good fortune of having Sri Lanka's representative of the International Quizzing Association ( IQA) , Ruwan Senanayake, himself an ardent quizzer, as one of its founder members, who readily responded to their idea of conducting a table quiz event, when this proposal came up for discussion in June 2006.

Thus the TMC Wisdom Quiz was launched in September that year and was an instant hit with Quizzing enthusiasts in Sri Lanka, who welcomed the high standard of the questions, the seriousness with which the event was conducted and the professionalism that the team at TMC added to its success.
This Quiz event has always been worked out to perfection, and in the most competitive spirit - tie breaker rounds being required to decide the top slots, almost all the time.
The sixth annual TMC Wisdom Quiz will be worked out at the Galle Face Hotel on Saturday 24th September from 4 pm.
TMC is pleased that they have been able to continue this event uninterrupted for the past five years at the same venue, with greater interest from the participants during each successive year, that has now made it the most popular Table Quiz event in Sri Lanka.
