From the frontlines of change: Corporate titans to shine at the India Today Conclave

Leading luminaries of the corporate world – Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and MD, Reliance Industries; Anand Mahindra, Executive Chairman, Mahindra Group; Adi Godrej, Chairman, Godrej Group; Deepak Parekh, Chairman, HDFC and Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Founder and CEO – are all set to shine at the India Today Conclave this year.

The industry titans will fuel new ways of thinking by touching upon relevant topics during the panel discussion spread over two days. On the first day of the event, India Inc will discuss issues ranging from the problem of private investment to e-economy and the possibility of making India more attractive as an investment destination. The second day will see a keynote address by Mukesh Ambani, who will be speaking on ‘Why Technology Will Change India’, as a ‘21st Century Optimist’.

Talking about the Conclave, one of the notable speakers, Anand Mahindra, Chairman and MD of Mahindra Group said, “In the letter inviting me to participate in the India Today Conclave 2017, Aroon Purie said that the Conclave has always ‘been in constant conversation with the times we live in’.  Conversation… I love that word. In these disruptive times, that is what we need the most. Not heated arguments, not divisive debate, but conversations leading to the promise of greater understanding and better resolution of issues. I believe the India Today Conclave will add enormously to our insights into our increasingly unpredictable world.”

India Today Conclave is a unique platform where the sharpest minds from across the globe converge to discuss and debate issues from around the world. Taking a break from previous years, the India Today Group’s signature event will be held in Mumbai this time, on March 17 and March 18. ‘The Great Disruption’, the theme of the India Today Conclave this year, will feature ground-breaking ideas, innovative experiences, and thought-provoking debates.

There will be two days of talking, listening, thinking, doing, and experiencing. From President Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and former President of France (2007 -2012), Nicolas Sarkozy, to giants of the corporate world and stalwarts from Bollywood, the list of speakers this year is bigger and bolder, heralding a wave of change.
 
Conclave Director Kalli Purie said, “This edition of the India Today Conclave is a progressive and directional platform that aims to contribute in rebuilding the disrupted social order. This specially designed multi-sensory experience, spread across two days, will be a great opportunity to listen to some of the sharpest minds across the world, get inspired, and take some meaningful memories back home. We believe that significant conversations are the way to generate solutions and the Conclave promotes just that. From mobile movie premieres, spell-binding stage performances, curated experiences, and gourmet delights – there’s lots that one can enjoy at the Conclave, apart from a powerful thought flow.”
