Global Leaders India Summit draws participation from renowned business gurus

The first ever Global Leaders India Summit, which will be held in Mumbai on November 28-29, 2006, has received confirmed participation from 12 of the world’s most inspiring business and thought leaders.

The panel of confirmed speakers include Rudolph Giuliani, former Mayor of New York; Tom Peters, one of the most influential business thinkers of all time; Carly Fiorina, former Chairperson and CEO, Hewlett Packard; Louis V Gerstner Jr, former Chairman, IBM Corporation; and Martin Roll, leading strategist on Asian branding excellence. The top Indian leaders who will share their experience at the Summit include Sunil Bharti Mittal, Naina Lal Kidwai, Vijay Mallya, F C Kohli, Madhur Bajaj, Kishore Biyani and JJ Irani.

Tina Schneidermann, President of Global Leaders, the company organising the event, said, “We are extremely pleased to bring the Global Leaders Summit to India. This premier event will provide business executives, entrepreneurs and government officials in India with a great opportunity to learn from and interact with 12 of the most foremost leaders in the world, all of whom have confirmed their attendance already. The strong line-up of global speakers include Indian names, who will provide valuable insights on leadership.”

“All speakers are the best in their fields and will provide an international perspective on issues that impact existing and potential leaders in India. The new sense of confidence in India has seen a new style of leadership emerging in the country. The new age leaders are committed to democratic values, transparency and integrity”, Schneidermann added.

An Indian leaders’ foundation will be set up in association with the event to involve regional leadership influencers in the build up, during and post-event to generate interest and debate the pressing Indian leadership issues.

According to Martin Roll, CEO, VentureRepublic, and author of ‘Asian Brand Strategy’, “India is on the verge of merging as a global economic and technological superpower. The coming decades will put India to an acid test. This successful transition demands visionary leaders who recognise the global complexities and who can make bold moves into the future. India inevitable needs to move further up the value chain and build long term competitive advantages beyond its current success industries. A sea change of capabilities and mindsets that demands visionary leaders who dares to take calculated risk, be prepared for the unforeseen and who can create their own market space. Asian cultures have always valued the long-term aspects in almost any aspect of life, so the Indian business leaders have all opportunities at hand. It is time to turn visions into action.”

The summit has Kingfisher Airlines as its Platinum Sponsor.
