For Team NASSCOM, adrenalin is kicking as we are only a week away from the NASSCOM India Leadership Forum 2011. I just wanted to take this opportunity to remind the members who have not registered already to get onboard.
But before I invite you to register, let me convenience you why you need to be there. Our Keynotes this year are being delivered by Raghuram G. Rajan, Eric J. Gleacher Distinguished Service Professor of Finance, University of Chicago, Michael Rogers, Futurist-in Residence, The New York Times, Viswanathan Anand, Indian Chess Grandmaster and World Champion; Louis Chênevert, Chairman, CEO, UTC; Bill McCracken, Chief Executive Officer, CA Technologies, Michael L Tushman, Professor, Harvard Business School; Nandan Nilekani, Chairman, UIDAI, Azim Premji, Chairman, Wipro Ltd; John Sculley, Former President and CEO, Pepsi, Shekhar Kapoor, Director, Film Personality; Shiv Nadar, Founder, HCL & Chairman, Shiv Nadar Foundation; N Chandrasekaran, Chief Executive Officer, Managing Director, Tata Consultancy Services.
The grand finale will of course be with the valedictory address by US Commerce Secretary Gary Locke.
We also have three MasterClasses lined up for you. The faculty includes Robert Swan, Officer of British Empire – the first person in history to walk to both the North and South Poles. Then we have Michael L Tushman, Professor, Harvard Business School hand holding us on Innovation, and of course John Scully, the man who fired Steve Jobs once upon a time and has the lessons from conquests and defeats in brand building to share with you.
We have spared a special effort to beef up the networking opportunities for attendees. There are networking opportunities with Breakfast Meets, Roundtables, Leader2Leader sessions, Idea Incubator, and much more.
And finally, on the lighter, there are two special evenings that we have designed for you to let your hair down.
P.S: Forgot the contest where you could walk away with gift hampers and maybe even an iPad every day. Looking forward to meeting you there.
