THE PLATFORM The last one year has truly changed the way the world operates. We can see many themes impacting us such as that of COVID-19, the rise of “Make in India”, changing perceptions of China in the global market, and political / societal friction in the United States as a few examples. All these themes have had an impact on the Indian industrial landscape and things continue to evolve quite rapidly. Given this uncertainty (which brings both positives and concerns), there is a pressing need to understand what the way forward for professionals (especially young professionals who are about to enter the market) should be. This is the key theme of the Convention. We want to facilitate understanding of how to react to the changing world we live in. The topics and sessions will be extremely relevant to management students that will soon be entering a rapidly changing work environment. There are four topics that will be covered during the sessions, along with a Keynote session.

INAUGURAL SESSION t Keynote Address on “The impact of changing Geopolitics on the future, and what this means for India” t Inaugural Address by the Chief Guest.

SESSION I : Leadership and Purpose In the first session, we will cover two essential skills that professionals require to succeed in their careers; Leadership and Purpose. Our speaker for this comes from the military, and he will reference his vast experience to share learnings that can also be applied to civilian life.

SESSION II : Building a career – a 20-year journey We would like young graduates to know that a career is not built overnight. It is a journey, not a destination. In this session, a senior industry captain who has held leadership positions across various industries will share their story with us on what they wish they had known – back when they were just starting their careers.

SESSION III: Opportunities in chaos – Changing the rules of the game A great leader can take chaos and disorder and turn that into an advantage for their organizations. In this session, we will hear from some successful captains of industry that have taken crises and turned them into opportunities for their companies.

SESSION IV: Emotional well-being in tough times “Business as usual” is not a phrase you can use to describe the last few months – we have each faced and overcome challenges. It is likely that over your professional careers you will encounter obstacles again and it is important to be equipped to deal with them mentally when the appear. This session will equip you with the tools to do so.
