Leaders in India - Business Forum 2009 is India`s Largest International Corporate Business Event That Brings Together an Amalgamation of Ideas between Visionary Leaders and the Upper Echelons of Management, Cutting across Sectoral and Global Boundaries MUMBAI, India--(Business Wire)-- Difficult business environments challenge even the most capable leaders and it is highly essential to stimulate the minds and passions of the highly intelligent motivated and time-poor corporate executives during a time like this. Seeking a focused business platform that is able to cut across all key sectors and verticals within the burgeoning Indian economy has for long been a challenge for many major firms wishing to regain their confidence and inspiration-especially in today`s environment. Informa, the owners of information super-brands including Lloyd`s List, Taylor & Francis and Datamonitor, have announced the first Indian edition of the world`s largest series of Leadership events. Leaders business fora command audiences of 1000s of top corporate executives every year, with speakers most recently including Kofi Annan, CK Prahalad, Philip Kotler, Stephen Covey, Richard Branson and Steve Forbes. Leaders in India is the latest edition of what is widely regarded as the world`s largest series of business leadership events, which so far have taken place annually in major international cities including London and Dubai. Informa, producers of the event, have received a particularly strong response from Indian and international organisations, with GE, JSW, Johnson & Johnson, Birla, Nokia and Abbot amongst many others already having confirmed their delegations to the event. "India is one of the most dynamic markets of the world, where innovation, business, and technical acumen will continue to grow and thrive for many years to come," says Donald Trump Jr. "I look forward to bringing many incredible projects to this market, which is now primed and ready for world class development." Trump Jr. has announced ambitious plans for investment in India`s real estate sector, and will elaborate on successfully dealing with the obstacles faced by international companies when entering the Indian market. Tom Peters, among the most influential management gurus of today, and renowned author of `In search of excellence,` will provide practical tools to tackle one of the most pressing issues on every CEO`s mind - `how to win the war for talent.` In spite of a more favorable employer`s market at present, the `war for talent` is expected to remain one of Indian business` paramount challenges as the country continues to develop rapidly over the coming decades. On why Informa has decided to bring `Leaders` to India, Abhaey Singh, Managing Director, Informa India, says that "Indians are ideas people - we love inspiration, and Leaders in India will be two days packed with the proverbial tingles down your spine." "But more than just that, our country is gradually positioning itself at the fore of the 21st Century knowledge economy. From our legendary IITs & IIMs, to our booming media and information industry; and from complex analyses performed for global firms in our KPO centres, to continual advances in indigenous rocket science - India`s inherent knowledge resources are now being more comprehensively harnessed by and interconnected with Indian and global business. So we think it`s an excellent time to leverage the hugely respected Leaders brand into this very exciting country," adds Singh. Featuring Indian leaders such as Adi Godrej, Kishore Biyani and Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, along with special guest speakers Abhinav Bindra and Shashi Tharoor, the event will also host The "IIBAAs" (Indo-International Business Achievement Awards), which has been instituted to acknowledge exceptional entrepreneurial and innovative talent, effective and responsible leadership & management, and the setting of new standards within Indian and global businesses.
