Dear Mr. Sagar,
I am writing to remind you to attend our next Development Seminar on “Born and Raised (‘Made’) in India Managers – Geared for Global Success” with R. Gopalakrishnan & Ranjan Banerjee.
Abstract: Based on available evidence and interviews, a seasoned business professional and a top-academic come together to argue that indeed there is evidence of Indian Managers being geared for global success. They explore a cluster of reasons, which, though individually present in other societies, converge together uniquely in India—in what biologists term ‘emergence.’ Indian management academics and practice could well emerge even more strongly in the future, as a sort of ‘soft power’ from India. Already, many India-rooted ideas are the subject of deep international interest such as bottom-of-the -pyramid, conscious capitalism and mindfulness.
Bio: R. (Gopal) Gopalakrishnan is currently an author and corporate advisor. During his professional career of 50 years, he had served as Vice Chairman of Hindustan Unilever for 31 years and as a Director of Tata Sons for 19 years. He is a newspaper columnist, and the author of eight books, published over the last twelve years.
