NASSCOM India Leadership Forum 2012

  1. 1. 20th edition register now IndIaLeadershIp Forum February 14 – 16, Grand hyatt, mumbai
  2. 2. 2012 is a landmark To our delight and satisfaction, the NASSCOM India Leadership Forum (NILF) has witnessed 20 springs. And two decades sure is a long time. So we thought it best that we dedicate this 20th edition of the forum to the world’s journey from the simple and stable to complex and complicated. If there was a single phrase to describe this transition, it would probably be ‘Hyper Specialisation’ — the metamorphosis from simple one-directional supply chains to multi-dimensional supply networks, from the desk phone to the handphone and now the unified communication platforms, from boxed organisational charts to tangled ecosystem meshes, from onsite hosting to cloud hosting, the evolution is still rolling… It is not surprising then, that the definition of leadership has come a long way from where we started. Whatever be your calling, have you thought what it would take to sustain your leadership positions in such a hyper specialised world? Join us at the NASSCOM India Leadership Forum 2012 between February 14-16 at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai, to toss some of these questions in the air and get some well-baked answers. What’s special 20th successive year A humbling responsibility to beat our own benchmark A heady mix of IT and non-IT speakers for lateral wisdom Leadership keynotes to redefine what the ‘New Edge’ will be Transformational stories that changed lives MasterClasses for focused handholding on macro issues Idea incubators for in-depth and output-driven discussions Conference format that allows multiple ideas to thrive in multi-tracks Participation from industry, customers, governments and countries Social events to mix business with pleasure A bit of philanthropy to make the world a better place2 NASSCOM India Leadership Forum 2012
  3. 3. NILF has undisputedly evolved into a must attend forum. For service providers, customers, analysts, academia, it is certainly, the place to be. Given the business-to-business interaction that we have witnessed in the recent years at the forum, the event has metamorphosed into a ‘Mecca’ of networking where you are most likely to find your match for partnerships and joint opportunities. I am looking forward to every minute of the mega edition in 2012 and earnestly hope that you all will be by our side.Rajendra S PawarChairman, NASSCOM andChairman & Co-founder, NIIT Group Bringing together over 2,000 delegates, 30 countries, more than 150 speakers is a phenomenal milestone. And getting a forum of this scale to complete 19 seamleass and successful editions clearly, needs a seriousness of purpose. Over these years, we all have put our shoulders to the wheel to get this juggernaut going and have been blessed with new accolades, year-after-year. The 20th edition is a landmark both for the industry and NASSCOM and I am keenly awaiting your engagement for the same.Natarajan ChandrasekaranVice ChairmanCEO & MD, Tata Consultancy Services At 20, NASSCOM India Leadership Forum has blossomed into a full-grown international event that has found its place on the map of the best events globally. The journey from being a small industry event to an internationally-acclaimed thought leadership forum has been a humbling one. I am delighted to see the interest that these three days of active deliberations, on industry and outside of industry issues, has generated in the recent past. It will be my proud privilege to host you at Mumbai in 2012, to celebrate the 20th edition of NILF.Som MittalPresident, NASSCOM NASSCOM India Leadership Forum 2012 3
