About ISB Leadership Summit

The ISB Leadership Summit (ILS) is an annual two-day conclave conducted by the Post Graduate Programme in Management. ILS brings together some of the best minds in industry, policy and academia for interactive discussions. With the aim of developing perspective and inspiring the student body, ILS attracts an eclectic and diverse audience. Attendees at previous ILS editions have included PGP and Executive MBA students, industry titans, thought leaders and eminent business families of Hyderabad. Some distinguished leaders who have previously helped us spark the debate include:

  • H.E. Korn Dabbaransi, Former Deputy Prime Minister of Thailand
  • Kumar Mangalam Birla, Chairman, Aditya Birla Group
  • Arun Maira, Member of Planning Commission of India and former Chairman of BCG
  • James Michael Lyngdoh, former Chief Election Commissioner of India
Theme of ILS 2013: “Breaking the Myth”
At ILS, we address issues that are most pertinent to current business situations. In today’s ever-changing world, it is of utmost importance for businesses to evolve and for individuals to question age-old perceptions. Global incidents in the recent past have forced us to rethink what was once believed to be true; the financial crisis begged a closer look at the seemingly robust banking system, the Arab Spring changed the equation of political regimes, and a more instantly connected world threw up dizzying possibilities of marketing.

As India charts its growth strategy for the coming decade, we require our leaders to revisit and critically examine what has been handed down through the ages as ’right’ and ‘true’. This year, we celebrate the 11th year of ILS by Breaking the Myth’. ILS 2013 will host a gamut of speakers and experts. ISB’s professional clubs will present and host panels showcasing industry and vertical-specific expertise.
