The PGPMAX Leadership Summit is a flagship event of ISB’s PGPMAX (Post Graduate Programme in Management for Senior Executives), annually organised by the programme alumni and students with an aim to bring the current and future leaders from the ISB community under one roof. The theme for this year’s summit is “Where Leaders Meet – Strategy, Synergy, Success”.

The Hon’ble Governor was welcomed to the summit by Dean Madan Pillutla.

Speaking at the event, Dr. Soundararajan shared some management lessons by drawing examples from her personal experience. She laid emphasis on focusing on the finer aspects of management and asserted that if smaller things are done correctly, greater things will follow in due course.

“Managing our sub-ordinates, assistants, and workforce is an art. Whatever may be the business, if we are able to manage our workforce, we can achieve half the success,” she said.

The Hon’ble Governor also spoke about success, failures, and the importance of having a positive approach. “We should celebrate success even when we face failures if all our efforts are sincere. We should sharpen our skills and grow constantly, no matter where we are at, otherwise there are thousands who will overtake us,” she said.
