11 Apr ; The Kellogg India Business Conference 2009 is on Saturday, April 18 at the Donald P. Jacobs Center, Northwestern University in Evanston (Chicago). The theme "Riding the Elephant: Sharing India’s Success" focuses on benefitting from India’s growth while making its development more inclusive.
Being successful at doing business in India can be quite a challenge to someone unfamiliar with the inner workings of the country. But in this challenge lies tremendous opportunity. Profiting from India goes hand-in-hand with making India and Indians better-off. All over India, both domestic and foreign companies are creating innovative solutions which not only allow them to tap into a large and previously ignored market but also improve the lives of India’s poor and rural populace.
The speakers at the KIBC 2009 will highlight these issues in what will be an eminently insightful and meaningful experience. Through the eyes of the elephant, we hope to show you how inclusive growth is being achieved every day.
This year’s conference speakers include prominent business leaders, seasoned entrepreneurs, and renowned academicians:
C.K. Prahalad – Leading management guru, author, and professor of corporate strategy. Considered the most influential thinker on business strategy today
