BusinessWeek's CEO Insights forum on 3 March

MUMBAI: "CEO Insights - Deepening Reform, embracing change: competing to win in global markets" an event organised by BusinessWeek Events in partnership with dnmStrategies, Atos Origin, InvestHK, Universitas 21 Global will be held at Mumbai's Oberoi Hotels on 3 March 2003.


The keynote address will be delivered by Maharashtra's minister for finance and planning Jayant R Patil and some of the other panelists include Singapore based dnmStrategies CKO Dr Chandru Rajam, FICCI adviser Vivek Bharati, Birla Brothers MD SK Birla, Mastek CMD Ashank Desai, I-Flex Solutions CEO Deepak Ghaisas, Nike South Asia manager Hemendra Jhaveri, O&M South Asia chairman and O&M India MD Ranjan Kapur, CRISIL MD R Ravimohan, Philips India CEO K Ramachandran amongst others.

The series for business leaders designed to address the challenges of managing in the vibrant, yet emerging, markets of Asia seems to be a promising one. The theme of this series - Deepening Reform, Embracing Change: Competing to Win in Global Markets - addresses the unique challenges facing companies in a region that has established itself firmly as the bridge between modern capital, technology and talent and the millions of people evolving into middle-class consumers.

This year's agenda will focus on the turbulent political environment facing companies in South and Southeast Asia. In the continually unfolding aftermath of 9-11, executives struggle to make sense of the political imperatives and the implications they hold for business.

It will also focus on corporate governance, the area of debate which has only become increasingly murky over the past year. Does what is going on in America have any bearing on the reality in Asia? Well, some say No, but the captains of industry, could offer insights on the state of governance.

Furthermore, the forum will address other pressing questions such as: What is the impact of China, the juggernaut that appears of late to be eating every emerging economy's lunch? Do you have a China strategy? What can we learn from companies that are meeting with success in that dynamic economy? Or take technology. Have you considered web services, the value propositions that are helping companies realize the true promise of the Internet, after the insanity of the dot-com era?

All of these issues have one thing in common: they baffle the average executive, but, whatever you do, don't suffer in silence! Leadership is, after all, about empowering the right people with the right expertise, and giving them reason to function as experienced professionals. Well, that too just happens to be on the agenda at CEO Insights!

The philosophy behind CEO Insights is to create a truly interactive environment that maximizes dialogue, discussion and debate. Participants are encouraged to share their insights, raise questions, interact with speakers and get to know one another.

A number of carefully designed features make BusinessWeek conferences in Asia unique. These include: a talk-show format, a discussion panel in every session, the use of interactive polling devices, ample time for dialogue and conversation breaks and receptions for networking.

3 March 9 am - Navigating Whitewater: strategies for coping with political and economic uncertainty 0:45 am - The strategy trap: emphasizing formulation, ignoring execution

12:00 noon - Participants will have the opportunity to select a discussion group of their choice. Discussion leaders will share their professional and personal insights in the areas where they have made significant impact and facilitated change. Lunch will be served during the session.

a) The ROI challenge: Where is the interest in my IT investments?

b) Collaborative marketing: how corporations and customers co-create value

1:30 pm - CEO unplugged: leadership in an era of empowerment and excess!

3:15 pm - Looking to the future: a CEO's guide to tomorrow's technologies

4:30 pm - Enter the dragon: what the fastest growing economy means for you!
