CEO’s Got Talent was a unique property created by FremantleMedia India. The on-ground event comprised of several acts ranging from classical singing, jive dance moves to playing musical instruments and stand-up comedy. The event was filled with energy and vigor as the top management of India Inc. came together in support of Genesis Foundation. These acts were judged by a distinguished panel of jury members including renowned actor Raveena Tandon, celebrated director-producer Mahesh Bhatt and Raj Nayak, CEO - COLORS.
Upon being declared the winner of CEO’s Got Talent, Atul Khatri, CEO of Kaytek Computer Services Pvt. Ltd. said, “Owing to our hectic routines, we often find it difficult to pursue our passions. CEO’s Got Talent has given us the experience that has been truly enriching and a welcome break from our busy schedules. This feels extremely special because we have come out of the board rooms to showcase our talent and give back to the society by supporting Genesis Foundation.”
Talking about the event, Anupama Mandloi, Managing Director - FremantleMedia India said, “We were very excited to launch such a unique initiative adapted from our global ‘Got Talent’ Franchise. We wish to reach out to the core business leaders of the country with CNBC TV18 as our broadcast partner. This formed a great platform for senior management of the country to showcase their talent outside the corporate board rooms!”
Mr. Krishnadeep Baruah, Senior Marketing Director – BBM (APAC) said, “Setting up BBM Channels through this initiative, we provided leaders of corporate India an opportunity to promote their talent. As part of this format, the CEOs set up their own BBM Channels and therefore had a number of fans following them through their channels page. The number of subscribers on their BBM channel contributed to their overall score. This tool has acted as a rich community-building tool.”
CEO’s Got Talent showcased India Inc.’s leaders in a manner never seen before, even by their peers. Proceeds from the auctioned painting by well-known artist Subra went to Genesis Foundation.
