CEOs from north India to vie for ‘CEO's Got Talent’ trophy

NEW DELHI: After the popular show comes another that seeks to judge the best chief executive officers (CEOs) in the country; CEOs Got Talent. FremantleMedia has announced the second edition of the event to be held in New Delhi on 15 November featuring CEOs from India Inc. who will pit their unique talents against each other.

The first-of-its-kind event was created by FremantleMedia within its ‘Got Talent’ franchise to recognise the creativity and talent of CEOs and providing them with a platform to showcase a side to them that generally doesn’t come into view in their day-to-day business lives. And judging the CEOs will be Colors CEO Raj Nayak and Bollywood personalities Mahesh Bhatt and Neha Dhupia.

Produced by FremantleMedia, ‘CEOs Got Talent’ is an initiative powered by Karmyog Foundation and lifestyle partner Victorinox and its beneficiary Genesis Foundation. This initiative will see top CEOs from north India competing on a common stage for the coveted CEOs Got Talent trophy.

Proceeds from CEO’s Got Talent will go to Genesis Foundation, which provides financial support for life-saving and life-changing medical intervention for critically ill under-privileged children in the areas of cancer, cardiac disorder, post organ failure, thalassemia and extreme deformities.

To encourage and support this cause, the event will be attended by over 400 industry players comprising of CEO’s and other partners.

Speaking about the show Colors CEO Raj Nayak said, “I’m sure CEOs are bored of their board room presentations. This is a great platform for corporate head honchos to de-stress and show off the cool quotient in their personalities.”

Acclaimed filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt commented, “Spotting talent is a heart-warming adventure for me. It's even more exciting if you have to spot talent amongst CEOs - the head honchos of our corporate society. It was a hell of an experience judging the first event held in Mumbai and I look forward to an even better experience in Delhi."

Actor Neha Dhupia added “It's not every day that one gets an opportunity to see corporate czars and czarinas step into my world (read entertainment) as they unleash their hidden passions. And who knows – my next co-star or playback singer could be discovered right here, right now.”

FremantleMedia India MD Anupama Mandloi, “CNBC-TV18 returns as our broadcast partner, assisting us in showcasing the unique talent these corporate stalwarts have. We look forward to this year’s event receiving Delhi this time and continue to generously support Genesis Foundation.”


Prema Sagar, Founding Trustee, Genesis Foundation, said, “CEO’s Got Talent' is a platform for chief executives to come out of the closet, to do what they love, show their hidden talent – be it music, dance or any other performance, while raising funds to save lives of critically ill children.”

Sourabh Sarkar, Founder Karmyog Foundation, said “CEO’s Got Talent is a unique concept that aims at bringing together some of the most successful people in the country together. It not only gives them a platform to enthrall the audiences by unveiling their ‘other side’ but also lets them contribute toward a larger cause. We are glad to be associated with CEO’s Got Talent.”
