Accelerate India 2021

This past month I was thrilled to gather with more than 100 incredible, forward-thinking leaders and executives around the globe for a day of learning and conversation as host of our 2021 first-ever Accelerate India event.

Leaders from Haptik, VMware, Reliance Industries and EXL shared exciting new ways they are leading and organizing their teams to execute the bold strategies of their orgs and accelerate results in their fast-changing global markets that span India and beyond.

Digital Pace and Customer Expectations Rising Across Industries

With a May 2021 survey by McKinsey showing that only 11% of CEOs believe their current business model is viable for the future, we know that generational transformation, and acceleration of technology is happening in every industry. What a phenomenal opportunity to access wisdom and insights from those who are leading that transformational charge!
