During a recently held Press Meet, Dr. Mohapatra listed out the needs of the times in a new normal era. Dr. Gautam and Dr. Ray also added their views on the conference and what they aimed to achieve from the conference.
During the pandemic, a few companies were agile enough to quickly respond to digital work. Most of the companies faced immense challenges in being able to cope with the new model of work environment, with some of the organizations even being forced to shut down completely. Keeping this challenging scenario in view, the theme and subtopics will be addressed while trying to decode and understand what the organizations can do to support agile work culture.
Aligned to the theme, the sessions of the Conference shall be grouped under four tracks namely Skills, Technology, Markets, and Sustainability. A wide galaxy of Indian and International speakers is expected to bring to life diverse perspectives and ideas across sessions, artfully stitched together. The eminent panel of speakers will include, David Olson Ulrich, Professor, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, Dr. Alka Mittal, Chairman & Managing Director, ONGC, Raghupati Singhania, Chairman Managing Director, JK Tyre & Industries Ltd., and many others.
