What Does 2018 INSIGHT Hold for You?
This year, the seventh edition of INSIGHT, is scheduled from November 22-25 at the Isha Yoga Center, Coimbatore.
With some of India’s top entrepreneurs, INSIGHT 2018 promises to be an extensive and experiential workshop. The entrepreneurs participating as key resource leaders in INSIGHT 2018 are:
Kishore Biyani – Founder & Group CEO, Future Group
Kishore Biyani is the Founder and Group Chief Executive Officer of Future Group, one of India’s leading consumer goods organizations focused on the food, fashion, and homeware segments. The organization believes modern retail plays a vital role in the growth of the economy by creating demand for value-added goods and thus supporting the growth of domestic manufacturing, jobs, and income generation. The group’s emblem, the Sone Ki Chidiya, symbolises its vision of reviving India’s lost status as the “land of the golden bird”.
In 2001, Kishore led the creation of Big Bazaar, a 280-store large format retail network that is counted among the most trusted brands in the country. The group’s businesses also include multiple retail chains like HyperCity, Easyday, Nilgiris, Heritage Fresh, Foodworld, Central, Brand Factory, FBB, and Home Town. These chains are present in over 355 cities and towns in almost every state of the country. The group also operates a pan-India logistics network, a fast growing portfolio of brands in fashion, footwear, food and personal care, manufacturing, agri-sourcing and processing facilities located across India. Every year, almost 500 million customer visits are recorded at the group’s stores.
Bhavish Aggarwal – Co-Founder, OLA cabs
Bhavish Aggarwal is the Co-Founder & CEO of Ola, one of the world’s largest ride-sharing platforms and India’s most popular mobile app for travel and commuting. With the mission of enabling mobility for a billion people, he started Ola (formerly Ola Cabs) in 2010 with Ankit Bhati, a fellow alumnus from the Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai, the country’s premier institution for technology and science.
As a rapidly growing organization that nurtures the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship, Ola took the first big step in spreading its wings outside of India with the launch in Australia in early 2018, followed by its entry in UK. This move is in line with Ola’s vision of solving globally relevant problems with hyperlocal solutions.
Amitabh Kant – CEO, NITI Aayog
Amitabh Kant is presently CEO of the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI). He is a member of the Indian Administrative Service, IAS (Kerala Cadre: 1980 batch). He is the author of Branding India - An Incredible Story. Kant has been a key driver of the “Make in India”, “Start-up India”, “Incredible India” and “God’s Own Country” initiatives that positioned India and Kerala State as leading manufacturing and tourism destinations. These campaigns have won several international awards and embraced a host of activities – infrastructure development, product enhancement, private-public partnership, and positioning & branding based on extensive market research. Amitabh Kant was also the National Project Director of the Rural Tourism Project of UNDP (United Nations Development Programme), which made a paradigm shift in spreading tourism to Indian villages which had core-competency in handicrafts, handloom, and culture.
In his capacity as Secretary (Industries) Govt. of India, he drove the “Ease of Doing Business” initiative and ranking of States on outcome parameters. He is the Chairman of the Committee to implement Digital Payment in India.
What the Attendees Have to Say About INSIGHT
“It would have taken me ten years to get all the lessons and the insights that I got in those 3 or 4 days.” Sucheth Davuluri - CEO, Neuland Laboratories Ltd
"I had never heard of Isha before but attending the program has been one of my lifetime’s experience. It was great to be with some of the best-known business leaders in India and understand their first-hand experience & the challenges that they faced. There was a free flow of interaction not only during the sessions but also after the sessions." Prashant Shukla - National Head, Direct Procurement at Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages Pvt Ltd
“This is no average leadership program. This is a very unique leadership program. It’s not only about business, it’s about how do I be different as a leader. How can I look at things differently not only from a pure analytical, rational, financial angle but also from other things – right from spirituality, from emotion, from introspection. And I think the process of an entrepreneur fixing themselves constantly through the journey as a human being, as a person, as an entrepreneur, as a leader is the best part of the journey of entrepreneurship.” Ameera Shah - Promoter and Managing Director, Metropolis Healthcare
“I have attended innumerable national and global business leadership conferences but what Insight has done for me in just 3 days is simply phenomenal. It has changed the way I work and live.” Anisha Motwani - Director & CMO, Max Life Insurance
“The format is so well-designed to actually capture the life journeys of eminent people. They are sharing decades of wisdom. Culling out the essence of that has been absolutely fantastic. This ashram and the ambience have set the tone beautifully. It has been a very well thought out program – individually each ingredient fits in very well. " Bhavna Doegar - Senior VP, Global Finance Controller at Genpact LLC
“I know of no other program in my fifty years of global experience where you have such a large gathering of CEOs available as Resource Advisors for four days.” Dr. Ram Charan - Business Advisor, Author and Top Ceo Coach
“There is a business context, there is an individual personal context, and there is a context of inner dimension. It is entirely appropriate that someone like Sadhguru takes the lead in this sphere.” K. V. Kamath - President, The New Development Bank Brics
“I think it’s a unique concept. All of us know that there are various things involved in making something successful.Everybody works hard but few people who actually make it happen. So, what is that difference? Analyzing that and debating that with the people who are really practicing it was a unique opportunity. The quality of participants were very good, very intelligent questions and that’s something which I really enjoyed." Prasoon Joshi - National Award-Winning Lyricist, Screenwriter, and CEO of McCann World Group
“The perspective and practices that Sadhguru has given, gives you the strength and stability to go through the day without getting overly disturbed by stress. I can clearly see that I’ve become gentler and less judgmental. My equanimity and sense of calmness in the face of all that life throws at me has certainly improved a lot.” Ravi Venkatesan - Former Chairman, Microsoft India
