Get Your Seat in the Ivory League


  • The future of any corporation is as good as the value system of the leaders and followers in the organization.


    Co-founder - Infosys

  • I believe that the India Leadership Council fills in a clear void in corporate India by providing a platform to build true ‘leaders’ in the business world. Transformation is accomplished not just by processes, technology and products but by visionary leaders. And mentorship has a huge role to play in developing the leaders of tomorrow. In the digital era, there is a strong need for a platform that allows organizations to collaborate and exchange ideas with each other on developing and nurturing leadership.


    Chairman and Managing Director - Mahindra Group

  • At this point of time, when India is one of the most sought after destinations for business, with every country seeking enhanced relations with us, it is imperative for us to identify the existing lacunas and chart out a roadmap to overcome the same. This is what will bring about the “Change” in the industry, and promising platforms like the India Leadership Council will contribute to make this possible
