The tenth edition of the annual BML Munjal Awards for ‘Business Excellence through Learning & Development’, that will recognise organizations who have demonstrated business excellence through innovations in learning & development, will also be hosted as part of the summit.
Since 2006, luminaries and distinguished leaders from every field of human endeavour have been part of this iconic event. The previous edition of the summit (India: Economics or Politics) looked at a nation mired in low growth, fragmented politics and policy stasis. This year’s edition will evaluate India’s new eco-political atmosphere and emerging social arithmetic, and how it can help the country evolve over the next 10 years.
