Bengaluru, July 18: IIMBue, the annual leadership conclave hosted by IIM-B Alumni Association, is set to be held on July 20 and 21. This would be the third edition of the annual event and the theme for this year is 'Sensing The Future'.
IIMBue, which has in recent times emerged as a platform for the exchange of ideas, would be held at Taj Bangalore.
The event promises to be a power-packed one, bringing together globally-renowned thinkers, achievers and policymakers from diverse backgrounds, all on one platform.
IIMBue 2018 aims to encourage invigorating conversations and exciting opportunities, with a dash of entertainment and nostalgia. One of the highlights of the two-day event is a conversation between the celebrated yogi, mystic and visionary Sadhguru and Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh on the DNA of success in the future.
From panel discussions on executing leadership and power differently in the 21st century to breakthrough technologies and innovations across science, space and sports, the unique alumni-led leadership conclave promises an impressive line-up of global thought leaders, entrepreneurs, business honchos and policymakers to address complex leadership challenges of the future.
Speaking about the event, Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, Chief Patron of the Leadership Conclave, said, "Over the last 45 years, IIMB has consistently strived to create impact through thought leadership. IIMBue is an earnest effort to bring the IIMB family - alumni and students - as well as global leaders on a common thought leadership platform to address future challenges and solutions. IIMBue 2018 offers a unique opportunity for the IIMB alumni across the world to foster old connections and make new ones for a better tomorrow."
IIMBue 2018 will also host theme-based networking sessions, where groups of 30-50 delegates will have the chance to interact informally with special invitees.
Amit Tyagi, co-convenor of the leadership conclave, said, "In addition to establishing IIMB as a thought leader among global B-schools, IIMBue is an effort of IIMB Alumni Association to promote greater engagement among the alumni.
So, since the last edition, IIMBue has offered structured networking sessions to the delegates. In these sessions led by a few exceptionally successful alumni, delegates get to discuss issues important to them - from fundraising for start-ups to managing careers in long-term, in smaller and more personal groups."
IIMBue 2018 promises to be an inspiring, fun-filled event with open cocktail dinners as well as a music concert by the talented trio Ambi Subramaniam, Bindu Subramaniam and Mahesh Raghavan.
Over 1000 alumni members and guests - CEOs, CXOs, senior management of corporates, VCs and social entrepreneurs from all over the world - are expected to attend IIMBue 2018.
The first two editions of IIMBue in 2015 and 2016 - with the themes 'Engage, Energize and Enhance' and 'Multiple Facets Of Leadership: Start, Scale And Disrupt' respectively - attracted over 2000 IIMB alumni and speakers across diverse fields including Shah Rukh Khan, Shashi Tharoor, Piyush Goyal, Amitabh Kant, Vijay Amritraj, Deepika Padukone, Azim Premji, and Mohandas Pai, to name a few.
