Do you know what is the essential leadership “DNA” of successful women in business? What are the common strategies that they adopt that make them hugely successful running their enterprises? Don’t miss out this special presentation where we unravel the qualitative attributes and strategies of successful women in business and understand how their financial performance correlate to these attributes – using AI.

“Future of Education”

The education sector from emerging countries calls for a far-reaching shift in the focus of schooling from accumulating course credits to building real-world capabilities. The emerging economy needs to mobilize its limited resources to advance to a contemporary set of goals, from macro perspective (climate change) to SME reskill and upskill, and best practices that will prepare all college students – for twenty first century realities. How do we prepare students to zero in on the difficult goal of meeting the needs of tomorrow? What kind of skill set, system and thinking, and technology and AI tools should be taught to prepare students for the future? Are current educators equipped to prepare the students with these needs? In this session, we discuss the strategic needs and challenges facing educators and learners today and how to prepare them collectively for the future.
