Business is an ever-evolving, multi-faceted arena. Everyone has a take on how businesses should be run, and what it takes to ‘make it’ in a competitive industry. It is one of the oldest topics ever written about, and while a lot of ground is already covered, there is still a lot more that can be said. This is why we have authors, speakers, and industry experts from all walks of life who have something to contribute to business and its various aspects. Recognising this fact, BW Businessworld Pvt Ltd is organising the Gurugram chapter of the ‘Indian Business Literature Festival’ (IBLF )on the 11th of January 2023, at the Leela, Gurugram. It is often obsserved that with growing seniority in a company, the time to read is becomes progressively scarce. The idea of IBLF is to re-instil the habit of reading in CXOs. Once the senior leadership develops the habit of constant reading and learning, it becomes easier for them to inspire young professionals in their company to follow suit. While we acknowledge reading is a habit one should develop, an even harder task is to write effectively. IBLF is a celebration of all those who are able to accomplish the difficult task of putting forth their thoughts in a lucid and effective manner. The star-studded event will witness the who’s who of top leadership across industries. IBLF recognises and appreciates the life and career experience of industry veterans, who should be celebrated as heroes in their own right. The event has a curated set of speakers who will be present to discuss their work. Some of them include:
