About MDI


"SAMVAAD”, the 3rd edition of the Annual Leadership Conclave, is organized at Management Development Institute, Gurgaon and hosted by the students of National Management Program. The Conclave provides a platform that facilitates interaction between the industry stalwarts and MDI students and provides insights on leadership, creativity, innovation and strategy. The panel discussion includes business leaders, academicians, entrepreneurs and leading industry stalwarts.

The theme for this year’s conclave is “EMERGING INDIA - THE ROAD AHEAD" .The International Monetary Fund predicts that after a lackluster outturn in 2016, the economic activity is projected to pick up pace in 2017 and 2018, especially in emerging markets and developing economies. Last year Samvaad focused on the theme ‘Success through Synergy’ with prominent industry stalwarts like Ashwani Lohani of Air India, Gagan Arora of FoodPanda, Anurag Batra of Chairman Business World, Sanjay Mehta, CEO Teleperformance and others interacting with the future Leaders of the Nation. While Samvaad’15 focused on the theme ‘Emerging Leaders of Innovative India’ where stalwarts like D.D. Mishra from ONGC, Sameer Grover of CrownIt, Vikas Banga from Snapdeal and various other eminent speakers enlightened the students with industry insights.

Continuing the legacy, this year the conclave will again see industry expert from companies like PwC, DMRC, McKinsey, Alstom and others coming together and providing insights on the fundamental changes sweeping across India as an emerging market.


The panel discussions will include the topics -

Technology landscape is witnessing a paradigm shift due to newer advancements. Organizations are becoming more data driven instead of being process oriented with the advancement in analytics and hence playing a major role in all the decision-making processes across different verticals of an organization. The boundaries between industries is slowly fading away, interdependence is becoming more prominent and the integration of technologies with various business functions plays an important role in organisation strategy and future growth.

The People’s President, Late Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam once rightly said, “Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with foreign things? Is it a legacy of our colonial years? We want foreign television sets. We want foreign shirts. We want foreign technology. Why this obsession with everything imported?”
With the country entering into the 26 th year of economic liberalisation, we witness an era of new age entrepreneurs and innovators working towards making India an Industrial hub on world map. Government policies like Start-up India are being built upon to promote this self- reliant ecosystem and propel the growth by opening new gates of opportunities.

The ever-changing market conditions offer a range of complexities for managing the talent with a question on how can we manage effectively in this constantly changing, dynamic situation? Fortunately, the words from Charles Darwin resonate quite aptly that “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, or the most intelligent, but rather the one most adaptable to change.” We live in a disruptive world and the Leadership has to adapt and respond quickly to these changing demands of the market. Analytics and automation have found prominence in making these informed decisions and cater to the demand of managing the human capital.

Economic Liberalization in India celebrates it’s silver jubilee in the year 2016. The conditions that led to this historic initiative in the year 1991 are well documented and because of this paradigm shift in the developmental thinking and movements towards market forces, dissenting voices against the economic liberalisation were quite prevalent during that time. Now after almost a quarter of a century later various institutional changes have taken place. Some have proved to be a success, while some failed. There have been revolutions in the domains of finance and banking, infrastructure, trade, education, social sector, among others to set the agenda for economic reforms 2.0
