The Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce (BCIC) organized a two-day virtual Business Leadership Conclave on the theme ‘Leadership Lessons for India 2025 and Beyond’ on April 8th – 9th, 2022. The conclave was opened by Mr. K R Sekar, President – BCIC and Partner, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India LLP. The two-day conclave featured thought-provoking insights on a variety of themes concerning today’s ever-changing corporate climate, as well as a panel discussion on ‘Leadership’ chaired by notable speakers.

  • Digital adoption & transformation
  • Supply chain management – how business reworked strategy to keep business afloat
  • Support from Government to keep the business going through policy support
  • How to preserve and protect existing resources

Supporting the event, Mr K R Sekar, President, BCIC, expressed, “Knowing the business industry closely, the industry dynamic is rapidly changing, hence change is inevitable and we have to be prepared to combat these challenges.
