Session Details

Session 1

Topic: Let the Sunshine In to Deliver Creativity and Growth
Speaker: Sanjay Purohit, Vice President and Head - Corporate Planning and Business Assurance, Infosys Technologies
Date: June 7, 2011
Time: 13:00 EST

Session Description

Truly innovative companies look far beyond their own products and efficiency for creativity and growth; they continually re-wire their own organizations.

Sanjay Purohit explains how organizations that open up their innovation culture and processes innovate at a much faster rate. For example, youth-led adoption and innovation of web services and mobile technologies are driving both the economic miracle in India and the development of new products, services and business models in emerging economies around the world.

As an authority on India's business and financial communities, Sanjay shows how India's approach to youthful innovation is poised to affect the world in the next decade and what knock-on effects this will have for Australian and global business.
