With new business ideas, emerging technological support, evolving art forms and modern creative expressiois the game changers in the world of business, art and technology have introduced us to unimaginable future prospects. Whether it’s Mr. Abhinay Choudhari, co-founder of Big Basket, who changed the mode of grocery shopping for Indians, Mr. Rohit Prasad, the Indian brain behind Amazon’s Alexa, which transformed the way we manage our home, Mr. Kapil Sharma, one of the most noted personalities who popularized stand-up comedy in the country or Mr. Chandrashekar K, one of the pioneers of human music or beat boxing in India – Change or transformation now exists in every frame of our lives due to these game changers. İLEAD in its 10 years of journey has witnessed and grown with these evolving changes. From being a management and media college, we have acknowledged ‘science as the new art our mind’ and with the growing need have started new age degree courses on data analytics, artificial intelligence, gaming and others. We believe in the words of Barack Obama, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” Keeping this in mind, İLEAD brings to you ‘Managedia 2020: Chrysalis – Celebrating Change, Celebrating Game Changers’, to mark the upcoming challenges and recognize the game changers of today’s world. Like a chrysalis that transforms into a butterfly due to evolutionary changes, this year’s Managedia will test your ability to adapt, accept, contribute. survive and thrive in this transformational phase by putting yourself in the cut throat competition zone and sailing against all odds to emerge as a game changer yourself.
