Business Seminar - An important part of NABC 2023 is the Business Seminar, which is designed to be a forum for discussion emerging issues, trends facing the business world including innovation, technology, changing faces of work, trend in geo-political and economic issues, leadership in the changing marketplace, etc. An estimated 100+ people are expected to attend the seminar.
Speakers and Discussion Leaders: several top business leaders from the US and India have been identified and contacted for potential participation in the seminar. Some of the guest participants from prior years include Indra Nooyi (former CEO of PepsiCo), Rajat Gupta (Former Global Managing Partner of McKinsey), Dr. Pallab Chatterjee (Chairman of 3 Lines Venture Capital and former CEO of I2 Technologies and former CTO of Texas Instruments), Sanat Chattopadhyay (EVP and President of Merck & Co.), Nandita Bakhshi (CEO of Bank of the West), Prith Banerjee (CTO of ANSYS, Inc.), etc.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) - The role of speakers and corporate sponsors in the success of non-profit organizations and social NGOs like the organizer of NABC cannot be overemphasized. Support of such initiatives in the business world has come a long way to become an integral part of the CSR strategy of corporations. In fact, companies like Accenture, Microsoft, Google, and Intel are amongst the leaders in the bandwagon, and have been shaping our society through innovation, service, and a vision of integration of communities in the global arena. As a matter of fact, these companies have consistently ranked in the top echelons of best global corporate citizens as judged by CR magazine.
Value Proposition – As corporate philanthropy keeps evolving with the changing times, there is a growing need for such giving to be more consistent with and to an extent accretive to the overall value chain. Philanthropy for the society is morphing into clearlyvisible and contributory factorsimpacting the overall well-being of businesses and their bottom lines. And NABC could provide a good channel for such visibility. The statistics are compelling: an outreach of approximately 5,000 attendees (majority age ranging from 25 to 45), earning a median income of $175,000+, a concentration of technology professionals, etc. It’s also important to note that many attendees hold CxO or other positions of power and influence in the business world, thereby making the event a “hard to pass” from a business outreach perspective.
