“In the current fast-changing economic environment, young aspirants must build a new set of leadership competencies to be successful. Yet, they rarely get the opportunity to lead a team and understand the strategic aspects of running a country-wide business. The ‘CEO for One Month’ program is, therefore, a golden opportunity for aspirants to learn the ropes from senior business leaders who are at the top of their game. We welcome ambitious and hardworking participants to take this chance to learn and make their mark,” said Gannamani about the initiative.
As part of a drive to help young people, the initiative offers participants the chance to develop and showcase their leadership skills and acquire the expertise and experience required to succeed in their careers. With around 200,000 applicants each year across 40 countries, this program has already helped more than 300 candidates realize their potential and offered them a platform on which to build their future.
