Mr. Siddiqui added that high performers always set their career goals, ascertain their market worth, skills and competencies, and measure prospective employers based on organizational culture, work - quality life, future growth prospects, role adaptability and social service before taking the intentional decisions. He said that it was the responsibility of employers to provide opportunities to employees to gain varied experience within the organization and grow into successful leaders.
Mr. S Sandilya, Chairman, Eicher Ltd. believed that learning may come even from the junior person, in his talk over"Innovative Work Place for Maximising Performance".

Mr. Pramod Bhasin, Vice Chairman, Genpact India, shared his worthy insights and optimistic ideas during the session on"Make in India - Incubating Leaders for Tomorrow". He suggested avoiding use of prefix like "Sir" by the subordinates or any employee at any level of management to their seniors in the organization, because one's recognition with name indicates honor and respect in itself. This practice helps create an environment of happiness and confidence in others at workplace. Mr. Bhasin spread a strong positive message for the future business leaders in his talk.
The event came to an end with high network tea.
