The vagaries of economic upswings and downturn have a wide-ranging impact globally and the current scenario is no exception to this rule. It is the awareness of and reaction to this situation that can make a decisive difference to an organisation's fortunes and business sustainability. Globally, senior executives and influential thought leaders in business are facing challenging questions. For companies operating in today's tough economic climate, innovation is crucial to developing a competitive edge and driving long-term revenue growth.
Frost & Sullivan realises the need of the hour and aims to aid CEOs and their growth team members in driving long-term growth by identifying Mega Trends, which are influencing the global market and, thereby, help them leverage growth opportunities. With this objective, Frost & Sullivan will be hosting its annual flagship event GIL 2014: Middle East, The Global Community of Growth, Innovation, and Leadership on 26 February 2014 at Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
"Faced with increasing complexity, companies are at the precipice of change. A region poised for social change combined with a need to grow globally is increasing pressures on companies based in the Middle East to innovate in new exciting ways. Through GIL 2014: Middle East, Frost & Sullivan will support these companies and their management to envisage a visionary strategic plan and, thereby help them achieve their top-line growth objectives," says Aroop Zutshi, Global President and Managing Partner, Frost & Sullivan. The Keynote Address by Aroop will reverberate with the theme of the event - Disrupt, Collapse, and Transform and mark Frost & Sullivan's continuation of ‘The Journey to Visionary Innovation'. This interesting keynote will look at new trends that are creating widespread disruption, collapsing industries, and transforming spaces to give context to the opportunities ahead for growth.
Following the keynote would be the New Mega Trends Analysis by Frost & Sullivan, which will identify the most pertinent global Mega Trends, potential scenarios of specific trends in 2020, and the implications of these Mega Trends in transforming industries, markets, and cultures. This year, the novel element will be an interactive workshop, where Industry Groups will come together to evaluate how the Mega Trends of today will drive and determine the big news stories of tomorrow. An Executive Bulletin, titled Techvision 2020 a recent research by Frost & Sullivan covering and highlighting the top 50 disruptive technologies and the ways to counter them will follow the Mega Trends Workshop.
Another astute addition to this year's event is a Panel Discussion on 360 Degree Industry Perspectives and Convergence Opportunities, where one will hear proven innovators describe how they successfully drove innovation and change in their respective industries.
In addition, Frost & Sullivan will introduce new aspects to nurture ideas into new and breakthrough innovations with Blue Sky Innovation methodology that complements traditional innovation practice. Through the interactive exchange of innovative strategies and proven best practices, shared through "solution-based" workshop, Frost & Sullivan will help CEOs and their management teams evaluate the methodology and, thereby provide them necessary tools to grow their companies and careers. A deep dive into industry transformations, game changers, and Mega Trends, which are driving the "Next Big Thing", will prove to be insightful for the CEOs and their growth teams.
Through in-depth and thought-provoking workshops, Frost & Sullivan will provide participants an insight into understanding strategy formulation, implementation, and development through a structured approach for strategic partnering.
Frost & Sullivan's GIL Community is the only global network of its kind bringing together all of its resources and expertise to provide ‘C' level executives and their respective management teams crucial ideas, strategic tools, innovative and structured processes, and best practices to meet their growth objectives.
