Digital transformation and disruption are global buzzwords, spreading rapidly across industries. Nepal, being a developing country, needs to comprehend and keep up with the “pace of change” in the midst of its political, environmental, and social issues. With this line of thought, Frost & Sullivan is organizing the first edition of its flagship event, Growth, Innovation and Leadership Summit – ‘GIL 2016: Nepal’ on November 9th, 2016 at the Crowne Plaza Kathmandu – Soaltee.
Mr. Aroop Zutshi, Global President & Managing Partner, Frost & Sullivan will inaugurate the GIL 2016: Nepal journey along with Mr. Prabhakar SJB Rana, Chairman Emeritus of Soaltee Hotel Ltd. At the Summit, Mr. Zutshi will share his perspective on surviving the future business environment, both as an individual and as a company, since innovation has now become critical for success. He will further discuss visionary innovation, corporate growth, digital disruption, and how to cope with uncertainties arising out of the disruption. “Nepal is striving to graduate beyond the Least Developed Country (LDC) status by 2021. FDI promotions across key growth industries will enable a conducive business environment compared to regional peers. Strategic location between emerging giants – China and India – also serves as a competitive differentiation. As Nepal emerges, it will lay the foundation to become “Digital” that will transform and lead to new vistas across industries and, once implemented, it will open huge opportunities for the citizens, while uplifting the country’s growth,” he said.
Manoj Menon, Senior Partner & Asia Pacific Managing Director, Frost & Sullivan will lead a think tank on business model innovation and growth opportunities in Nepal. He will share the best practices to adopt and accomplish growth in today’s highly competitive market.
