AIMA - Imperial College Conference

2nd Imperial College Business School-AIMA Conference

All India Management Association (AIMA) in its endeavour to provide a platform for thought-provoking deliberations, organised the 2nd Imperial College Business School-AIMA Conference on 30th May 2018 in London. Leaders from all walks of life stressed on the need to adapt and discussed the shifting dynamics of global competition and growth.

Rt Hon Baroness Sandip Verma, Member, House of Lords, UK, Global Chairperson, Institute of Directors, India, Chairperson, European External Affairs Committee and Former Minister of Energy & Climate Change delivered the keynote address. “The end user is ultimately not to be ignored. It’s the person who will keep an organisation afloat or break your organisation. Recent political landscapes also demonstrate that unless everyone believes they are sharing the success of economic growth, the dissatisfaction will filter through the cracks” she said.

Stressing the importance of collaboration, HE Mr YK Sinha, High Commissioner of India to UK, said, “Collaboration between the UK and India is particularly significant. What we forget sometimes is what’s happening across the board – whether it’s combatting malaria, developing solar batteries or creating a framework on cyber cooperation. This sort of collaboration will help our people prepare for the future.”

The inaugural session was concluded by Mr TV Mohandas Pai, President, AIMA and Chairman, Manipal Global Education Services. Francisco Veloso, Dean, Imperial College Business School delivered the welcome address, followed by a special address by Gopichand P Hinduja, Co-Chairman, Hinduja Group of Companies and Chairman, Hinduja Automotive Limited, UK.
