NEW DELHI: A two-day industry summit beginning Tuesday will focus on cultivating leaders in the corporate as well as non-corporate world in India.

The Second Leadership Summit 2003 will also lay emphasis on creating centres of excellence "where it will be possible to foster and nurture leadership qualities", said the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

N.R. Narayana Murthy, chairman and chief mentor of Infosys Technologies, India's largest listed software exporter, will deliver the keynote address at the summit Tuesday.

"The summit will not restrict its template to the business world. It will carefully scan the non-corporate terra firma to pick up lessons from the spiritual world, community leaders and other typical leaders," it said.

Other speakers include Shiela Dikshit, chief minister of Delhi, Naina Lal Kidwai, vice-chairman and managing director of HSBC Securities and Capital Market (India) Ltd. and Arun Maira, chairman of Boston Consulting Group.

Swami Sukhabodhananda, a spiritual guru and chairman of Prasanna Trust, Jayaprakash Narayan, campaign coordinator of Lok Satta and Indu Shahani, principal of H.R. College of Commerce and Economic will also address the leadership summit.

"At the heart of the success of winning organisations must be a process of developing winners - individuals, teams, and the organisation itself," said the CII statement.

"We will explore how corporate leaders are combining the urge to win, in themselves and their people, with an orientation to work in teams and a concern for broader contributions to society," it added.
