IIMBue 2018 : 20-21 July 2018

Many of you know that we launched IIMBue, The IIMB Leadership conclave ,in 2015 with the theme ‘Engage, Energize and Enhance’; followed by ‘Start, Scale and Disrupt’ as the theme for 2016.

Both editions of IIMBue attracted highly acclaimed thought leaders and influential speakers across diverse walks of life (more details on www.iimbue.com) with more than 2000 alums attending. The platform provided great possibilities for networking, soaking in nostalgia with old friends and opportunities to make new ones.

The scale, grandeur and impact that IIMBue has achieved in a short duration of time has not only made our own alumni and faculty sit up and take notice of the dynamism of our alumni association, but has also earned us recognition from other IIM/IIT and other alumni associations. This could not have been possible without the tireless work of the convening teams under the able guidance of alums Harish Mittal and Navin Kumar in 2015 and 2016 respectively. We are catalysed by this early success and strongly believe that IIMBue, in the near future will become ”THE Leadership Conclave of Southern India”.
Now, it’s time to unveil IIMBue 2018 and the theme for this year is ‘Sensing the Future’. The aim of this year’s conclave is to develop a shared understanding of the tectonic shifts we are experiencing geo-politically, economically, technologically and as a society – and to address complex leadership challenges for the future. In the fast changing VUCA world that we operate in today, having a sense of the future is not just an advantage to make your business thrive but a necessity to ensure that you remain in business. The venue for IIMBue is Taj Airport Bangalore on July 20 th and 21 st, 2018. The change of timing from Dec to July was made after taking into consideration feedback from our alumni community.

Our convenor for IIMBue 2018 is alum Guruprasad Makam; and he is supported by a wonderful team of enthusiastic alums. We have already lined up some extremely interesting and well known speakers and expect stimulating and thought provoking discussions over the 2 days.

As always, we count on your enthusiastic participation to make our leadership conclave a resounding success. So, I urge you to take advantage of our highly attractive early bird registration discount of Rs. 2000 (plus an additional loyalty discount of Rs. 1000 if you had attended either IIMBue 2016 or 2015). The early bird discount is available only for a limited number of registrations and will be withdrawn once we reach that number. You can register at www.iimbue.com

Looking forward to being IIMBued (“inspired”) together in Bangalore, in July 2018 !
