A year ago, generative AI for sustainable business growth seemed distant. Now, it's a pressing priority, with businesses feeling the heat to adopt swiftly. Yet, rushed attempts often stumble on roadblocks to scaling effectively.

I'm delighted to extend this invitation to you for a breakfast meeting with Sandip Patel, Managing Director of IBM India & South Asia an his leadership. We'll explore the insights gained from over 1,000 Gen AI engagements by IBM, discussing your vision for Generative AI and navigating the challenges that have captured the boardroom's attention.

Join peer MDs and CEOs in this vital conversation where we will deliberate on:

  • How are industries and companies seizing AI to transform in the short and longer term?
  • Key considerations on balancing AI led value creation with adequate risk management?
  • How should we re-organize and re-define business units, functions, and capabilities for AI adoption?

Let’s prepare to scale and accelerate our AI journey – and do so responsibly!
