    Being a part of the Economic Times Young Leaders programme was an absolute honour. It wasn’t just about the recognition which came pouring in from seniors, colleagues, friends, peers, professors and family. More importantly, the programme helped me reach out, connect and build a network with senior leaders in my organisation and the other young leaders who were a part of the Programme.

  • Kisha Gupta

    Program Manager – Global Academic Relations, Infosys Limited

    ET Young Leaders is a journey of self-discovery. Being selected and awarded by such an eminent jury of CEOs is a once-in-a-lifetime experience which is hard to describe in words. As I progressed through the stages, I discovered that continuous learning and growth is a core element of the ETYL process. Being adjudged as a young leader at the national level certainly helps propel one’s career and establishes credibility as a future business leader.

    Senior Manager - Business development, Sony Pictures Networks India Pvt. Ltd.

    The Economic Times Young Leaders provided me great exposure - especially the opportunity to interact with equally bright, sharp and pick of the corporate talent. The Economic Times Young Leaders recognition was distinctly noticed by my company's CEO and he mentioned it when he decided to add me to a core group for a strategic project. Obviously, The Economic Times Young Leaders recognition helps your CV and it landed me a great opportunity from one of the industry's leaders where I'm currently working and handling a diverse set of strategic assignments.

Professionally, it helped me get noticed by leaders in the upper echelons of my organisation. It also opened up new career avenues. I recently joined a large PE backed portfolio company in a leadership role.I would urge all the young candidates to participate in this fantastic experience. I am sure, whether or not you make it to the list, you all will come out as winners.

    Product Marketing Manager, Tata Teleservices Maharashtra

    The Economic Times Young Leaders 2012 was a shot in the arm for me and my career. I got interview opportunities for profiles I aspired for. Apart from that, the programme itself gave that opportunity to interact and learn from some of the best brains across industries. The 30 minute personal interview with Mr VineetNayar was icing on the cake, which helped me clearly identify my goals in personal as well as professional life.


    Director Marketing, American Express India & Area Countries

    The Economic Times Young Leaders gave me great visibility across my professional network. The cross organizational exposure and CEO interactions were indeed enriching. It gives me great confidence to know that I am part of this select group of young leaders across the country. If you think you are a young leader then do take the challenge to test yourself - beyond your organization, against professionals from across the industry. No other platform will give you this exposure. Of course, winning the title will certainly give a strong impetus to your career aspirations as well.


    Client Partner, Tata Consultancy Services

    The realization of being amongst the top young leaders in the country has given a tremendous boost to my confidence. One stand out moment in the programme is the opportunity in the final round to interact with India's top CEOs. This learning is priceless as many of the insights that I have gained through these interactions, cannot be found in management books. Some of the CEOs also take a personal interest in one's career growth, which is a humbling experience for me.


    Manager Business Strategy, HCL Technologies Ltd

    The ETYL journey has been a game changing one, both in personal and professional front; at the personal level it has been an eye-opener to me, because it not only brought out the latent leadership qualities but also helped me in becoming a better individual. At professional level the ETYL recognition created a visibility which helped me in connecting with the leaders and winning their trust; which in turn resulted in new opportunities.


    Vice President, Corporate and Investment Banking, Citibank

    The Economic Times Young Leaders programmeallowed me to interact, learn and compete with the very best of India Inc. This is one of the greatest professional experiences I have ever had. One of the most laudable aspects of the programme is its format. It allowed me to take a step back after every round, reassess what I have done so far and define, with immense clarity, where I was headed. The experience and the process alone is incentive enough to attempt this esteemed competition.

It is fair to participants from all industries and education backgrounds.Success in the first edition of The Economic Times Young Leader Programme had a very positive impact on my career. It boosted not only my confidence but also the organisation's confidence and trust on me. They gave me higher responsibilities and I have never looked back since then.


    VP - Enterprise Solutions,Zopper

    The Economic Times Young Leaders has helped me stand out and be noticed. In fact I was approached by my previous company based on this and I was offered the role of Associate Director, handling the entire Delhi operations. Within 6 months, I was promoted to the role of a Director and I was handling pan-India operations handling a workforce of 1200 and was entrusted with the task of transitioning the organization to a solutions mind set. It has also helped me leverage my current role.
