According to Faheem Agboatwala, a member of the Share-to-Benefit forum at BMPA and director of Hi-Tech Printing Services, there are many questions raised when it comes to leadership and nurturing leadership – What makes a leader? Is good leadership a solitary pursuit at the top? Can a leader separate himself from his team members, and lose sight of their needs, dreams and ambitions?
Agboatwala added, “In industry circles, Sudhir Sitapati has impressed many with his thought process, marketing acumen and leadership skills. I am sure he will explain what it takes to become the gold standards of leadership creation.”
