FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Deepak Chopra, Rajat Gupta on Leadership &
Next Generation of PIO Potential at the 2nd Annual IIT Bay Area Leadership Conference
Santa Clara, CA - June 16, 2017 – Deepak Chopra and Rajat Gupta will address the second annual IIT Bay Area Leadership Conference on June 17. The pioneers in the business community will discuss their paths to success, overcoming controversy and the leadership skills they needed to build careers in the United States.
Internationally lauded author, entrepreneur and innovator in integrative medicine, Deepak Chopra has built a business empire that expands across the globe. His more than 80 books are considered required reading in the self-help genre and his passion introduced millions in the United States to alternative medicine.
Rajat Gupta, IIT Delhi alumnus, was the first foreign-born CEO to lead global powerhouse consultancy McKinsey & Co. Elected in 1994 and re-elected twice, Gupta brought a global perspective to a company who saw 60% of its revenues at the time coming from global markets. Gupta founded the Indian School of Business (ISB) and America India Foundation (AIF), and served as an advisor to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Additionally, Mr. Gupta sits on the board of PanIIT USA and is the current Chairman of the WHEELS Global Foundation, which will host the WHEELS For Humanity Awards Gala recognizing the strides made in clean water accessibility, health, education, energy, livelihood and sustainability on Nov. 3, 2017.
Born and educated in India, both men moved to the United States to expand their careers. Although there are similarities, both have vastly differing perspectives on leadership. Dr. Chopra believes that success comes not from hard work, but through self-awareness and an understanding of the laws of nature. Mr. Gupta argues that success comes from constantly finding ways to make a difference to your employer. His approach is focused and intentional. This dichotomy will make for a probing and fascinating discussion.
