Being A Courageous Leader

How do great leaders make tough decisions?  How do you decide when to expend your leadership capital, and when to hold back? Is being a courageous leader a high-integrity approach that however could hurt your career — or is courage a career accelerator?

How To Build A High-Performance Team

What sets apart a top leadership team, from teams at other levels? What is the right balance between choosing team members passed on experience and credentials, and leadership chemistry?  How should you handle the talented top executive, who does not work as a team member?

Master Class:

Making The Deal Work

It’s one thing to conceive of the right deal.  It’s something entirely different to make it work.  What are the qualities that are needed to carry a big deal from concept to closing? What is the proper role of your Board?  If you are the CEO, what people do you need around you? What should you look for in financial and other advisors?

Earning Trust In Society

Everyone sees the urgency of earning societal trust in healthcare – but why is so little being achieved?  Is there a new way forward?  What should top leaders of the future learn from past failures?  Why do so many top leaders lose the trust of their people, the trust of the Board?  How do you earn trust, and keep it? What can you do to repair trust, when it is damaged?






10:00 – 10:45 a.m.

Workshop & DIALOGUE:

Is Diversity The True “Innovation Edge”?

Do we want diversity in the work place because it is ethically right — or because it gives us an innovation edge?  What does ‘diversity’ mean? Is it about ethnicity and gender, or more?  What is the role of top leadership in shaping and leveraging diversity?

11:15 – 12:00 p.m.


Interview & Dialogue:

Nutrition And Health – The New Frontier

What will be the impact of the technology revolution creating new sources of nutrition? How will that converge with biotech and biopharma?  Will access to nutrition become as important, and controversial, as access to other dimensions of health?  What should top leaders in healthcare think and do?



Mehmood Khan, Chief Scientific Officer and Vice Chairman, Pepsico
