Prof. Behrens was born in Uruguay and trained in Brazil to be an economist sensitive to the social and political environment. He initially focused on inequality and how people sought to turn into the best of themselves. That’s why he worked in shanty towns, samba schools, and the World Bank on many continents. After a stint at the London Business School, he was stung by the pretention of Management’s same tenets to work equally well in all societies. That is how he became critical of management as it is thoughtlessly practiced across the world. Because people are different, to be happy and engaged they should be managed as they expect to. This led him to become a keynote speaker in the field of Leadership, Culture, and Management, where he published books and articles at Stanford, Harvard, the Financial Times, The Economist, People Matters, El Debate, Clarin, and many others. Of course, it helped that he holds a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge and many teaching awards, including from the Harvard environment.
He also had great fun writing a book for young adults, explaining how a cow learned to fly with the sparrows to reach greener pastures far away, it is the story of his life. Have you ever wondered what if Kodak and Blockbuster had paid attention to their sparrows?

By addressing these challenges, leaders can become more effective and help their organizations thrive in today’s fast-paced business landscape....
In the last few years, India has seen a significant augmentation in the digitalization of the operationality of businesses thereby, leading to a number of challenges for organizations of all sizes. The integral challenges associated with the digitalization of organizations relate to security (to protect themselves against cyber threats), recruiting skilled digital talent, providing seamless & personalized customer experience, data management to drive decision-making & innovation, and providing agility and flexible approaches to business operations and decision-making. Consequently, the plethora of challenges related to leadership and digitalization has opened the black-box of issues concerning reimagining the future of business so that every innovative action is focused on sustainable development goals and sustainability at large. While management education in particular and academics in general have made substantial contributions to the spectacular progress thus far, reimagining is necessary to address the aforementioned difficulties in a post-pandemic world. Put differently, to address the above-mentioned challenges, there must be an influential role of efficient leadership, and a strong organizational structure acquainted with the latest technological interventions for contributing towards sustainability.
The 3rd Pritam Singh Memorial Conference will bring together important stakeholders from academia, business, regulators, policymakers, and multilateral agencies to discuss “Reimagining the Future of Business:The Challenges of Leadership, Digitalization, and Sustainability.” The current corporate environment is turbulent and dynamic, necessitating innovation to keep up with the times.
