‘I am delighted to invite you to Synergy 2016, the 6th edition of XLRI’s Annual Consulting Conference. Over the years, the conference has consistently set the highest standards for powerful reasoned and insightful discourse on the role the consulting domain plays or can play in the nation’s growth story.
The theme for this year’s conference is Success Strategies in the age of Rapid Disruptions. In less than 2 decades, India has gone from being a third world nation to the third largest economy in terms of Purchasing Power Parity. With the recent Chinese slowdown, it is now the fastest growing major economy in the world.
This is despite the fact that the last half-decade had seen the economy mired in corruption scandals, high inflation, falling GDP growth, and rising deficits.
Institutional and systemic paralysis had slowed down the Indian growth story and for a while it seemed that the great Indian dream was over’, said Fr. E. Abraham, Director XLRI on the eve of the symposium.
