“Find what you love to do, and then be bold and confident in yourself and your ability to achieve your goals, shared Julie Bowerman, Vice President, Global Shopper Marketing, Ecommerce and Digital, The Coca-Cola Company.
“Have a dream, the passion to live the dream, a strategy to feed that passion, and a plan to realize it,” shared Richa Arora, Chief Operating Officer, Consumer Products Business, Tata Chemicals.
“Be flexible with your goals as they are not set in stone. Always plan for failure and how you may have to deal with that. Be realistic about setting goals and not be afraid to share them with others as you would need support in executing them,” shared Fumbi Chima, Chief Information Officer, Burberry Plc.
Reflecting on her own success, Lynne Anne Davis, President, Asia Pacific, FleishmanHillard highlighted the value of risk-taking. “The real game changers in life always come with risk. Push yourself outside comfort zones to find exciting new avenues for growth and deeper satisfaction.”
Speaking about the importance of mentors, Peter Sharp, President, Walmart Asia Realty shared “Actively search for the right mentors. Trust your organization to help support you on this but proactively work on getting the right mentors yourself as well. Great mentors can make a great difference and ideally it works two-way, so you help the Mentor too.”
Farah Nathani-Menzies, Vice President, Strategic Projects and Diversity, Godrej advised, “Make the choices that work for YOU through the different stages of your life – and then accept that with those choices come tradeoffs. Every choice will have a cost and an associated benefit – be realistic.”
“Diversity & Inclusion is in our DNA at P&G. It is the right thing to do and it is right for the business. It is critical to have the right mindset and set the tone from the top. Hence, my advice is to make Diversity & Inclusion measurable and hold your leaders accountable.” shared Al Rajwani, MD and CEO, P&G India.
“The diversity agenda starts with parenting. Parents need to break down stereotypes and role model the right behaviors for their children” shared Sangeeta Pendurkar, Managing Director, Kellogg India.
“If we are to continue to move the women’s agenda forward then it is up to each and every one of us to make that change and lead by example. Take your key learnings from the conference and make a pact with yourself to put them into action. Your action will make a difference,” added Miles Wilson, Global Commercial Leadership Director, The Coca-Cola Company.
