With great pleasure I would like to share an update of Porter Prize 2014 event that was held on September 26, 2014 at Radisson Blu Plaza, Mahipalpur, Delhi. It was an exciting gathering of eminent people from intelligentsia, civil society, business and media etc. The most pertinent thing about the gathering was sharing of ideas and the platform that reflects cutting edge perspectives, powerful reflection and implementable ideas.
The event initiated at 04:30 PM with thought provoking panels on Economics, Social Progress & Creating Shared Value and Strategy & Competitive Advantage. We also had keynotes from Professor Michael E. Porter, Sanjiv Mehta, Sashi Ruia and Etienne Benet. The day culminated with a celebration of strategic acumen of Indian coporates through the Porter Prize ceremony wherein Deborah Wince Smith (President and CEO, US Council on Competitiveness) presented the citation to the enterprises recognised.
It is time to celebrate the enterprises and strive to emulate the best practices that they reflect so as to take India forward and make it a competitive nation.
I would like to personally thank all the enterprises that participated in the initiative, partners and the other stakeholders involved.
We look forward to continuing the legacy of the awards in the coming years and make it a success in future. Process for the next awards scheduled to take place in September 2015 will start from April 2015 with nominations.
Look forward to your continuing support.
Institute for Competitiveness, India
