Dubai, United Arab Emirates:Innovation has now become an essential ingredient for companies to survive and thrive in the future business environment and be prepared for global challenges. Therefore, identifying structured processes to achieve growth through real-world case examples, best practices, and key strategies is more pertinent today than ever. With this as the background, Frost & Sullivan will delve on ‘Discovering the Next BIG Thing: Leveraging Mega Trend Opportunities to Grow and Innovate Today, Tomorrow and Beyond’, at its Flagship event, GIL 2013: Middle East, The Global Community of Growth, Innovation and Leadership on 26th February, 2013 at Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai, UAE.

GIL 2013: Middle East will provide a powerful forum for senior executives who are seeking actionable strategies, solutions, and processes to build a solid vision and drive growth. The event will show the ‘gateway to growth’ by identifying the 10 growth processes that are the primary channels to achieve revenue growth for an organisation. Apart from its signature Global Mega Trends and TechVision 2020 research initiatives, Frost & Sullivan will provide participants an insight into understanding strategy formulation, implementation, and development through a structured approach for geographic expansion and growth using tool-based interactive sessions.

“An essential element of any company’s growth process is to understand where the company is positioned in terms of growth and what lies ahead of them in future. In order to tackle these factors, business leaders are seeking the most pertinent global forces that can affect their business and personal lives, and the next generation business models for success. Through GIL 2013, Frost & Sullivan, will stimulate development of a visionary perspective, help CEOs develop a system to evaluate and systematise their company’s growth pipeline and finally reposition themselves on the Growth Excellence Matrix”, says Aroop Zutshi, Global President and Managing Partner, Frost & Sullivan. Aroop, besides providing the key note on Journey to Visionary Innovation, will be facilitating the first workshop focusing on ‘The Growth Excellence Matrix – Benchmarking Where We Are and Creating a Visionary Innovation and Navigation System’.

According to Y.S. Shashidhar, Managing Director, Middle East, North Africa and South Asia, Frost & Sullivan, “CEOs report their greatest internal challenge to growth is ‘implementing growth strategy with the current management team’. Therefore, in our endeavour to share and fulfil the quest of CEOs and their Growth Teams, Frost & Sullivan, this year, will introduce an interactive and thought-provoking workshop on Strategy Development and Implementation, which will focus on Geographic Expansion as one of the important growth processes. Through this workshop, companies will get a thorough understanding of corporate strategy formulation, its successful implementation after considering competitive strategy and strategic sourcing.”

The Congress will offer participants an opportunity to collaborate and brainstorm with Frost & Sullivan’s Growth Consultants and industry peers on rethinking and strengthening their companies’ growth strategies through industry specific groups. Workshops with pre-designated industry groups such as Automation, Automotive & Transportation, Chemicals & Petrochemicals, Energy & Power, Environment & Building Technologies, Healthcare, IT and Telecom, Metals and Minerals will focus on the impact of global mega trends on industries, investments and careers. The objective of these workshops would be to set the stage for visionary thinking by learning how to leverage interactive tools to understand opportunities/threats arising out of future Mega Trends and to prepare contingency plans based on probable scenarios amongst other challenges faced by the companies.
