Leadership & Entrepreneurial Aspiration Development (LEAD) is an exclusive program of Asian School of Business that focuses on building entrepreneurial mindset and inculcating leadership & professional business skills in the students.  As a part of the Leadership & Entrepreneurial Aspiration Development (LEAD) series, Asian School of Business hosted Captain Akhilesh Saxena- Kargil War Hero and Motivational Speaker & Global Industry Leader on 1 Aug 2019.

Captain Akhilesh is the living example of sheer grit, passion, determination and commitment. A natural leader, he showcased the qualities of leadership, teamwork, strategic planning and bravery during the most challenging phase of his professional life, on the battlefield of the Kargil war. Captain Akhilesh initiated the talk by sharing his experiences of Kargil war and shared that there are similarities between military operations and corporate working. There are obstacles, opportunities, planning for eventualities and contingencies on both the fronts. He inspired students to excel in whatever they do by taking right decisions. He also advised them not to consider ‘money’ as an all-important factor but to consider ‘challenges’ and ‘team spirit’ as the main spur for long term success. He added that time is changing now and opportunities are immense to grab, provided one has the right attitude. The session was closed with vote of thanks by CRC team to him.
