Topic: Some Sizes Fit All
Speaker: Mr. Akhil Gupta

Abstract

An oft-repeated dictum every time a company fails to replicate its past successes when introducing a new product or entering a new market is that one size does not fit all. Business gurus advise that every unique situation, market, and environment calls for a fresh approach and requires 'unlearning' what one might have learned elsewhere, even if that had met with great success. While this statement may appear to be obvious, it is often quoted out of context. The fact is that certain fundamentals of business-irrespective of the line of business, geography, or scale-are universally applicable. With this context at hand, MBA, IIT Kanpur proudly welcomes Mr. Akhil Gupta, Vice Chairman, Bharti Group & Executive Chairman, Bharti Infratel Limited for the 36th Episode of the Webisodes on the topic "Some Sizes Fit all."

Mr. Akhil Gupta, a chartered accountant by qualification with over thirty years of professional experience, is the vice chairman of Bharti Group and executive chairman of Bharti Infratel Limited. He has played a pivotal role in Bharti's phenomenal growth right since inception and has been closely involved from the very beginning in its growth in the telecommunication services sector-both organically and by way of various acquisitions. He has led the formation of various partnerships with leading international operators like British Telecom, Telecom Italia, Singapore Telecom and Vodafone, in addition to the induction of leading financial investors like Warburg Pincus, Temasek, KKR, Qatar Foundation Endowment, AIF and Sequoia, among many other private equity funds.
