Mr. Akram expressed his thoughts, while addressing to the audience "Steve and I are delighted to have conducted the leadership seminars hosted by IBA CEE in Karachi. From our combined experience of having partnered with a number of international leaders, we feel they are often not able to play their best game because they are not aware of and focussed on their real passion and competence. This results in the leaders struggling to inspire and motivate their teams to deliver a superior performance. We have also observed that leaders lack standardised and simple methodology/tools that can assist them to successfully deliver strategic change in their organisations. It was a stimulating experience leading the seminars at IBA CEE with some great participation from and interaction with the audience. I look forward to coming back to Pakistan to co-lead the Strategic Leadership programme at IBA CEE in Karachi and Lahore in July this year."
The session was attended by a number of working professionals from various renowned companies at various levels such as: Directors, CEOs, HoDs and Managers. The faculty members and students from different institutes also attended the session.
