The ETYL journey was an immensely enriching experience - from sharing space with talented individuals across industries, to interacting with eminent business leaders. On the personal front, the most important learning has been the role of passion and patience in ensuring one's success in the long term. The exposure provided by ET Young Leaders both in terms of personal & professional development cannot be substituted in any form.

Immense intangible value has been added by ET Young Leaders, both in terms of recognition within my current organisation as well as networking opportunities with people from across industries. The ET Young Leaders selection process helped me introspect and understand the skills necessary to excel in the current business environment.

The initiative by Economic Times to recognize Young Leaders just stands testimony to what one believes one can achieve. Post becoming a ET young leader, professionally I have been recognised by more people within my firm as well as others and it has helped me move faster to greater responsibilities. Also, ET young leaders has provided me the opportunity to be part of the 43rd St. Gallen's Symposium at Zurich as a Leader of Tomorrow where we participated in plenary sessions and discussions with political and business leaders such as Christine Lagarde(Managing Director, IMF), General Stanley A. McChrystal (former Commander of the U.S Forces in Afghanistan) and Laurence D. Fink (Chairman & CEO, BlackRock).

Meeting and interacting with a diverse set of individuals be it in the group discussion round, chatting with the contestants while waiting for your turn at the CEO interview or with the set of winners who are now connect via a common group, brings with it many firsthand experiences that you can learn from and take those learning and apply to your line of work. The perspective when applied brings a completely different outlook to you as an individual and a as professional. The network that one now has thanks to the program is unparallel.
