Amazing Leaders (with pictures) at MIT Sloan - MIT Sloan Fellows Program

One of the advantages of coming to a top Business School is that you get to meet/hear some of the best leaders in the world.

I have had the privilege of listening/meeting/knowing the following leaders in the last 6 months:

MIT India Conference' 2011

NRN and Desh Deshpande on the panel

UPS CEO during the Dean's Innovative Leadership Series

Eric Schmidt, Google Chairman during Dean's Innovative Leader's Series - I couldn't get a seat in the audi as it was full so I was sitting outside and watching the live broadcast.

Daniel Hesse, CEO Sprint - Sloan Fellow'89, came to speak with our class. One of my favorite sessions. He spoke how he turned around Sprint. Truly an amazing leader. Gets a standing ovation from the class.

Patrick R. Donahoe, Post Master General & CEO, USPS. Sloan Fellow' 93 also visited campus and spoke to the Sloan Fellows. The sheer scale of USPS operations makes his job so very challenging.

Also, Mark Zuckerberg was at MIT couple of weeks back. Entry was based on a lottery and I did not win. But lot of my friends went and heard him talk about Facebook, social media and its future.
