Continuing our tradition of inviting the best minds at the helm of their fields, it gives us great pleasure to invite you to join us for the 16th edition of the ISB Leadership Summit.

The theme for this year’s summit is: “Catalysts of Change” - alluding to the catalysts that have driven change in the past, drive change today and will continue to drive change in the future. At ILS this year, we aspire to holistically explore perspectives on elements that influence change. These catalysts include breakthrough ideas and strong leadership that fosters a spirit of constant change.
