About the Summit

"Everything Rises and Falls on Leadership" - Leadership Guru, John Maxwell.

Leadership is a much studied and researched topic, and sometimes it can be confusing. J. Oswald Chambers' definition - "Leadership is influence", helps us demystify leadership. For Christians in the marketplace, this means influencing others using and demonstrating Christ like qualities.

The world view around us is changing rapidly. Secularism is being interpreted in many ways and people of faith are constantly challenged to keep their faith private. Under these circumstances, it is natural to ask - is there relevance to the term Christian Leadership? Can we really be successful while staying true to our faith and demonstrating Christian Leadership?

The India Leadership Summit 2017 is an attempt by the Center for Leadership of the South Asia Institute of Advanced Christian Studies (SAIACS) to answer these and many related questions. We have chosen an array of successful businessmen, who have succeeded in the marketplace while staying true to their faith and demonstrated Biblical Leadership principles. They will share tips and practical advice on the topic, based on their own experiences and what they have seen in the marketplace. This is an opportunity for anyone interested in the topic "Christian Leadership in today's Secular Marketplace" - to network, to connect, to be challenged and to be equipped for this task.
