It is indeed a great pleasure to talk about the vision behind Firebird Institute of Research in Management – a unique centre for thought leadership in corporate management. Having actively participated in the industry-academia discussions over the last couple of decades, it is my firm belief that Executive Education Programmes at all levels can be created with the highest excellence only when structured and facilitated by industry veterans who are personally experienced in what they articulate.

It is also my belief that active engagement with industry in the form of original research, and Executive Education Programmes is essential for Firebird to maintain thought leadership. This in turn would benefit industry through transformational training, coaching, mentoring, and other instruments of leadership development.
