When He Speaks, CEOs Listen

By The HR Observer

Ram Charan is one of the world’s most influential and exemplary business thinkers. Having worked with leading companies across the globe, he is a dynamic and intensively sought-after business advisor, author and speaker.

What is a man but the sum of his ideals and the product of his influences? Even the most ground-breaking business leaders use the ideas, perspectives, and advice of influential thinkers as the basis for their own thoughts and actions.

For three and a half decades, Ram Charan, has been working behind-the-scenes with several top firms, CEOs and boards of our time. In his work with companies including GE, Bank of America, DuPont, Novartis, 3M, Verizon, Tata Group and many others, his ground-breaking concepts have revolutionised the language and practice of business in organisations across the globe.

Fortune Magazine calls Ram Charan “the most influential consultant alive,” thanks to a reputation further leveraged by coaching more than a dozen leaders who went on to become powerful CEOs.
Drawing on this experience, Charan’s uncanny ability to solve even the toughest of business problems for senior executives is a testament to the fact that his timely and concrete advice remains a powerful tool in navigating today’s uncertain business climate.

Former Chairman of GE Jack Welch says Charan “has the rare ability to distill meaningful from meaningless and transfer it in a quiet, effective way without destroying confidences,” while Ivan Seidenberg, the former CEO of Verizon, calls Charan his “secret weapon.”

Extraordinary times demand extraordinary leadership and make no mistake about it; we still find ourselves in unprecedented and turbulent waters. Charan’s messages are practical, and his real-world solutions are presented with electrifying effect. He both shakes up and inspires his audiences and shows them not only what lies within their grasp, but how to keep ahead of the chasing pack.

Ram Charan has captured his business insights in numerous books and articles. In the past five years, Dr. Charan’s books have sold more than 2 million copies including his best-seller ‘The Talent Masters’.
A man with unparalleled insight into why some companies are more successful than others, Charan’s philosophies will help ensure that your business emerges leaner, stronger and well ahead of the competition.

Ram Charan will be headlining the HR Summit and Expo 2015, November in Dubai. Download the Summit brochure to know more about his session on “The Road to Talent Mastery in the New Economy” and other keynote sessions.
