?Procurement League brings you another thought-provoking live discussion on "CPO to CEO: How to make a leap?" The speaker will be Amitabh Prasad, Chief Executive Officer, Sterlite Power Brazil.

????Amitabh Prasad is an experienced industry professional with over 25 years of expertise in leadership positions across power and infrastructure sectors. Over the last three years, he has successfully led the Global Supply Chain function for Sterlite Power across India and Brazil, including his role as Board advisor for Sterlite Power Brazil. He is now playing a pivotal role in further strengthening the company's operations in Brazil, together with the strong Brazil leadership team.

Amitabh had proven his leadership acumen and strong project execution expertise over and again in Indian, African, and European markets for organizations like Airtel, British Telecom, Ericsson, Tata, DuPont, and Xerox. 

?In this live discussion with Amitabh, we will understand how he prepared when he moved into a CEO role from a CPO background and what advice he would give to procurement and sourcing leaders who see themselves as CPO or CEO in the next five years.

?We will also discuss how he created a common bond and purpose among his team members while working in a cross-cultural team and how suppliers should prepare themselves for cross-border traders and cross-cultural economy.
