International Conference 2023


About the Conference

Contemporary management issues often trigger in us the need to think differently from customary and time-tested management practices. In a dynamic environment, new issues create the need to develop and enhance tools and practices to facilitate more adaptive responses to emerging issues when they surface. Contemporary issues are particularly relevant to the present time of pandemic where it is important for all organisations worldwide to embrace the continuous changes in technology, economy, environment, and government policies across all sectors while remaining focused on the organisational mission and goals to remain competitive. The rise in technology adoption by businesses and consumers, economic fallout of the pandemic across the world, the rise of China as a global aggressive force, our government policies moving towards a more nationalist agenda, and growing geo- political tensions worldwide are some of the recent issues which confront businesses and management. This conference will be a platform for industry practitioners, academicians, entrepreneurs, and research scholars to come together, to learn, share and discuss current emerging topics in management with thought leaders, technologists, and learning experts. This would be a great knowledge sharing event for a diverse audience embracing international and national participants. The event has renowned keynote speakers, practitioner-led workshop sessions, and offers an excellent networking platform. We invite original research papers for presentation from industry practitioners, doctoral scholars, and academicians on the impact of these contemporary issues on business sustainability and excellence.
