I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you. ~ Oprah Winfrey

The above quote by one of the finest human beings to have ever walked the earth sums up the DiSRUPPt Thinking Inaugural Women Leadership Summit. The summit is a day-long leadership and professional development conference for all women and men.

Today’s female leaders have come a long way and have broken the glass ceiling in areas which were previously dominated by men. We as a country can boast of women leaders across sectors like defense, banking & financial services, information technology, media, entertainment, politics etc. Gone are the days when men could reserve areas and sectors as theirs’ alone.

We are bringing together amazing achievers from the worlds of business, entrepreneurship, entertainment, media, sports, politics and social space. The summit will enable doers to learn and be inspired by the journey, life lessons and experiences that our achievers will share. The summit will support, connect and empower women, helping them to realize their potential and reach greater heights.

The summit will feature keynote conversations, panel discussions and one-on-one interviews. It is a platform for dialogue, learning, networking and empowering women to be the agents of change, first for themselves and then for the society and the nation. The summit gives you an opportunity to connect with 200+ decision-makers (women & men) from diverse backgrounds in Kolkata and India. The delegates will include CXOs, business owners, entrepreneurs, senior government officials, senior leaders and budding professionals across a wide range of industries including business, government, arts, sports, social services, IT, telecom, banking, FMCG, healthcare, media and entertainment.


Prepare to be inspired by a very successful and powerful lineup of achievers on and off the stage. They will share their stories, and lessons they have learnt along the way. They will share how they managed the challenges that came their way. They will show you how success is ultimately yours if you don’t give up.


Gear up to be among the successful yet humble and smart leaders, with diverse backgrounds, passion, energy and the desire to make a mark. They will motivate and empower you to build a beautiful personal and professional life.


Get all your questions answered at the summit. Most of us think that god has saved the hardest of situations and challenges for us alone. Hold your breath till you hear the speakers at the summit. They will leave you with real life advice and workable solutions, and equip you to take on the world.


The only qualification required to attend the summit is the willingness to look within, discover and make a difference by being the difference. Irrespective of whether you are a homemaker, entrepreneur, business owner, corporate executive, politician, entertainer, academician, student or just a keen learner – you must attend the summit. The summit is open to female as well as male attendees.
