In Conversation with Gopichand P. Hinduja
21 April 2021, 10.30am - 11.30am (UK TIME)
An opportunity to explore entrepreneurship, success in business, and the role higher education has to play in creating the next generation of business leaders.
Our new webinar series allows for you to grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and sit down with our brightest and most influential friends and alumni. Our first guest is one of the most successful business leaders in India and the UK. Gopichand P. Hinduja, fondly known as 'GP' in business circles, joined the family business established in Mumbai by his father, the Hinduja Group, in 1959.
With over a century of experience, intelligent investment and disciplined growth, GP and his brothers, Srichand, Prakash and Ashok have masterminded the Group’s transformation from an Indo-Middle East trading operation into a multi-billion dollar privately owned transnational conglomerate.
Today, the Group is in 100 countries with over 150,000 employees working across eleven business sectors encompassing automotive, energy and renewables, banking, IT, power generation, real estate, project development, media, healthcare, trading and most recently cybersecurity.
GP will be joining the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stuart Croft, to share the fascinating history of the Hinduja Group, discuss what makes a successful entrepreneur, and how higher education institutes can help create the next generation of business leaders. Please submit your questions on our registration form as these will inform our conversation.
A recording of this event will be made available shortly afterwards. All who have registered for the event will receive a link to the recording by email.
