What is Perspective?
‘Perspective’ is a unique ‘round table’ driven initiative by Sapphire Connect, which is an extension of Sapphire Human Solutions. ‘Perspective’ a CXO roundtable discussion providing an opportunity to Senior Leaders from all spectrums of businesses to come together and interact, brainstorm on contemporary topics and also meet luminaries of the industry. The idea of Perspective was the result of numerous debates and discussions with both internal members of Sapphire and members from the industry, and what emerged was a consensus on the fact that people need to know about what affects them and how, from the people who have pragmatic views on such matters. A regular interaction is needed for the people, to know what affects them all, besides giving insights into the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of management and leadership aspects. It’s our endeavour to enable closed quarter interactions amongst the people making the sessions impersonal and free-flowing. The insights are also shared via research papers that sum up the entire conference.

Theme – “Stepping into the Boardroom”
Stepping into a boardroom can be a daunting experience for all, whether it’s your first time, you aspire to get there one day or even if you’re a seasoned pro. It can be difficult to know what’s expected of you, how you should behave and what the exact protocol to follow is.
Remember, the reality of being in a boardroom is that you’ve already jumped through enough hoops and proved that you deserve to be there. Some people are surprised by the importance that comes with interpersonal relationships in the boardroom. But if you do a little research into the people you’ll be interacting with, mix in a little emotional intelligence and you’ll be even more effective when you walk through the door.
