Praise for How Indian Business Went Global

Some people leave behind wealth, others leave behind some remnants of power, and some leave behind the passionate energy of their ideas that continually stimulate those whose lives they touch. CK Prahalad belonged to the third category.

Dr. Manmohan Singh, Former Indian Prime Minister

CK Prahalad believed we Indians could be second to none; some businessmen here have taken his message to heart and delivered.

Dr. Raghuram Rajan, Former Governor, Reserve Bank of India

CK Prahalad was gathering us like a shepherd would gather his flock and was essentially bent on chastising us for what we hadn’t done, and how and what we could do.

Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group

CK Prahalad got business leaders to think in a broader scope, got them to think long term, got them to think in a global context. This is a huge contribution.

Ram Charan, Management Guru

What does it take for Indian companies to globalize, the risks that you need to take, and what were the opportunities, were discussed in CEO sessions. This really inspired me to make the first trans-border acquisition of Tetley.

Krishna Kumar, Former Director, Tata Sons
