Sharing in their personal capacities and drawing upon literary, cultural and anecdotal experiences, Singaporean James Tan and India-born Lalit Jagtiani present a contemporary perspective of India from the inside looking out and outside looking in.


Their aim is not to provide definitive answers about India today, but rather to raise candid questions and points of deliberation for a meaningful post-presentation discussion, to allow participants to form their own conclusions about the country.

About
the Speakers

James Tan works in the aviation industry and is currently based in Singapore. His own passage to India started more than a decade ago when he visited Bangalore for an arts-based youth expedition project.

Revisiting India for an overseas posting two years ago, James continues to be charmed by this nation whose sights and sounds sometimes threaten to overwhelm but yet challenge his own assumptions on what it means to be human.

Lalit Jagtiani has more than 30 years of industry experience with over 16 years in Business Transformation.

He is the author of When Change Happens... A Story of Organisational Transformation, which captures his experiences and insights on organisational transformation. He currently works with SAP’s top accounts, helping to develop their new business models and leverage on the cloud, S/4HANA, mobile platforms and SAP Leonardo.

Lalit’s career has taken him across India and he has worked in cities from Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad to Calcutta, Bangalore and Cochin. His experiences in these diverse Indian cities and states have given him a unique cultural insight into living and working in India.
