PepsiCo’s powerhouse Chairman and former CEO to visit Melbourne and Sydney for exclusive leaders’ dinner series

 

Leading Australian business events provider, The Growth Faculty, will bring Indra Nooyi to Australia for two exclusive dinner events designed to inspire and inform Australian business leaders in June 2019.

Recognised as a true business powerhouse, Indra Nooyi, directed PepsiCo’s global strategy for more than a decade. During this time, Nooyi’s forward thinking and adaptive response to business conditions and consumer expectations allowed her to grow the brand’s revenue from $35 billion to $63.5 billion and share price by 78 per cent.

 

Indra has appeared twice on Time’s ‘100 Most Influential People In The World’ list and held the top spot on Fortune’s ‘50 Most Powerful Women In Business’ list for four consecutive years between 2006 and 2010.

 

Tickets for An Evening with Indra Nooyi leaders’ dinner in Melbourne (Monday 17 June 2019) and Sydney (Tuesday 18 June 2019) are on sale via www.thegrowthfaculty.com.

 

Underpinning Nooyi’s success is her hallmark motto to “do well by doing good”. Nooyi’s Performance with Purpose strategy was a key driver behind PepsiCo’s sustained growth which responded to the demand for more nutritious products, a reduced environmental footprint and commitment to creating positive relationships with the communities the brand serves.

 

Indra’s business and FMCG experience is unparalleled. During her visit to Australia she’ll share experiences from the frontline about driving sustainable growth during times of disruption, the power of design thinking and innovation and the business of brand reinvention,” says Karen Beattie, The Growth Faculty’s Managing Director.

 

Audiences will also get the opportunity to learn about Indra’s purpose-driven leadership style, lessons in resilience and the leadership essentials every CEO should consider for the next five years,” continues Ms Beattie.

 

Indra’s visit is part of The Growth Faculty’s Leader to Leader series which gives Australian business leaders the opportunity to gain knowledge and insights from the world’s most prominent and celebrated CEOs.

 

From Simon Sinek to Jim Collins to Martha Stewart, The Growth Faculty is dedicated to delivering powerful learning opportunities to leaders and their teams.” says Ms Beattie.

 

Whether in business, politics or striving for personal growth, The Growth Faculty provides access to globally recognised influential speakers to grow leadership skills, navigate disruption and learn from individuals who have overcome challenges to drive real growth.
