India has set itself apart by becoming the world's most mature market for tapping into offshore workers. With its world-renowned educational institutions, the world's largest English-speaking population, the world's fastest growing knowledge-economy workforce, a business culture focused on quality and a distinct advantage gained by leveraging time zones for global business, India provides an environment and business climate for building remote workforces unrivaled by any other country. Derrick will be traveling with a select group of senior thought leaders, executives, and practitioners from multi-national companies from the United States, Europe, and Canada. Participants will have multiple opportunities to share insights, discuss trends and learn best practices on how they are making talent part of business performance strategy and transforming their global workforce operations.

The delegation will be from November 2 through 8 and will start in New Delhi at the National HRD Conference. Delegates will participate in India's largest and most strategic HR conference, discussing the themes of change management and innovations in human capital management. On day two, the group is joined by sponsors Hewitt, Hexaware, TMI India, Wipro and the Boston Consulting Group in a full day summit on Virtual Global Talent Management. Over the course of the next two days, topics ranging from the future of India's workforce to global talent acquisition, retention and engagement will be discussed with senior ISB faculty and top executives from Microsoft and the Hyderabad business community. From there, the delegation travels to Mumbai where it will visit the EDS BPO call center to observe its operations and then assemble for a roundtable on the impact of talent in international mergers.
