Dr Kannan Vishwanatth while receiving the award said “Messaging & clear communications are hallmark of a great leader. Whiling floating three world-class companies in Hong Kong & Latvia, I was driven by passion not just to increase the balance sheet or wealth but to be a catalyst of change in the areas that I always wanted to engage. Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion. I believe “Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work.”. Some believe that true leaders are born that way—naturally charismatic, influential, and inspiring individuals who are destined to make a mark. But while certain people may be naturally predisposed to leadership, just as they’re naturally predisposed to athleticism or musicality, I believe it’s absolutely possible to cultivate the characteristics and skills necessary to call yourself a leader. My journey as an entrepreneur has been marked with many significant imprints in shaping my future aspirations not only to be a global business leader but contribute significantly to the world community. Looking back when I see my initial days where I started from the scratch filled with many exciting landmark achievements stem from the fact that to be a reliable & trustworthy leader, one must be compassionate & team leader rather than working in isolation. I have always empowered my team & associates & given them opportunities to grow in the changing business environment”.
