As companies' endeavour to thrive in a rapidly accelerating global economy, their emphasis on innovation as well as leveraging industry's best practices has grown multi-fold. Business leaders across the region face the onus of identifying and securing long-term growth. Their choices in turn are driven by an appreciation of a multitude of variables, and how to innovate to succeed has been pivotal.

How to create a strong foundation for Innovation; what is the importance of building the CEOs growth team; what are the most important global mega trends - potential scenarios of specific trends in 2020 and how equipped are we to face these? What are the top emerging and innovative technologies that will impact industries, strategies and business decisions in the Middle East? How can one apply Mega Trends to identify "white spot" opportunities and develop actionable growth strategies?

Frost & Sullivan seeks to address these questions at the core of the business community through tool-based interactive sessions at its premier leadership event, Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL), which brings together visionaries, innovators, and leaders to inspire and be inspired. Scheduled to be held on 19th February 2012 at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE, this is one event where an interactive exchange of fresh ideas, innovative strategies, and proven best practices provides CEOs and their management teams with the necessary tools to stay ahead of the growth curve.

The Congress will offer participants an opportunity to collaborate and brainstorm with Frost & Sullivan Growth Consultants and industry peers on how to effectively capitalise growth opportunities through industry specific groups. Workshops on industry groups such as Defense, Energy, Environment, Healthcare, Information and Communication Technologies, Metals, Specialty Chemicals, Supply Chain and Logistics, will focus on the macro-to-micro approach. It will first help companies in understanding the impact of the global mega trends on Middle East business, culture and society, identify opportunities and thereafter adopt a tool-based approach to design actionable growth strategies.

"Understanding the impact of global mega trends and realising opportunities that lie ahead of them is just the first step. Through our continuous interactions with the industry, we have realised that the challenge that most companies face is how they convert this knowledge into actionable, implementable growth strategies. Through GIL 2012, Frost & Sullivan, will not only identify key mega trends that may affect companies and their industries and develop a long-term strategy. It will take this a step ahead and guide them through this Journey to Visionary Innovation via structured growth processes to facilitate effective implementation", says Y. S Shashidhar, Managing Director, Frost & Sullivan, Middle East and North Africa.
