GCNI held its 6th Subir Raha Memorial Lecture on the theme of Business and Trust on 30th November in New Delhi. The Subir Raha Memorial Lecture is an annual event organised to honour Late Mr. Subir Raha, the Founder President of the Global Compact Network India and Former CMD, ONGC. His vision and foresight has been instrumental in leading GCNI to become the first local network to be established as a legal entity in 2003. The Lecture Series was started by Global Compact Network India (GCNI) in 2010, to pay tribute to the achievements of the great leader, and is delivered by experts and luminaries from different walks of life. Since its initiation in 2010, six memorial lectures have been organised by GCNI. This time the lecture was delivered by Mr. Arun Maira, Chancellor, Central University of Himachal Pradesh, Former Member, Planning Commission of India and Former Chairman, Boston Consulting Group, India on “”Business and Trust”” . In his career spanning five decades, Arun Maira has led several organisations, including the Boston Consulting Group in India. The other leadership positions he has held include being the chairman of Axis Bank Foundation and Save The Children, India. He was also board member of the India Brand Equity Foundation, the Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs, the Global Compact, and WWF India. With his vast experience and expertise, Arun is indeed a thought provoking leader. He is invited to speak on various forums and has written several books that capture his insights. Mr. Arun Maira highlighted on issues of trust and credibility, candor, corporate responsibility, consistency and value creation, which are the cornerstone of building trust in businesses. Mr. Maira lecture was even more relevant from UNGC’s perspective as Secretary General of the United Nations is galvanizing global businesses to embed trust, credibility and sustainability to undertake collective action in the run-up to post 2015 global development architecture.
