This initiative will see top CEOs from north India competing on a common stage for the coveted CEOs Got Talent trophy.

Quote Sheet
Raj Nayak, CEO – COLORS, on the event said, “I’m sure CEOs are bored of their board room presentations. This is a great platform for corporate head honchos to de-stress and show off the cool quotient in their personalities.”

Acclaimed film maker Mahesh Bhatt said, “Spotting talent is a heart-warming adventure for me. It’s even more exciting if you have to spot talent amongst CEOs – the head honchos of our corporate society. It was a hell of an experience judging the first event held in Mumbai and I look forward to an even better experience in Delhi.”

Speaking about the occasion, Neha Dhupia, a renowned Bollywood Actor, said, “I feel both, privileged and excited to judge CEO’s Got Talent. It’s not every day that one gets an opportunity to see corporate czars & czarinas step into my world (read entertainment) as they unleash their hidden passions. And who knows – my next co-star or playback singer could be discovered right here, right now.”

Anupama Mandloi, Managing Director – FremantleMedia India said, “After the excellent response we received, we are back with yet another exciting edition of our ‘CEO’s Got Talent’ initiative. CNBC-TV18 returns as our broadcast partner, assisting us in showcasing the unique talent these corporate stalwarts have. We look forward to this year’s event receiving a positive response as well.”

Prema Sagar, Founding Trustee, Genesis Foundation, said, “CEO’s Got Talent’ is a platform for chief executives to come out of the closet, to do what they love, show their hidden talent – be it music, dance or any other performance, while raising funds to save lives of critically ill children. We are very excited that FremantleMedia has decided to bring the programme to Delhi this time and continue to generously support Genesis Foundation.”

Sourabh Sarkar, Founder Karmyog Foundation, said “CEO’s Got Talent is a unique concept that aims at bringing together some of the most successful people in the country together. It not only gives them a platform to enthrall the audiences by unveiling their ‘other side’ but also lets them contribute toward a larger cause. We are glad to be associated with CEO’s Got Talent.”
