con­sis­tency, own­er­ship and team­work.. “This is why Mo­bilink has at­tracted more than 38 mil­lion sub­scribers and main­tain­ing mar­ket lead­er­ship through cut­ting-edge, in­te­grated tech­nol­ogy, the strong­est brands and the largest port­fo­lio of value added ser­vices in the in­dus­try. We have a broad­band car­rier di­vi­sion pro­vid­ing next gen­er­a­tion In­ter­net tech­nol­ogy as well as the coun­try’s largest net­work with over 9,000 cell sites mak­ing ev­ery­day a bet­ter day for its cus­tomers” he main­tained.

Pres­i­dent and CEO Ufone Rainer Rathge­ber said he led his or­ga­ni­za­tion with a prin­ci­ple of trust and pos­i­tive ap­proach. “Pos­i­tive at­ti­tude to­wards peo­ple along with lead­er­ship charisma are a must for lead­ing any or­ga­ni­za­tion amidst high ex­pec­ta­tions and se­ri­ous chal­lenges. Be­sides the low­est call rates (higher taxes, clear sound qual­ity and best net­work, Ufone of­fers its cus­tomers sim­pli­fied tar­iffs with no hid­den charges, he said. With a strong and uniquely hu­mor­ous com­mu­ni­ca­tion di­rec­tion that has now be­come Ufone’s sig­na­ture across all ad­ver­tis­ing me­dia, Ufone gives its cus­tomers many rea­sons to smile” he said.

US Deputy Head of Mis­sion Jonathan Pratt also shared his views about lead­er­ship. To me a lead­er­ship should be self­less, have re­la­tion­ship with his col­leagues, could iden­tify key peo­ple for ad­vice and sup­port and (in diplo­macy should know how to lis­ten. It is dur­ing your care­ful lis­ten­ing you can de­tect open­ings where you could break in and con­vince the op­po­nent, he said.

Amer Hashmi, Ad­viser NUST, iden­ti­fied seven power cor­ri­dors of lead­er­ship in Pak­istan that shape the pol­icy and strat­egy of the coun­try. Un­for­tu­nately lack of clear vi­sion has been a se­ri­ous cause that none of our 165 univer­sity could pro­duce any leader, he said. He called for em­pow­er­ment of youth with the help of en­trepreneurs.

Out­go­ing CEO Te­lenor Michael Fo­ley said the world is rocked with chal­lenges and only by dint of true lead­er­ship qual­i­ties can we face th­ese chal­lenges as well as changes. Her termed Te­lenor Pak­istan team won­der­ful peo­ple to work with and wished his suc­ces­sor Ir­fan Wa­hab all the best wishes. In his speech, Ir­fan Wa­hab Khan paid rich trib­utes to Michael Fo­ley say­ing Te­lenor was all about em­pow­er­ing the peo­ple of Pak­istan. We be­lieve in ac­cess of in­for­ma­tion to ev­ery child, sup­port farm­ers’ com­mu­nity and give our cus­tomers the best in the field.

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Nes­tle Pak­istan Lim­ited Bruno Olier­hoek ob­served that Nestlé’s global “Shared Value Ap­proach” was work­ing with stake­hold­ers in gov­ern­men­tal and non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tions to make a pos­i­tive im­pact in the fields of nutri­tion, water, en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity and ru­ral de­vel­op­ment. He gave the ex­am­ple of “Nestlé Healthy Kids Pro­gramme” suc­cess­fully run­ning in more than 70 schools and ben­e­fit­ing over 70,000 chil­dren. This pro­gramme is one of the sev­eral we are con­duct­ing as the lead­ing Nutri­tion, Health and Well­ness Com­pany in Pak­istan and around the world, he added. The di­a­logue was fol­lowed by an in­ter­ac­tive Q&A ses­sion and the au­di­ence in­quired about the govern­ment’s fu­ture strat­egy to gen­er­ate con­sen­sus among the po­lit­i­cal par­ties on na­tional is­sues. Mahreen Khan, a pol­icy con­sul­tant and former as­so­ciate with BBC asked the govern­ment to re­de­fine its pri­or­i­ties and be a truly wel­fare state.
