Dr Silvia Vianello (Director of Innovation Centre at SP Jain School of Global Management, Dubai) recently received The Middle East Women Leadership Award at the Asian Leadership Awards (ALA) for her continued commitment to excellence, developing best practices and innovative strategies.
On winning the award, Dr Vianello shared her views on being a leader and said, “If you are a leader, you must create new leaders. We are leaders and we have to give back. I think it is important that all of us have this commitment to give back. Another thing I have learnt is that I wasn’t born in the best condition, but nothing is impossible.”
Hosted since 2011, ALA distinguishes and honours leaders who have contributed and shaped the Asian economy and are visionaries behind today's outstanding businesses.
Winners of the awards exemplify the best in leadership. They epitomise the core values of a successful leader – strength, innovation, ingenuity, knowledge and foresight – values that are imperative to carving out powerful businesses in the global economy.
