CEO Unplugged is a yearly two-day event organized by Glocal Pvt. Ltd. comprising series of panel discussion where we try to establish a forum to discuss about contemporary business challenges, opportunities and futuristic view with a sight of experiential learning to the new comers in the business and students. We have discussion with 25 CEOs along with 5 moderators from mainstream media for a broader insight.
