“Enriching, Enthralling and Enlightening would be the words that could describe the well-thought through and well organised event, the GLE. From self-awareness to social sensitivity, from gaining cultural intelligence to learning from the industry leaders, GLE gave us an exposure to all the facets of leadership development, through innovative activities, visits and interactions. It truly was a great experience."
