Dr. Param Srikantia, a Professor, TED X speaker and former television host, is well acquainted with the art of energizing a live audience. He draws upon 30 years of leadership experience in six global conglomerates coupled with teaching and scholarly research on multiple continents. He has authored over 35 scholarly papers in management published or presented in the U.S., Europe, Asia, South America and Africa.
Dr. Srikantia’s public seminars based on non-traditional ways of unleashing human potential have grown to a contagious level of popularity reaching over 150K attendees in Cleveland, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Washington DC, Toronto and the New York metropolitan areas. Before joining the faculty at Baldwin Wallace University, Dr. Srikantia was a consultant at the World Bank, designing workshops for finance ministers of several countries. He has also facilitated leadership seminars to management teams from over 75 countries in a global leadership project sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). He has worked at the World Bank, Unilever, Arthur Andersen, the American Cyanamid Company, Lederle Laboratories and the Tata Group.
The former Director of Program Planning for the international seminar organization, The Institute for Management Studies (IMS), Steven Daniel, Ph.D., equated Srikantia’s capabilities with those of seven legendary management educators and invited him to speak at the Advisory Board Meeting of IMS featuring business leaders from 26 cities across North America and Europe:
"Dr. Srikantia is one of the very best educators with whom IMS has worked," Daniel wrote. "This is saying a great deal, as IMS has been around since 1974 and has been fortunate to work with many remarkable people over the years, including Stephen Covey, Charles Handy, Peter Drucker, Michael Porter, David Ulrich, Vijay Govindrajan and Ram Charan to name just a few. As a thinker and educator, I believe that Dr. Srikantia occupies a secure place in this exclusive group."
Echoing a similar sentiment, Don Gorning, Chair Emeritus of IMS Cleveland, noted Srikantia’s record-breaking ratings from participants on his national seminar tour:
“IMS is a 44-year-old global management development program, which conducts monthly, one-day educational experiences for our members - middle to senior level managers from Fortune 1000 organizations. Our IMS Faculty is comprised of the finest minds from business and academia worldwide. Luminaries such as Peter Drucker, Ken Blanchard and Marshall Goldsmith have been members of the illustrious IMS Faculty. Param became a valued member of our esteemed IMS Faculty - top thought leaders from business and academia worldwide. His one-day development opportunities received some of the highest evaluation scores in the 44-year history of IMS.”
