Some of the key speakers at this year’s event include: Rana Kapoor (MD and CEO of Yes Bank), Manish Sisodia (Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi), Suhel Seth (Managing Partner of consultancy Counselage India and columnist), Sachin Pilot (politician), Pratik Gupta (founder of leading digital marketing and media solutions agency Foxymoron), and Anupama Chopra (film critic and author), amongst others.

Sanam Arora, President, National Indian Students and Alumni Union UK, said: “At the National Indian Students and Alumni Union UK we aim to develop future leaders for India, the UK and the Indo-British relationship.

"Through this forum we hope to bring together the young Indian community in Britain with change-makers and inspirational personalities that can enable knowledge transfer and motivate diaspora Indian youth to take a more active role in the India growth story.”

Ayush Rawat, President LSE India Forum 2016 and Head of Business Development at National Indian Students and Alumni UK, said: “With India being labelled as the bright spot for growth time and again when other emerging markets are in turmoil, at the LSE SU India forum 2016 we hope to discuss the road ahead for India.

"We started this conference three years back with the vision to provide students around UK to hear from and interact with the people who make things happen back at home, and this year we hope to deliver just that."
