RITU'S KeyNote:


Leader’s Block: Every Leader Stumbles. The Best Learn How to Recover!

Ritu G. Mehrish is a woman on a mission to humanize leadership. She provides a refreshing and unique perspective on leadership by talking about the challenges, dilemmas, and blocks that leaders go through in their leadership journey. Her topic ‘Leader’s Block’ (yes, like writer’s block!) is very relevant to the leaders today to prepare them for the future. As per her research and interviews with hundreds of leaders across the globe, she found that Leader’s Block is one of the top reasons for unproductivity and blip in leadership.



But interestingly it’s not talked about - in fact it didn’t even have a name until now. Ritu’s talk will help unblock leaders (and their teams) which results in unlocking their full potential, creating greater engagement, enhancing productivity, and ultimately building leadership staying-power. The cost of Leader’s Block (millions of dollars) is too huge to be ignored. The productivity gains waiting to be unlocked too large not to be taken advantage of. Book Ritu Mehrish to inspire your employees to be future-ready and build leadership staying-power.



Ritu has 20 years of corporate experience working globally in companies such as P&G, GE Capital, and GE spin-off Genpact. She has held several leadership positions in running global operations and managing client relationships. In her last role, Ritu ran a multimillion-dollar business vertical with 1000 people across eight countries and five continents.



Her business and leadership experience has enabled her to bring in a pragmatic approach to leadership development. Her client list -, highlights the level of expertise she brings to the leadership topic. Her book ‘Leader’s Block’ is published by Penguin Random House. She has lived in multiple countries and is currently based in Singapore with her husband and two lovely children.
