Title: Talented Business Ecosystems
Description: In our interconnected world, it has become increasingly difficult to meet the challenges of today by adopting an 'island' approach. There are only a handful of global giants left that can  bring an idea to prototype and then bring that prototype to the market in a silo; and even they are subject to the whims of the fickle marketplace. In the absence of giants, one must develop talented ecosystems consisting of businesses and individuals that collectively have the resources, knowledge and wherewithal to bring ideas to fruition in nuanced contexts that would otherwise be impossible to navigate.

_Topic: Performance Dynamics - Before, The Moment, After
Description: A performance is an interplay of concept, competence, collaboration and connections. All performances can be presentations but the reverse is not always true. The difference lies in the connection that a performer can create with the audience that transforms a great performance into a magical one. Sunita structures her performances into three parts - conceptualization and planning that happens before the act, the three way communication that happens on stage (with the performer herself, with her co-performers and the interaction with the audience) and the reactions of the audience after the performance that sets the stage for future shared experiences. Some profound life lessons can be learnt from the music world in the context of a performance. Sunita will demonstrate her approach to music with the aid of her violin at TEDxBandra.
