More on The MxMIndia Emerging Leaders Series

01 Feb,2013

As mentioned in our earlier announcement, the MxMIndia Emerging Media Leaders Series will be a bi-monthly series (that’s one every other month) and will see nominations being invited from specific segments from the Indian media, marketing and advertising world. A jury will deliberate and decide on who among the contenders fits the bill. Since the number is limited, the decision is not going to be easy, and we will take our time on deciding on the list. We will also do our homework on each and every candidate before they come up for the jury meeting.


Who is an Emerging Leader:

For the Emerging Leader series, we are looking at leaders-in-the-making who, by virtue of their performance, competence and commitment, are in the forefront of their organisations.


An Emerging Leader is under 35 years in age and has between 7 and 13 years of experience.


While there is no pre-requisite of an educational qualification, what we are looking for is a clear sign that the contender will be a CxO/xCD/Editor in the next five to seven years. Or even sooner.


Who can nominate?

Anyone. Bosses, friends and self. We will not reveal to the jury who nominated a contender. However, we insist that the nomination is not done without the knowledge and concurrence of the nominee.


What’s critical is that the recommendation reaches us in a certain format with all the mandatory data in.


At a certain stage in the process of shortlisting, we will require you to furnish us with proof of age and experience.


The process

The link to the nomination form will be provided on Thursday, February 7 with the last date etc.


Once the nomination form comes in and we find that all the necessary data has been filled in and the nomination is eligible (given age and experience), we will interview the nominee as per his/her time preference (as specified in the nomination form). Each interview will be recorded.


Part of the interview will be on video (in person or captured via an internet interface).


The interview duration (including video) will not exceed 10 minutes.


A team of top professionals will be invited to constitute the jury.


The nomination form, the interview responses and the videos will then be shared with a jury.


Each jury member will be given a week’s time to appraise the nominations and that will be followed by a jury meeting.


In order to ensure that there are no attempts to influence jury members, the list of jury members will be announced after the meeting is held.
