Scaling up is a challenge with a multitude of factors testing the organization's managerial skills, capacity, ambition and finally, commitment towards making a meaningful difference in the lives of many. It can only succeed if it is done effectively and is creating the intended impact.

The Dialogue aims to demystify the 'what' and 'how' of Scaling Effectively through Inspirational Keynote speeches, Insightful panel discussions, Informal round table sessions and Engaging field visits.
