Jazz and the LUMS Office of Advancement recently started ‘DisruptEd: Ideas that matter’. This speaker series will serve as a platform for stimulating discourse and disruptive ideas that connect different facets of the contemporary ecosystem and create pathways for un-learning and re-imagining.
The first talk of the series was ‘Leadership in the Age of Rapid Digitalization’ with Aamir Ibrahim, CEO Jazz. During his talk, he highlighted how the constantly evolving digital landscape makes leadership a challenge. Aamir encouraged students to disregard failure when taking important decisions and to learn from them instead of becoming rigid in their approach. He also gave detailed examples from his career as the CEO of Jazz, highlighting his failures and how he learned from them. Students and the faculty also asked Aamir a host of questions regarding his leadership decisions at Jazz and the future of the telecom industry.
Jazz and LUMS have prioritized innovation and digitalization as core strategic goals to advance the overall development objectives of Pakistan’s vision 2025. Jazz’s leadership philosophy highlights three aspects: expand digital literacy, scale up tools that enable connectivity, and form strategic partnerships with like-minded institutions to leverage digital learning in Pakistan.
