The University of Nicosia and Globaltraining, in collaboration with the UNIC Career Success Centre and selected sponsors are bringing to you the series of talks “Talking to Global Minds”, featuring some of the brightest minds on the planet, namely Peter Hinssen, Suneel Gupta, Costas Markides and Ethan Kross. Join the brightest minds on the planet, who challenge the status quo in business, spearhead innovation and shape our ideas for the decisive year ahead.

Suneel Gupta is the best-selling author of “Backable”, which is rooted in Suneel’s journey from the “Face of Failure” for the New York Times to the “New Face of Innovation” for the New York Stock Exchange. Suneel is the founding CEO of RISE, which partnered with former first lady, Michelle Obama to deliver low-cost healthcare services to people in need. RISE was named “App of the Year” by Apple and sold in a successful exit to One Medical (NASDAQ: ONEM). Suneel later ran for U.S. Congress and now serves on faculty at Harvard University.

The ground-breaking book ‘Backable’ that boldly claims the key to success in business is not talent, connections, or ideas, but the ability to persuade people to take a chance on potential. Being backable is not about charisma, connections or even your resume – but rather your ability to persuade people to take a chance on you and your ideas.

The good news? Gupta claims the “it quality” can be learned. Inside Backable are longheld secrets from extraordinary people, including Oscar-winning filmmakers, members of Congress, culinary stars, venture capitalists, and founders of iconic companies – along with 7 simple steps that you can use to immediately make yourself backable.
