Prabhas Sinha, COO and Founder
Prabhas Sinha was a student of Professor Steven Sonsino and a classmate of the late Rami Makhzoumi at London Business School. He became a team member working closely with Saurabh Srivastava at CA Technologies and quickly developed strong experience in Product Management and Product Strategy.
Prabhas has been the driving force behind the Legacy Institute after Rami’s sudden passing. He has been instrumental in getting the team together and in supporting the research activities of the Legacy Institute. As COO, he is responsible for the corporate strategy and operations of the Legacy Institute.
Prabhas’s interest in legacy started with Rami’s interrupted dream, his own close encounter with death and the realisation that his had been ‘an ordinary life’. Now he has a bigger vision.
“We do not have enough people with the skills or experience to solve large complex problems of massive scale. So we’re launching a global movement to help legacy builders to solve the world’s thorniest problems – by learning from those who have already built their legacies. Working together with successful legacy builders is the only way to create a platform for extraordinary leaders to build the extraordinary legacies we need to meet the UN’s 2030 goals in each country.”
Steven Sonsino, CEO and Founder
Professor Steven Sonsino is a bestselling author, a leadership expert and an authority on legacy – how CEOs and entrepreneurs are changing the world, beyond philanthropy.
In 2011 he founded the Legacy Institute, a global research initiative to capture and share legacy research with hundreds of entrepreneurs and business owners over the last five years. His 10 books include The CEO’s Journey, Reinventing the Future and – new for 2017 – What’s Your Legacy?
Steven is a Fellow in the Centre for Management Development at London Business School and a visiting professor at four other business schools worldwide, including the Indian School of Business in Hyderabad.
He has been a keynote speaker since 1992 and his first leadership book Leadership Unplugged (2003) was described by Harvard Business Press as ‘learned yet practical’.
Steven’s private clients include Microsoft, HSBC, Emirates, Exxon Mobil, Deutsche Bank, SABIC, Sanofi Aventis and Coca-Cola among many others.
