My life Story. The need of a professional life mentor, inspiration, storytelling, motivation & hope. I wanted to create tangible measurable impact in people’s lives.

We want to offer bespoke services to our clients and reach masses through events /technology & digital mediums. We are looking at an investor not only from money perspective but also from value lens. The values have to align to be successful in long term.
What is a typical day at work like for you?
That’s an interesting question. I love Mondays, mostly because the day flies by in a flash.
On a given day, during the early hours you will find me speaking to the clients, finding out – proactively – what their priorities are for the week, meeting with the team for half an hour to communicate the clients’ needs and organizing the team schedules around the client’s priorities.
I do this on Monday so that the rest of the week is well organized and we can effectively use our team’s time in exceeding client’s expectations and avoid Friday evening surprises. I spend rest of the day strategizing week for our core products, new clients, old clients, events in pipeline, any speaking engagements and our digital presence.
Rest of the week goes in delivering the product(s), updating the status with the client, answering emails and calls from our global teams. My role involves extensive strategic management responsibilities and staying organized is not an option.

Dream Big and keep developing your skills and abilities to get to your goals. Nothing is impossible, keep walking.
