A further Oxford Distinction in MBA Strategy & Corporate Turnaround bolstered my professional learning. You will find in me a blend of Fortune 500 sophistication and rigor of an SME/Startup environment. A non-linear career in 7 countries, gave me opportunities that enriched me at the intersection of technology, people and turnaround.
My curiosity-driven career started in 'Consulting' with Accenture in USA, to travel the world and solve business situations as the Trusted advisor to my clients. Later in 'Business Development', I learned fearless cold calling, built personal & B2B relationships, drove technology transformations for CIOs and transitioned work to India. 15 years later, prepared, I assumed the 'Operational Role' as the CEO, to deliver on issues of people, branding, expansion, automation and cash flow.
Each business is different. I contribute with my diversity of experience, deep interdisciplinary skills and a top education. My favorite day is to identify another wicked problem, frame it, drive the solution in collaboration with experts/ multiple stakeholders, and deliver the action under compounding demand/ extreme urgency. I learn a few new things and I repeat the process.
