It’s my calling/ my mission: I feel passionate about helping corporate leaders become financially independent and free and create wealth for themselves and their families; while having great work life balance.
I graduated in Architecture. I practiced as an Architect in one of the top Architecture firms in India for 2.5 years. I was fortunate to get amazing experience from design to execution, independently handling sites. While doing so, I realized, there’s lot of “management” required in any field. I had applied for interdisciplinary post graduate courses in US. Got admissions in 5 universities, one of them offered me full tuition waiver and scholarship. However, my US student visa was rejected. Then I decided to pursue MBA in India. I have done MBA from one of the top 5 B schools in India. I remember we were just 19 girls in the class of 120 students!
I got placement on day 1. My job was in Mumbai, so I relocated there. I worked for some time in one of the biggest financial institutes. I got I got married at that time and I could not continue working in that city. When I moved back to my hometown, I had offer in IT and Finance. As I was getting my education in Architecture and MBA, I was learning IT in parallel. IT fascinated me and I loved IT because of its pace and impact on human race.
So I started working in the IT sector as a project manager for CAD/ CAM projects. You have to constantly keep yourself updated in IT. You have to upskill yourself in line with the technology changes; otherwise you become obsolete. I have 20 years of experience within IT sector. Within IT also I have switched my career. Starting as a project manager, I moved up roles such as program manager/ portfolio manager, product manager etc. I took on a client facing role of program director in one of the biggest banks in NYC. I worked in client facings roles for a few years in US. I have been a program director and a financial controller for multimillion-dollar programs. When I came back offshore, I took the role of Delivery Program Exec. I have handled large delivery project teams in one of the biggest IT companies in the world. Aggressive deadlines, quality of deliverables and demanding clients are some of the challenges that I have managed. After DPE I took on role of Go To Market Leader. I worked in that role for some time. After working for 12 to 14 hours a day, I realized that I need to have better work life balance, especially for my kid. I moved into Learning and Knowledge division as Knowledge Sharing Leader for India. Then I moved into the learning part of L&K. I have created and implemented Cloud learning/ education strategies across multiple client innovation centers.
I have switched my career successfully for 6 times! I have changed career across industries and then across different tracks within IT industry. I have upskilled myself to keep myself relevant and acquired education & certifications. I have certifications in Business/ Career and Life purpose Coaching. I have extensive experience in training and coaching in corporate sector and NGO. I was also diversity lead, coaching and training women. I have coached individuals on handle client presentations, client meetings and create a brand for yourself and how to break barriers.
I have trained/ coached more than 7000 people across 100 countries. I am on a mission to help corporate/ business leaders transform their careers & lives aligned with their calling and create freedom of money & time.
