My Professional Journey

Pre-1999: Formal education
B. Tech from IIT Kanpur (1997) and PGDM from IIM Ahmedabad (1999).

1999-2004: First 3 jobs
This was at 3 starkly different companies. At Asian Paints and General Electric, I was an IT projects manager. This was good exposure to how processes work in larger organisations. Next, at an experiential education start-up called iDiscoveri, I handled B2B accounts in NCR (my first exposure to both the training field and a Sales role)

2005-2017 : Going solo
I struck out on my own to be a coach and learning facilitator. My clients were mostly large firms, interested in making managers more skilled at decision making and managing their teams.

I also taught at management schools (IIM Indore, Symbiosis, TMTC) where topics included Coaching Skills and Data Analysis.

2017 : Startup #1
I co-founded an immersive education start-up called Deep Dive India. After an enthusiastic start with far-out topics like ‘mountain-bike maintenance’ and ‘Himalayan Geology’, the market taught us some hard lessons. We’ve now found our niche in history/heritage education with a North-India bias. And we’re making waves. Take a quick look at Deep Dive India’s FB page here.

2020: Startup #2
I created Final Stretch, to solve a problem faced by Founders of startups: they wish to delegate, but feel that 2nd-tier managers aren’t ready for it. I have applied my experience as a Founder plus my training & coaching experience to design this program.
