“Growing up in a sheltered colony, I was a very shy child. Speaking in front of even 2 people used to be a challenge. So shy in fact, that once in a meeting with my top management, I almost forgot my name.
The turning point came early in my career, at an event I was managing. The emcee did not turn up and I suddenly became the emcee, in front of 1000 people. Since then I have never looked back.
To use your Mind to the full potential: I believe 80% of all challenges are in our Mind. If we take a step back and calm ourselves, we realize the situation is not so bad and is all part of the game.
From those shy beginnings, I went on to work with two of India’s biggest Groups. First, Tata Chemicals and now today, am the Head of Corporate Communications for GODREJ Industries.”
