“I am an experienced entrepreneur & CEO whose career highlights include being part of the founding team of a unicorn (Infosys BPO- $2bn exit), Founder & CEO of Macmillan Publishers’ flagship digital education venture-EnglishUp, which became Brazil’s 3rd largest online English learning co.), working at McKinsey & Co. and having tried and failed (or learned) multiple times but starting back again…

I have operated in/engaged with most major global markets, continue advising companies across sectors on digital strategy/innovation, and mentor several start-ups and charities globally.

Since 2017, I also started my journey of inner transformation by becoming a part of the Self-Realisation Fellowship, a remarkable 100+ year institution started by Paramhansa Yogananda. Integrating yoga and meditation in my life has allowed me to become a better leader and person in all walks of life.”
