Speaker, Trainer & Coach
Why I do what I do
It was a hot summer afternoon , and I was supposed to make a presentation on selling pitches for a new product.
I was extremely nervous ,as the I had not done anything like this before, and with an audience of 100 sales representatives. The afternoon lunch had its toll on the participants and I could hear many say , Now it’s time to sleep as usually happens during the briefings. This made me even more worried. But the moment I got on stage and began my presentation, I lost the fear and it was a smooth sail. One of my colleagues walked upto me and said I think you should be a trainer, you can make a great impact. His words had a tremendous impact on me and something told me that he was right. That’s how my training journey began with the idea of impacting lives. My induction into Toastmasters made this journey even more exciting an fulfilling where I learnt the nuances of Public Speaking, Coaching and Mentoring.

NLP and Me :I always believed that when you need to produce results that need to be seen outside, extensive work need to be done within. Similarly any change in the external environment has an impact on the inner self. As the saying goes To change the quality of the fruits, you need to work on the roots . NLP took me to new way of understanding how every human represented his world . It brought a transformational change in the way I worked with myself and my participants. From reading NLP and applying it for last few years , have now graduated to a Certified NLP Business Practitioner. This has helped me accelerate the change process within and without.
