I am a strong believer that doing a good job well does not always correlate to the amount of time spent in learning to do it or even actually doing it. The amount of dedication and passion that goes into it does.

My past few years as a Chief Operating Officer in the technology consulting domain has helped me truly understand the opportunities and challenges in building and scaling an organisation. This diverse, global experience and passion for sharing business and technical expertise continue to help me consult at my best for customers. Adding a unique platform like Salesforce to this mix and I'm living my dream job to the fullest!

I love giving back to the ecosystem that has nurtured me. The Trailblazer Community helps me in achieving this goal through community building and mentorship opportunities. I feel immense pride and equal gratitude in seeing how far the community around me has grown and continues to do so.

I’m a people-person with deep emotions and empathy - the perfect ingredients that make me a natural storyteller. I am at my best when I’m sharing my creative expressions with others and am always on the lookout for avenues to do this.
