What I can do for you
As a globally recognized leadership expert, I’m here to facilitate powerful workplace conversations, inspire innovation and creativity, and advise corporations to take ownership of their talents. And I do it with a blend of Ivy League prowess, Wall Street experience & a few hot Bollywood dance moves.
But, what does that really mean for you?
It means that I can advise you to…
· unleash cutting edge trademarked strategies including Connectional Intelligence™ and Innovation Sparring Zones™ in your company so your new norm becomes a culture rich with friction-free communication, an open flow of ideas and profitable collaboration
· create the urgency you need in your teams so they develop better and more innovative products, make the best use of their top talent and design processes that work across generations
· redesign your analyst and orientation programs so your retention rate of new hires increases 10 fold
· coach your company leaders to reframe their thinking around innovation, diversity, and what it takes to execute never-heard-of before ideas
But that’s just a sneak peek. Today, it’s always a bigger picture and new challenges arise by the minute. My goal is to advise you to navigate them in a brilliant and bottom-line boosting way.

What makes me different
It can be difficult to know if someone is the real deal by just browsing through their website. So, I wanted to share a few things I’ve done that might be important in deciding whether or not you’d like to hire me to speak, or train your teams or consult with you on the most important aspects of your business:

· I founded a global volunteer chapter network called +acumen for Acumen Fund with 2000+ members.
· I worked at Lehman Brothers through the boom and bankruptcy, as well as Barclays Capital and Deloitte Consulting and have a deep understanding of challenges for emerging talent and corporate failures

· I was invited to Davos as one of 20 top millennial leaders to speak on a panel in front of attendees like Arianna Huffington and Bill Gates
