His experiences span businesses such as family owned entities, JVs and MNCs, where he witnessed the complete life cycle of an organization right from start-up, growth, downsizing and turnaround.  

This repertoire of experience has equipped him with rich insights into the interplay between culture, strategy and decision making which enabled him to influence the pedagogy and portfolio of program offerings at TMTC. Partnering with Senior Tata Leaders, he has endeavoured to create the context for learning through various touch points of experience. He has further created and curated a body of knowledge around Unconventional Learning which is part of select Leadership Programs.
