Something about me:
"One of the most important things that I have learnt in my personal life and professional career is to be a master of 'NO'. Because, only when you get rid of the non-essential can you be truly focused on the important."
The best advice I’ve received…
"Study secular changes in consumer behavior and technology without a bias. It helps strategically position one for a more sustainable and long career."
What can I contribute as a Mentor?
"I can help students and young professionals with developing relevant technical and essential soft skills in an evolving work dynamic."
Preferences and availability:
I am willing to mentor 3 young professionals or students during weekdays or weekends twice a month, remotely or in person. However, the frequency and length of mentoring sessions will be an agreement between Mentor and Mentee.
