Career and Success Coach | Corporate Facilitator
Wouldn't it be so wonderful if you could lead a life that is not given to you by people or situations around you but the one that you desire from within your heart? I had dreamt of such a life for long and, therefore, took a decision of dropping off my decade-long career in geospatial space and follow my heart. No matter how successful and rewarding my job was, I knew my true calling is connecting and engaging with people. So, I went on to become a certified life coach offering personalised 1-on-1 and group coaching programs to-
* To-be professionals not able to decide which course to take next or which skill to acquire that best suits their interest and capability.
* Working Professionals who took a break in career but now want to re-start

Career Counsellor & Certified Trainer
Choosing a right career is very important. A cautious decision taken after 10th class/ 12th class / Graduation and after B.Tech. has a long impact on your life. As education is expensive and requires lot of efforts to be successful, there is a need of a career counsellor/guide.
I guide the students for career options suitable for them on an individual basis after their 10th Or 12th Or Graduation. I also guide them over their fitment for Arts, Commerce and Science Stream.
With realistic approach, I have saved the money of lots of parents and most valuable time of more than 500+ students by showing them the right direction.
