What was the inspiration for you to take up the career you are in?

Teaching was an inherent part of my upbringing and present in my DNA. My professional career started as an English teacher, post which I worked in various reputed schools.
After DPS, I served as Regional Director (North) for Zee Learn Pvt. Ltd. where I managed 275 Kidzee and 75 CBSE Schools and later worked as COO of Radcliffe – a chain of schools. The exposure at Radcliff boosted my experience and expertise across almost all Indian states. Besides, I took various initiatives and launched a bouquet of schools and crafted the existing schools into centres of excellence.
I have proven and tested complete expertise in running all different levels of school & higher education, skill training and other successful business models and service models, whereas converting institutions into a centre of excellence is my forte. I am not just specialized in overall P&L management, operations, administration, infrastructure, HR, training and development but also equipped with sound knowledge of curriculum development, teacher training and understanding of institutional developments, administration, affiliation, academics and public relations. I have authored curriculum specifications for all boards, A levels and Baccalaureate Diploma Program and even rolled-out vocational institutions. Being a constant learner, I have pursued doctorate in education and authored 28 publications besides being proficient in content creation, and teaching with innovative & best practices world over.

What have been some of your achievements?

The reason for the success is design and innovation of its process, that enables the creation of leading learning communities for the future, where the institutions are dynamic, adaptive, self-organizing systems, not only capable but inherently designed to renew themselves and to grow and change. Education Design is about having an intentional process in order to get to new, relevant solutions that create positive impact in institutions. It is a process for transforming difficult challenges into opportunities for education innovation. The process begins from deep empathy and understanding of needs and motivations of people in this case, the students, faculty, parents, staff and administrators. It is collaborative; Thinking benefits greatly from the views of multiple perspectives. Given the range of needs the institution and students have, the design work will never be finished or solved. It is always in progress. Preferred to always give the confidence that new; better solutions for education are possible and can happen. Evolution is the development of the concept over time. It involves planning next steps, communicating the idea to people involved, and documenting the process. Access too many of the leading education institutions and groups across the world. These include the leading universities, schools, accreditation agencies, examination boards, research organizations, education service companies and multilateral organizations.
