Shalini Madan 4th March 2019 295Category: My Journey. ()

I am a B. Tech in Textiles from NIT Jalandhar and actively pursuing my field by being involved in sourcing of textiles and other products from India for global clients. I believe that IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING…esp if you have support of your loved ones.

Share about your business

INDIAN ACCENTS was starred in year 2012 as a sourcing and merchandising company and we provide consultation in terms of design, procurement and quality to global clients who want to source various apparel/ home textiles and handicrafts products from India. Competition is tough but we have an edge in terms of our approach for right quality and on time execution of projects.

Share something from your Corporate career

Upon moving to Delhi post marriage, Getting a job was tough as to my shock, people found me overqualified ( being an engineer)in my chosen field of export merchandising . A chance given by an enterprising lady, who didn’t find my qualifications , marital status and motherhood an impediment for hiring me, resulted in start of this corporate journey. 15 years in some of the best organisations helped me horn my skills in this field.

What was the inspiration for you start your own business or take up the career you are in?

I love the process of creation.. and clothes fascinated me since my early years. Wanted to take up textile designing but upon becoming a textile engineer instead, got into this field of textile exports.

What have been some of your achievements in your professional life?

At one point in my career I got an opportunity to work on getting the factories socially compliant according to government rules so we could give more reason to global clients to source from India . Working single handedly with labour force in factories , creating awareness and training them on social compliance requirements is what I consider an achievement.

The difference you have made to others

I am always keen to work with people who have zeal to learn. So, I consciously try to give projects to startup’s in our industry so they too can learn and grow.

What do you want to be acknowledged for

An enterprising woman who works with a conscience!

Anything else you wish to share

We should never tire of learning in our life. Each day and each person can teach us. So keep open minds.
