My Journey – Deepa Khanna

Please tell us about yourself

I, Deepa Khanna was born in a middle class family in Mumbai & that’s where my heart and soul is. After completing my schooling & graduation from Mumbai University & for a couple of years working in Software Company my largest stint was with Intel Technology India Pvt. Ltd. which was the learning curve that helped me carve my destination better and own my journey responsibly. Only after joining Intel, I realized my true potential. Though being one of the first few Ladies Sales Managers at Intel India handling Channel Business, which was fun with its own set of  challenges in a male dominated role then. After Leaving Intel in mid 2012 I started my own Consultancy firm ‘Kreaativ Mind’ and business in Aromatherapy products ‘KayurAaromas’, both from diverse Industries but kinda cater to the need of the hour to solve problem

Say something about your beginning

As a child I was the most carefree, mischievous kid in the family… Slowly things started to change with time. My extrovert nature helped me reach out to Customers with ease & responsibilities turned me into credibility that was visible through my work as a manager & now in all the projects. After working for 22+ years under various roles in different markets taught me agility, understand Customer needs and conduct business fearlessly but with ethics.

Starting up was never easy like many other Entrepreneurs, faced many challenges but that never put me on back foot rather these challenges pushed me even further closer to my goals set by me. During my journey on the way got many opportunities to work with many likeminded professionals and create an eco-system.  I believe if we can come together, we can achieve & win together
