Speaker bio

As I evolved as a professional, I was stumped by the consistency with which people's work and career got compromised - from unfair performance assessments to structures that promote inequity in pay and opportunities, often leading to job-loss, especially in senior levels. Why do great performers only go so far and people not half their caliber go much further in their career? Why do so many professionals set themselves and their organisation up for failure by betting only on their hard-work and loyalty? Having managed HR for divisions and businesses in various organisations, I have developed a compelling frame-of-reference known as the IPAW Framework and set up the Institute for Politics at Work to manifest in people development and organisation excellence. In a career spanning 18 years in the Government, Civil Society and Market, I have worked with organisations such as the Office of the Commissioner of Customs, Beyond the Rim, MaFoi Randstad, Dell, Alcatel-Lucent and Accenture and am presently the Managing Director and Principal Consultant for Institute for Politics at Work, a leadership consulting and research firm. A national gold medalist in basketball, I holds a master’s degree from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai. You can reach me at
