We started our journey in 1997 and continue to be fascinated by the iterative relationship between Teaching, Training, Executive Coaching and Management Consulting. We have discovered the process by which they embellish each other. Management Consulting and Executive Coaching provide us with real world examples and opportunities to apply our experience and expertise. All such retained learning become processes and frameworks that get tested in our training programmes.
Training, Consulting, Coaching and Mentoring span all our activities. We have worked with over 120 companies spanning Marketing, Management and Technology domains. We have delivered over 900 workshops that have impacted 16000 individual careers. Our experience that we bring to the table, is a rare confluence of People, Business and Technology (PBT) issues.
