Something about meI have been a successful serial entrepreneur with many start-ups under my belt. I had many stints in the corporate world to help me understand the culture. I’ve had a very satisfying journey as the Master Franchise of Podar Jumbo Kids, preschool and Day Care for the last 11 years, with over 50 franchise centers. My latest adventure is into the land of books. I own Spellbound Kids’ Bookstore, Bangalore. As the Managing Director of Panchajanya Fashions Pvt Ltd, i’m the distributor(Karnataka) for Raymonds Home, Bombay Dyeing, Dickies, Mafatlal, Proline and Swayam. With my hands in different pies such as tech start ups, realty and textiles, I believe that entrepreneurship provides my creative bent of mind the greatest gratification possible. My strengths as listed below. Customer Delight: Don’t you love it when you walk into a new place you are trying and are just bowled over by the courteous staff and wonderful service. We all love our egos pampered and good customer service does just that. I’m passionate about providing a delightful experience to customers. I have been able to raise the bar in preschool education by offering customer engagement techniques to this severely service driven industry. Franchising: I strive to ensure that all the stakeholders in any venture are enriched by the association. After understanding the finer nuances of customer satisfaction, providing viable franchise options has been my area of expertise. Striving to stay ahead by incorporating current, relevant practices and technology into operations has been my forte. Leadership: I believe that leadership is about leading by example. I engage the entire organization in motivational programs, to keep the force surging! Marketing Campaigns: I am able to perceive the needs of the customer effectively and use the same for intuitive marketing campaigns and to drive good publicity.
