“A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.”

Mahatma Gandhi

What makes me different?

It’s been 5 years since I last updated this section. What I wrote back then no longer reflects who I am today. After having spent nearly 20 years in branding and advertising I can say that what makes me different from others around me is my ability to adapt! It’s probably because I have seen a lot of b*****t (haven’t we all?) but somehow I have found a way to filter through it and move on.

I feel most people struggle with change, struggle to live with things they cannot control. For some reason that doesn’t bother me. I can easily separate the unchangeable from the stuff that can be actioned upon. In the process I adapt new tools, new ideas and new people. I mean all kinds of people! It helps to get on top of things faster, to think clearly and move forward! All praise to God!

What am I good at ?

Getting the job done no matter what it takes! As a team and as an individual. It all come downs to output that drives impact no matter how high you go. And if in the process I can energize the people I work with to deliver at their utmost potential then there is nothing like it.

Going forward I want to be known for just being an inspiring leader that enables breakthrough results, an expert on branding and retail and passionate, provocative speaker that can energize any forum, anytime.

Another strength I have is my diversity of experience. Some of those areas are:

    • Household Cleaning, Air Care, Pest Control (SC Johnson in other words)
    • Technology and Telecom (I think I am quite good at this!)
    • Beverages (PepsiCo, Lipton)
    • Food & Snacks ( Nestle, Frito-Lays, Unilever many more!)
    • Automotive & Aviation  (VW, Hyundai, Daihatsu, Emirates)

What do I suck at?

This is another area that has largely evolved over the course of my career. You would expect by this time one would probably get good at those things one is bad at. I realized I suck at even bigger things now! One of them is politics. Call me a simpleton when it comes to navigating agendas but the truth is I simply can’t handle it rather I choose not to handle it! In fact I am happy sucking at it!
