I’m an independent learning and development consultant based in Mumbai. I aim to inspire people to be their best (at work and outside) by giving them great and meaningful learning experiences. I do this by partnering with them through coaching and training. I work globally.

Through my communication skills training programs I help participants to work effectively with their colleagues and clients around the world. As an organisational coach (ICF Associate Certified Coach) I help my counterparts achieve their full potential. 

My clients include global investment banks, conglomerates, pharmaceutical companies, professional services firms, branding agencies, risk consultancies, think tanks and not-for-profits.

I’ve lived in India since 2017. Previously, I was in Hong Kong for four years where I worked for Manulife, coordinating their pan-Asia communications strategy.

Before Asia, I was based in Dubai as a correspondent for Reuters covering business and politics across the Middle East. Assignments took me to Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Sudan. I moved on to join the regional communications team at General Motors Middle East.

I speak good Arabic, reasonable French, and can get by in Hindi. I studied Arabic with Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies at university and spent a year of my course at a language school in Yemen.

Outside work, my passion is traveling and I love mountain trekking. I’m a big foodie, avid reader and keen sportsman. I regularly play cricket, football, touch rugby and I’m a keen runner. In 2023, I ran the Ladakh marathon, one of the highest in the world at 3,500m altitude.
