I founded BlueTiger in March 2011 after working for over 25 years in various capacities across different industries/ countries in start-up, SME and large corporations. Before that I worked with MphasiS Limited as Vice President, where I was heading a 4500+ people Project, and left them to pursue my passion for Training, Coaching & Mentoring.
I have unmatched depth & width of experience in career & life. I had a humble beginning, born in a well-educated family from tiny village, studied in vernacular language in the village and nearby small town, started with a tiny salary of $ 8/month to finish off corporate life as the Vice President of MphasiS, an HP Company, which is one of the largest IT Corporation in India. Like many, I encountered many failures, humiliations, success, achievements, unprecedented performances, faced unbelievable situations in multiple industries, departments across multiple countries in my 28 years of illustrious professional life to make me a solid, sober, mature, cool headed & a Positive person with great values and have made a brand of my own.
