Training Programmes and Invited Talks

Training working managers and senior executives are an integral part of development of skills and sensitization on key critical issues. This directly contributes to the enhancement of performance in specific roles and awareness of challenges. These executive education programmes gear up the participants to deliver in their existing roles or take up new roles by infusing their domain knowledge with a fresh perspective on best practices, theories  and cases followed globally. Following are some of the MDPs/FDPs/Invited Talks which have been delivered/coordinated by me, along with the content/focus of these programmes/sessions.
