I have always enjoyed analyzing things and using unique approaches to solve challenges, and I think that’s how I got into analytics! I started my career as a Finance Professional with a global conglomerate and have worked with brands like GE, Hutch/Tech Mahindra & JP Morgan. I am currently working with SBI Mutual Funds.
In 15 years of my career, I’ve dealt with multiple challenges in MIS reporting, automation, and Business Intelligence tools implementation but each difficulty has been a learning experience, and I’m always excited when I land a new project because it comes with its own set of challenges.
I believe that analytics is a fast-moving domain, and while I’m keen to create more awareness about analytics and how it can solve varying business problems, I like to focus on short term goals and strategies. I’m now keen to understand how I can combine AI and analytics.
There’s this quote that really drives me by John Wooden: If you are afraid to fail, you will never do the things, you are capable of doing. I feel that failure is part and parcel of life, and we have to learn from it continually and move forward. My life has taught me to never stop learning and to always look for creative solutions to any problems because there are many views to the same problem.
Not many know this, but I belong to a small town from Rajasthan, and I’m the first person in the family to have stepped out of the family business to work for an MNC.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my kids or listening to music.
I aspire to create a difference in the education space as I feel that as a country, there is so much room for development there.
