Management Consultant, GRC Champion and an Ethics Handyman!

I am a passionate management consultant who thrives on the ability to connect an organization’s vision and strategy and utilize them to enhance a fit-for-purpose organizational culture.

My competence lies in solving governance, risk and compliance (GRC) challenges; I have done this for several years for global organizations in India, the UK, and the US. In all my years, the most important lesson I’ve learnt is that all organizations can and should strive to align their people, their policies and their procedures to their overall vision and strategy! I am certain that the more you explore the intersectionality of human and organizational behaviour, the more you’d be able to realize optimum success.
