I worked in ops, strategy & business development at Schlumberger in my early career. I was there for 6 years, and since then I have been a director running our family business in Hyderabad - an emerging school in South India called Presidency High School.
I started my career as a product manager, so I wasn't managing teams but I had to influence and work closely with them. This was my first 4 years. And then I went to a startup, joined as head of product and pretty much built the team over there.
Well, my leadership journey started when I was 24 years young. I was given an opportunity to kick start the talent acquisition unit within Blume Ventures, which is a venture capital firm. We help all portfolio companies with their recruitment requirements!
