Lived experience combined with nearly two decades of professional HR expertise helps me deliver creative, culturally intelligent and practical solutions.
Supporting institutions and communities with resolutions to their Inclusion & People Management challenges is my passion. Read on and find out how you get more value for money by working with me and Ardhica.
Born in India, Growing up - living and working in Dubai/ India, educated in both Dubai and the UK and now working and living in England gives me quite a unique perspective that can help leaders and organisations in equally unique ways.
