Having spent 19 years with Capgemini, I had the opportunity to leverage my Program Management skills and Strong Quality background to deliver superior efficiency as well as helped stakeholders in meeting their priorities.

Through a people-focused and results-oriented approach, I along with my team implemented and delivered multiple initiatives to build a KM culture and portal which tangibly benefited several stakeholders and clients and helped them derive more value.

I am known for conceptualization and implementing large programs and initiatives where one has to exhibit Collaboration, Creativity, Design thinking, Networking, and Program Management.

Some of my achievements include-
•Featured as the most admirable women leader in the area of Knowledge Management for consecutive 2 years.
