I am an entrepreneur and business professional with 8 years experience in the corporate world. I am the founder of Chitchat (www.chitchatwith.me), providing professional English training courses to international executives and students who are aspiring towards a better career by improving their business English skills.
I received my MBA degree specializing in International Management and Marketing from Arizona and have lived and worked in 3 countries - India, Singapore and USA. I have worked as a Brand Consultant for Interbrand in Singapore. I have run my own business in high-end luxury jewelry, manufacturing and exporting products to large corporate clients in various countries.
Having been in charge of supervising all departments within a company - human resources and employee training, finance and accounting, marketing and new product development, client management and business development, I have gained invaluable experience and exposure doing business in many countries. It is this real-life experience, coupled with my in-depth insights on communication best-practices and nuances of culture that I pass on to my students to help them succeed at their jobs.
I have been teaching Business English to foreign students and foreign business professionals online through Skype. I also conduct weekly workshops to small groups of students on various Business English topics in San Francisco. (http://www.meetup.com/ESL-Workshops/). Teaching Business English has become a passion for me and I find it extremely rewarding. The joy it brings when one of my students lands an awesome job or a professional makes a great presentation to his/her clients is beyond comparison.
