The next step

I have spent the past few months contemplating on what the next step of my career should be. After almost 8 years at Google, the only gig that would make sense is one with a overwhelming sense of potential, of impact that could span billions and move countries. 

I am moving to India for the next few years to help build Flipkart into a world class product and engineering company in the capacity of their Chief Product Officer. As I explored ideas across sectors and across different life stages of companies, I flew down to India to personally see the change spreading across the country at the intersection of a mobile revolution spearheaded by phones like Moto G, and hundreds of entrepreneurs reinventing every aspect of life out there. Flipkart stood out as the single biggest platform of change in the new internet economy. 

The energy in Bangalore feels like the Valley and Flipkart with a footprint of millions is at the forefront. It is the opportunity to create the biggest impact and made sense after the amazing journey at Google. 

My goal and mandate will be to help build the world’s best product company with a global ambition. Over time, we will build programs to attract the best talent to Bangalore and also establish a significant presence back home in the Valley. The overwhelming scope of the task feels like the right next step in my journey, and its success will depend on a lot of things including your support.

Thanks to all the amazing people who mentored me through this process. Onwards to the next step!

Introduction
Hi, am a Consultant and specialise in social media for HR

Earlier, I was working in HR at Philips India and before that was marketing lead for BraveNewTalent, which organizations use to create talent communities. 
I have been a blogger on business,organizational and work related issues since 2002. 

I've given talks on “Blogging for Business” at a couple of organizations. I'm frequently quoted in the press as an authority on business blogging. If you want to interview me or want to invite to speak at a conference, tweet to me, e-mail or call me at +91-98731-41236

My blog has been listed by HRWorld amongst the top 25 HR blogs worldwide and also amongst the Career 100 - a list of the top 100 career related blogs globally in the English language. Recently it was listed by EvanCarmichael as one of the 50 HR blogs to watch in 2009. 

The blog is also featured on the Corporate Social Media on AlltopAlltop HR,  Alltop Careers and Alltop India categories. It has also been featured earlier as a case study in the book Business Blogs: A Practical Guide.

I have work primarily in the learning and organization development domain of Human Resources. My detailed professional profile can be found here. Also take a look at what ex-bosses, colleagues, friends and blog readers think about my work.

Have worked for IT organizations like Dell, Deloitte, HP, Satyam and Qontext (subsidiary of Pramati Technologies)
