Even Ants Are Busy
Busyness Or Business.Busyness does not mean business. This is as simple as it gets. Just because I am seen to be busy does not bring business. Even ants are busy. What am I busy with? I need to learn to prioritise. Prioritise, make a list of the things which are important before they become urgent and then everything becomes urgent and focus on getting them completed.I left a high profile corporate career on a high because I felt I wasn't adding ...

Supply Chain is not just about trucks and warehouses. It is about the end to end processes. It is about cash to cash. It is the business.

Work
Occupation
I have an extensive background in Retail Supply Chain, with a vast amount of experience. My goal is to leverage my knowledge to help you achieve your aims. I am passionate about enabling my clients to harness the Retail Revolution by bringing in efficiencies and increasing dollars to the bottom line. During the course of my career, I have completely transformed supply chain from weak link to core strength, thereby saving millions of dollars for the company, while hugely increasing profit. Think of me as an architect of supply chain, helping you to design the best approach for you and your business. I am equipped with a unique perspective and knowledge in the field, having experience in all three areas: Store operations, stores, front and back of shops. Merchandise planning, buying for many years across multiple categories, and hence achieving a full understanding of the complexities involved. Finally, experience in setting up Distribution Centres, overseas hubs, work with unions, transport management, air and sea freight. I can help retailers see the bigger picture, through imparting knowledge, strategies, and solutions for strengthening their Supply Chain structure. The problem that many retailers fail to see is that Supply Chain is the end-to-end process and not simply Logistics –the middle part of “Buy-Move-Sell” i.e., Move. However, the end-to-end process is all about integration. The point is to work with retailers to increase bottom line profit by streamlining their supply chain and making it World Class.

Story
Introduction

Until August 2011, I was the Director of Logistics for Myer Pty Ltd., where I worked for more than fifteen years. I hold a leading track record in merchandise planning, buying, product development, supply chain, and implementing turnkey solutions to complex enterprise problems in the retail sector. Additionally, I am MBA qualified, hold a BSc and several diplomas, and speak six languages.

Having departed Myer on my own entrepreneurial adventures, I am now a sought after mentor, executive business coach, retail supply chain expert, and an inspirational keynote speaker. Additionally, I am an accomplished business advisor, an Accredited Thought Leader, a Director and Investor at Shooii and Non Executive Director at OKMe.

I am in the process of sharing my wisdom in the writing of several books, including; my memoir – Driven: From Mumbai to Myer, a business book – Harnessing the Retail Revolution, and a close look at some of the worlds most successful business leaders and mentors, and the tactics and leadership characteristics that have put them where they are today.


Bragging rights
I originally come from a successful hospitality background in India, having been a food and beverage manager for the Taj Hotel Group. I learnt how to adapt my extensive experience in hospitality to instigate a highly successful corporate career. I am driven to help others, like me, in extending their capabilities, escalating their careers, and expanding their horizons. Within a very short time frame after moving to Australia, I was able to move from a food and beverage environment, to a general manager position within Myer Pty Ltd. Being mentored was paramount in my ability to go so far, but consider me not only as your astute mentor, but as your journey planner along the corporate freeways. My experience entails arriving in Australia with just a borrowed $500 in my pocket, and although I had an excellent reputation and experience in India, it did not mean so much here at the time. I had only limited resources, and yet, I was able to go all the way. Subsequently, I have unequalled knowledge, understanding, perception, and insight of what it takes to move ahead in a career in a corporate environment. Individuals will benefit from my personal career mentoring, knowledge sharing, and input in assisting them to achieve their goals and ambitions. With discussion to address your unique requirements, I will tailor-design a mentoring program unique to you. Too often, advisers don’t address the specific needs and issues of an individual and instead use a blanket solution, which just doesn’t work for everyone, and can be shortsighted in that it doesn’t look at the long-term, bigger picture. My aim is not only to help you with your current career – but also to assist and recommend with regards to career transitions both up the corporate ladder, between vocations, and also from intrepreneur to entrepreneur, and finally, infopreneur.
