I have had the good fortune of professional engagements with her, where her precise nature of questioning and my honest, and sometimes cautious answers, were able to bring to the fore the root cause of my issues at work. Shweta's recommendations have always been specific, result oriented and very practical. She has this amazing sense of seeing how a situation will unfold if not handled correctly and what the consequences of inaction or procrastination will be.

I absolutely loved our 2 day training with Shweta and specifically enjoyed how she busts all kinds of stereotypes - the things we second guess or worse, take for granted. Her intuition is acute and knowledge about business and leadership very sharp. I have hugely benefited from working with her and would recommend her highly not just for ones own self but also in bringing teams up to speed on self awareness and the nuances of working with others in an increasingly collaborative environment. I hope to work with you more in the future. All the very best, and thank you!" ~Tanvi Jain, Head - iContract

"Like every player hits a rough patch in their game, so does every person in the game called life. At that defining moment, a coach can sail you through. For some, family or friends play that role. For me it was Shweta. I wonder how, but she always has that perfect thing to say to motivate you in every situation, professional and personal, a quality I even look up to. For example: One of the many things she said to me was that "it is more important to make the best of your choice, than to make the best choice", a simple statement that forever forward solved the most excruciating dilemma of my life. Add to that wisdom a rock-solid industry knowledge and experience, and you have a guide you can rely upon for dependable and practical advice every time. Thanks to Shweta, I am now full of clarity, and focused on a career path towards a well-defined goal. Wishing her all the best!" ~ Saurabh Gupta, Director – Share India Securities
