Rural Management Consultant Pvt.Ltd, Alma Mater Matters Pvt Ltd
Founded executive search company exclusively for Foods and Agriculture. Started in 2001 for unemployed youth and graduated to handle only senior management and leadership roles. Between education in Agriculture in 1984 and today, I have heard everyday two comments, a) Agriculture is a sleeping giant and b) this sector is slated to have explosive growth soon. However, all these years status of Agriculture sector did not change from 'about to take off' to 'take off' stage. At the age of 52 years now, I have started to gather some confidence to appreciate whys and hows of this riddle, to realise the sub domains where we are actually prepared to move on and ones where only positive attitude will support the pitch of the speaker.
