Well, we all have been confused at one point or the other, when it comes to making career choices. A commerce student, our guest today was, in his own words, an average student at school. The freedom from his parents, of making his own choices and paving his own path, shaped him as an individual. Like any other commerce student, he had applied for the CA exam but ended up with the realisation that he did not like it. As a football enthusiast, he wanted to pursue the sport full-time but unfortunately, things didn’t turn out as planned.
Anand Sinha went on to pursue his graduation from Christ University, Bangalore. He gives us a gist of life in Bangalore in this candid chat.
Previously a National Sales Head of Zomato, he eventually started his own.
His company, Pressplay, a media-tech startup didn’t go very far but it did get 1 MN+ app downloads and 100+ content partners on board. He shares the experience of rejoining Zomato and becoming the Global Head of Zomato Gold. In the quest for his calling, however, he further went on to build Leapclub, a powerful, private network for women leaders that changed the game.
Anand shares with us impactful insights and the journey of building this professional network of women role models.
Let’s hear it from him in this intuitive conversation.
