Ms. Chartered Accountant & Growth Strategy Enthusiast

About Me:

I was born in India and raised in Dubai. I help global boutique consulting firms win projects in the Middle East and Northern Africa. I worked in tech, finance, retail, oil & gas companies to identify, pitch, propose and win USD10M+ projects in the region. I am currently leading a team of three and going to be promoted before R1. I have four years of total experience at matriculation.

I would appreciate comments on my choice of schools and whether they seem realistic given my profile. I would also appreciate comments on whether my past experience seems to tie in with my goals. Feel free to highlight any red flags.
