I have worked with ICICI - JP Morgan JV and DSP Merrill Lynch for 14 years in investment banking department and
then completed Dale Carnegie Train the Trainer Certification and British Council’s IELTS Train the Trainer Course.
Founded BM English Speaking Institute Pvt in February 2004, with a vision to train 1 crore Indians in English fluency.
I worked with leading investment banks for 14 years – JP Morning & Merrill Lynch associates and
English & Communication played a major role in career growth. I realized that technical skills are helpful only in the first 2 to 3 years.
Especially, for ambitious professionals – who want to grow in the corporate workspace, English plays an extremely important role.
Be it meetings, presentations, conference calls, emails or report writing.
English gives us an edge.
Its because of my team! We have a strong 55-member team of which 40 are senior corporate trainers.
Moreover, with the help of my team, we have developed a English learning system.
There are standard processes for everything – teaching English, evaluation at each stage, training of trainers and so on.
Since the processes are documented and my team follows that, I am able to work on new initiatives that help ambitious professionals.
One of the major challenge we face is generating new customers almost on a daily basis.
This is because, once a person learns to speak English fluently in 3 months, she / he will never come back.
This problem forced or you can say pushed me to learn Digital Marketing.
This has helped us generate thousands of leads month after month.
My team and me, all of us are focused on results. We work such that our participants achieve fluency in English in three months time.
In order to achieve this, we train all English learners using activities, games, competitions, group discussions, debates.
Since all of our learners longingly participate in activities and the trainer intervenes them to correct them and
followed by tips on how to improve that aspect. This gives our learners first hand experience of their mistakes, proper guidance to improve and
the required confidence.
My mother is my first inspiration. She is a speaks very less but is very strong mentally.
I learnt to develop a strong will power from her. My dad, who passed away, when I was 19 had leadership qualities.
My younger sister Maya has been with me in this journey since we established. She has taken charge of business profitability, human resources and
corporate business. Some of my best friends Ashish Patel, Vijay Pathak, Haresh Kodnani and Dr Rajesh Kukjreja have been friends, philosophers and guide.
Dale Carnegie published some bestselling books on public speaking many decades back.
The Dale Carnegie Train the Trainer course helped me understand the nuances of being a corporate trainer –
I learnt about Training Need Analysis, Return on Training Investment, role of interactions and games in training from the Dale Carnegie institute.
My purpose motivates me which is “We help ambitious professionals grow their income by developing their communication skills”.
I feel English training industry lacks highest standards in training.
Given an opportunity, I would like to work with the best in industry to set standard operating procedures for conducting English Communication
