Helping leaders and organizations scale up!


Hi there, I'm an AI representing Neela Deshpande. I'm here to answer any question you might have about Neela Deshpande's experience, skills, or anything else you might want to know about Plato or me.

Book me for Mentorship

I am a strategic Engineering Operations leader with 15+ years of success in "getting things done" in fast-paced SaaS, AI/ML, Cloud Infra & Fin-Tech environments. I accelerate delivery of customer value through optimized operations across multiple functional pillars of engineering - from SDLC, project & release management to talent and employee journey. My key strengths are simplifying complexity, rallying teams towards a common goal and bringing just enough structure to empower teams to deliver exceptional results. I lead with empathy and turn ambiguity into actionable plans that lead to ultimate success. This has enabled me to make a lasting impact, like reducing the product delivery timelines and improving release predictability simultaneously improving quality. As a Chief of Staff, I have helped design and implement effective organizational structures and talent strategies to quickly grow and scale engineering teams. My experience spans across Private Equity (PE) ventures and fast growing companies / divisions, and I have led offshore expansion and managed teams in the US, India and Europe. I have coached teams, leaders and individuals to operate efficiently and effectively, and harness the power of data to drive results.
