Hello Everyone! Great to be a part of this collaborative community of great mentors with vast experience! Originally from India, I've been in Ireland for ~19 years now - currently working in Ericsson as Project / Engineering Manager. I have done various leadership roles in Toastmasters International including being the President of Athlone club and Area 9 Director (which has 5 clubs). What I enjoy is helping people to find their best self through which they can give their best. There's nothing more enjoyable than seeing the progress that people make to become leaders, and, of course, leading without a title (when needed !)
