“Life can only be understood backwards;
but it must be lived forwards.” ― Søren Kierkegaard
I am passionate about structuring & syntheses and you will often find me practicing my skills of listening and storytelling - in that order. I believe in the “Less is More” philosophy and consider simplicity as a driving principle in doing any work. I am currently experimenting with data visualization, teaching, djembe, freelance consulting, coding, and cooking in a tandoor. When not playing with my computer or reading a book, you will find me working with my son - Siddharth - to learn new skills.
I used to work as a management consultant for nine years - first with AT Kearney in India and then with Booz & Company, now Strategy& in Europe. I am now an independent strategy consultant working or not working on my own terms. I also completed my undergraduate B. Tech degree from IIT Delhi and a PGDM from IIM Ahmedabad.
I now write, teach and consult on a number of topics which are of current interest to me. These include (but not limited to):
- Teaching data visualisation, data science and data-stories
- Speaking with stories, presenting with impact
- Strategy for companies and start-ups
Even so, my primary work is to stay curious about new things, projects and opportunities. To enjoy the journey of learning new things as they unfold.
Do you want to work with me. Excellent. Why don’t you drop an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at +91 9739 268 197 or tweet me at @amitkaps to let me know more about the nature of the opportunity. I would be more than happy to give it my full attention.
