Being recognized as a ET Young Leader has considerably strengthened my brand and that is a huge boost to my career in itself. On the personal front it has added to my experience, my confidence, and has definitely given me a lot more exposure both within and outside the organisation. The opportunity to interact with corporate leaders in India, both during the interviews as well as in the final event, was an immense learning opportunity.

Winning the Economic Times Young Leaders (ETYL) Award has been an important milestone and has given a huge boost to my career. It was an interesting and learning experience to interact with peers and leaders of corporate India. The entire selection process was highly rigorous and helped me introspect about my strengths and weaknesses.

The assessments conducted through questionnaires, group discussions and case studies, as well as the feedback from these sessions was extremely useful and informative. The CEO interaction was also a tremendous learning experience.

The ETYL journey was an immensely enriching experience - from sharing space with talented individuals across industries, to interacting with eminent business leaders. On the personal front, the most important learning has been the role of passion and patience in ensuring one's success in the long term. The exposure provided by ET Young Leaders both in terms of personal & professional development cannot be substituted in any form.
