I have been involved in designing, developing, and conducting ‘on the job’ skills training and coaching workshops for apparel manufacturing and sourcing organizations since 2008. I bring the ‘industry insider’ perspective to the training interventions I create and deliver, thus making the experience more relevant and effective for my clients and trainees. I conducted workshops for companies like Texport Garments, Raymond Ever Blue Denim, Golden Seam Textiles, L M Sagar Exports in Bangalore, Hirdramani Industries in Colombo, Radnik Exports, Orient Fashions, Saivana Exports, Genus Apparel in Delhi, for international brands’ buying and sourcing offices like J C Penney Purchasing Corporation and Dollar General Liaison office in Delhi and for non-profit organizations like OGTC (Okhla Garment and Textile Cluster) in Delhi.
I was invited as a speaker to deliver sessions on ‘Skills Up-gradation for apparel merchandisers’ at International Conference for Apparel and Home Textiles (ICAHT) held at IHC, New Delhi, which was well received.
I worked as a trainer and consultant for Textile and Fashion Industry Training Centre in Singapore where I revamped their training contents on Global Sourcing, Production Tracking using Critical Path Method, Team Work in Workplace modules. I was also involved in developing training and assessment on Apparel Costing for senior executives at Li and Fung.
Prior to my journey as a trainer/facilitator, I gained a deep understanding of the Global Fashion Industry from my 10+ years of a corporate stint with Industry leaders like Li and Fung, Tommy Hilfiger India, J C Penney Purchasing Corporation, TCNS, and Pearl Global.
