“For a completely non-corporate person, I was a bit daunted to be around people who have spent years in boardrooms. This turned out to be an amazing experience for me. Learning new tech skills, making ppts, articulating my ideas and working in a team made me confident. The SVP team in Bangalore has been very encouraging and empowering. Sensing my passion in waste management, the Bangalore chapter decided to make this a new focus. Swacha Belaku couldn’t have happened in any other set up.”
