Essentials for a business meeting.
My day at work is filled with consecutive meetings with business clients / vendors and internal teams, it is imperative for one to be prepared for a meeting and my meeting essential is a pre-read of the agenda and the background of the client while focusing on the objective and outcome I want to derive out of it. I never attend a meeting without my notebook.
Your everyday guide to stay fit & healthy.
Dancing is the biggest stress buster although my travel does not leave me much time to work out in the gym; but I do my bit in the hotel or at home whenever I have the time. I spend an hour-and-a-half, over weekend at the dance studio to build strength and core muscles along with having fun. As far as my diet goes, being a Punjabi I am a foodie and eat everything I fancy eating through the day and make up for it by dancing my way to health! The need to be fit is imperative for a professional.
What is your power dressing mantra?
Comfort is critical to confidence, so i never compromise on it. I try to sync my dressing with the corporate culture at my workplace; while black, white, navy, and grey are my BFFs as they never go wrong I also have a dash of colour in my wardrobe in peaches, mauves and fawns.
A well-tailored pair of black pants, a black blazer, and a crisp white Oxford shirt is the best bet through the best and worst of days.
One thing that one will find on your work desk
My coffee mug, notebook and my pen will always be found on my work desk; my day at work begins with a mug of steaming cappuccino while I plan my list of to dos to conquer it!
One gadget that you cannot do without @work
My day is incomplete without my mobile phone as it runs my schedule and business over emails and helps me stay connected.
