Pravin Sathe:

With over 25 years of experience in various sectors, roles and hierarchies, as the lead consultant at Elixir Communications, Pravin uses the experience he gained therein to design the best customised interventions possible for the specific assignment. He strives to bring a balanced and holistic approach to all issues, which he believes is easier for him having alternated on both sides of the table and due to the diverse roles he has played in various sectors and organisations so far.

After associating with a leading US based Training organisation with worldwide presence, he decided to make people development as his main focus and started Elixir Communications in 2003. He hopes to remain an humble student forever and firmly believes in the adage “when you train or teach, you yourself learn twice”.
