Hi,

I am Kishor Bagal. I joined Persona Academy in May 2016. I am  working in the investment banking field since the past 4 years. My career growth was slow because I was shy and an  introvert at the workplace. After attending one to one lectures with Rajashree Ma’ am, I realized my drawbacks.  I  started working on those areas as per the guidance of Rajashree  Ma’am & Dinesh Sir and it  started showing positive results .

The debating sessions have helped me a lot to speak confidently in public. I have given impressive presentations to my office colleagues and received appreciation for my work from my boss after joining the course.

While doing the course, I was asked to attend an  interview at Nomura Services India Pvt Ltd.  I  consulted Rajashree Ma’am; and she  helped me a lot to prepare for interview . It resulted in my clearing  all the three rounds of the selection process and I got an  offer letter with hike of 35% on my current package and also a much better job profile. The learning at  Persona Academy  is also  helping me a lot in my day to day working. Thanks to Rajashree Ma’am and Dinesh Sir for creating a great change in me.

 Group Discussion Skills

Welcome to our Sunday GD & Debating club !

Testimonial from a Specialist -  Senior Chartered Accountant from Mumbai -Senior Management Leadership Training 

 Hi,


I am Afaque Usman Katil, working as a design engineer in a well known company in U.A.E., manufacturing state-of-the-art armored  vehicles for various armies around the world . I traveled to Thane  for the specialized course in "Persona for Engineers'', and it was a great experience for me to learn many aspects of personality development and soft skills, presentation skills,  group discussions and debating in a very effective manner.  


I also learned to coordinate meetings like kick-off meetings, engage in arguments and negotiations, compere office programmes, and present to teams of clients- all with the unique techniques Mr. Dinesh has skillfully developed from his personal experiences.


I highly recommend this course to all engineers and also others who wish to improve their personalities, soft skills and critical thinking in an accelerated mode of learning. The skills that I learned are highly effective in the modern office environment, specially for engineers aiming at top techno-managerial positions.

Here's what another old acquaintance has to say.....  


"I know Mr. Dinesh since 2000 (  for more than 15 years  ).We worked in the same company in the UAE, where I was a production ceramist in a large manufacturing plant producing ceramic & porcelain tiles. I was doing well for myself, but one day Mr. Dinesh, after interacting with me for a few months  & knowing my problems at work & after gauging my personal skills, advised me seriously to move into sales & marketing. I did that soon, and that advise has proved so beneficial to me that now I am at the top position ( General Manager ) in a large multinational group in the Sultanate of Oman in just about 10 years of joining the company. The career advise was fantastic and it came at a right time for me. Mr. Dinesh has a great knack for understanding a person very quickly and his advise for your  career enhancement is just fantastic"

Hi,


I am Ankit Agarwal from Kalyan. I hail from  a  struggling  middle class family and my father works as a salesman  in a shop. When I & my father first met Dinesh Sir and Rajashree Ma’am after finishing my B.Com , I never thought that Persona Academy will bring a huge change in my life in just about 2 months.


All through my school and college days, I struggled to speak in English, and couldn’t make friends with those who spoke good English.  I always kept away from an English speaking crowd. Not only I had great problems with the language, but I had a number of inhibitions . I also wondered what my future will be.


Within 2 months time of joining Persona Academy, that was history. I not only overcame all my problems, but I got 3 jobs within 2 months of joining the course , all in multinational BPO/ bank related voice processes. I took a job finally in a very well known ITES company. Out of 43 persons I was the only one to be shortlisted for a final round. For me Rajashree Ma’am and Dinesh Sir are the most wonderful people on earth.  They did a number of exercises on a 1 on 1 basis and in groups  to change my personality, improve my soft skills and of course my English.


​Thank You Sir & Ma'am. I am most grateful to you.

Get trained by experts who have  worked  at VP & GM levels and  have cumulative experience of 45 years in multiple domains.

I want to tell every young person who is interested in developing his or her personality,  to simply enrol  in  Dinesh Sir & Rajashree Ma’am’s Persona Academy. They can work wonders on anyone.  I am highly indebted to them for helping me get confirmation in my job after excelling in a grilling  interview by my employers  ( a multinational BPO )  . Sir & Ma'am  improved  my spoken English Skills, Interview Skills, GD skills & Presentation Skills  tremendously in a short time. I saw a huge change in myself in just 1-2 months and I made an impressive presentation to my bosses and colleagues in office, very soon after joining the course.  Today I am a confirmed employee of a large BPO and I can speak well,  excel in interpersonal relations and I can handle any client worldwide, or any office situation confidently……and believe me, I am from a vernacular (medium) school.

Here's what an old acquaintance has to say.....  


"I am Fanny Alcocer Nunez, now settled in  Rome, Italy. I worked with Dinesh for more than 6 years in RAK Ceramics UAE, where I was the Chief Architect & Designer, and I directly reported to him when he was the AGM / GM (Marketing) . 


He could be one of the best guys that I ever worked with in my career spanning 30 years within Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. He knit a fantastic team of managers, staff & workers and we executed many deadline oriented projects in several countries including high profile, large sized exhibitions in the ceramic industry. I found  his leadership skills, communication skills and his ability to get diverse people from different nationalities to work together  

amazing !  Knowing his abilities, I am

not at all surprised  that he has been

so successful in running such an

institute.


All the best to Persona Academy !"

                                          Article in Forbes magazine by Keld Jensen....... 


                                        Intelligence Is Overrated: What Do You Really Need To Succeed.......


Albert Einstein's was estimated at 160, Madonna’s is 140, and John F. Kennedy's was only 119, but as it turns out, your IQ score pales in comparison with your EQ, MQ, and BQ scores when it comes to predicting your success and professional achievement.  IQ tests are used as an indicator of logical reasoning ability and technical intelligence. A high IQ is often a prerequisite for rising to the top ranks of business today. It is necessary, but it is not adequate to predict executive competence and corporate success. By itself, a high IQ does not guarantee that you will stand out and rise above everyone else.


Research carried out by the  
Carnegie Institute of Technology shows that 85 percent of your financial success is due to skills in “human engineering,” your personality and ability to communicate, negotiate, and lead. Shockingly, only 15 percent is due to technical knowledge. Additionally, Nobel Prize winning Israeli-American psychologist, Daniel Kahneman, found that people would rather do business with a person they like and trust rather than someone they don’t, even if the likable person is offering a lower quality product or service at a higher price.


With this in mind, instead of exclusively focusing on your conventional intelligence quotient,
you should make an investment in strengthening your EQ (Emotional Intelligence), MQ (Moral Intelligence), and BQ (Body Intelligence). These concepts may be elusive and difficult to measure, but their significance is far greater than IQ.


Emotional Intelligence:


EQ is the most well known of the three, and in brief, it is about: being aware of your own feelings and those of others, regulating these feelings in yourself and others, using emotions that are appropriate to the situation, self-motivation,  and building relationships.

Moral Intelligence:


MQ directly follows EQ as it deals with your integrity, responsibility, sympathy, and forgiveness. The way you treat yourself is the way other people will treat you. Keeping commitments, maintaining your integrity, and being honest are crucial to moral intelligence.


Body Intelligence:


Lastly, there is your BQ, or body intelligence, which reflects what you know about your body, how you feel about it, and take care of it. Your body is constantly telling you things; are you listening to the signals or ignoring them? Are you eating energy-giving or energy-draining foods on a daily basis? Are you getting enough rest? Do you exercise and take care of your body? It may seem like these matters are unrelated to business performance, but your body intelligence absolutely affects your work because it largely determines your feelings, thoughts, self-confidence, state of mind, and energy level.

What You Really Need To Succeed:


It doesn’t matter if you did not receive the best academic training from a top university. A person with less education who has fully developed their EQ, MQ, and BQ can be far more successful than a person with an impressive education who falls short in these other categories.  Yes, it is certainly good to be an intelligent, rational thinker and have a high IQ; this is an important asset. But you must realize that it is not enough. Your IQ will help you personally, but EQ, MQ, and BQ will benefit everyone around you as well. If you can master the complexities of these unique and often under-rated forms of intelligence, research tells us you will achieve greater success and be regarded as more professionally competent and capable.


​    We were covered by Times of India on December 24, 2017 as top trainers in personality development & public speaking 

Hi,

I am Amar Dalvi, and I am a Chemical Engineer working for a very reputed and well known company in Mumbai at a senior managerial level. I had a lot of issues with my personality and one of them was fear of speaking in public. By the time I had finished half the course at Persona Academy, most of my issues were resolved. One day, suddenly I was sent as a replacement speaker by my company at a  conference  on safety in Chennai. To my own surprise and my delight I spoke with great confidence  in front of 300 important delegates and received an applause at the end. I give full credit to Persona Academy for changing me so quickly.

Hi,


I am Damini Choudhari.  I joined Persona Academy in May 2016. It was a life changing experience for me.  I have realized my full potential and have developed terrific confidence. The personalized training did all the wonders. A lot of effort was made for me and is made for all the students. When I completed the course, I was selected as the main  Anchor for the student festival of my college in Thane.  I also was selected to intern with SAAM Marathi channel as Anchor. Recently I have acted in 2 Marathi serials- "Anjali'' on Zee Yuva and ''Choti Malkin'' on Star Pravah.  My heartfelt thanks to my mentors- Dinesh Sir & Rajashree Ma'am.  Rajashree Ma'am is like another Mom for me.

Hi,


I am Pankaj Mishra and I am a Chartered Accountant. The profession of Chartered Accountancy is known for its rigorous  & comprehensive curriculum in the domain of finance which has made it one of the most sought-after career choice. Role of a CA varies from that of an auditor to an investment banker, a fund manager, a risk assessor  /manager or a financial controller. These roles need a very high standard of technical skills as well as soft skills.  
 
Today's corporate world needs polished soft skills which include critical thinking, debating and negotiation techniques, presentation skills, public speaking, collaboration & influencing techniques etc.  
 
The CA curriculum & training provides the requisite technical expertise but one needs to develop other skills too to succeed in today's corporate world. 
 
I have always tried to develop these skills but I needed a good trained & experienced professional to help me. It is said that learning should never stop and I found Persona Academy on the internet & thought it suitable to enhance my skills set.  
 
My learning at Persona Academy has been simply a great experience & I started seeing improvement in the way I spoke at meetings or at any public speaking forum.  
 
Mr. Bandiwadekar had been at senior positions in the corporate world in India and abroad and his experience helped me extensively to hone my skills set. 
 
I would strongly recommend any Chartered Accountant and students of Chartered Accountancy to visit Persona  Academy and go through the tailor-made courses for enhancing soft skills and for developing their personalities.


Thanks to Persona Academy !!

Hi,

I am Dr. Shraddha Kode, a dentist by profession.

Till I completed my BDS, I was a shy person with a lot of stage fear, fear of speaking in public and fear of group discussions. My  first memory of public speaking is that of a “shloka competition” in school wherein I ran away to escape from the stage. Next, in my  elocution competition I just rushed through my topic. That fear was inbuilt in me for long. Even during graduation days -though I did well in academics-  when it came to clearing the viva’s, I used to be left with no words to express myself. After my graduation, I decided to go to Persona Academy. That day onwards, my life has changed. It has brought about a revolutionary change in my life. Ma'am and Sir found out where I lack and decided to work on it.

 

All thanks to Persona Academy that I now participate in competitions without anybody forcing me into it ! Immediately after my course, I have participated in a number of medical conferences where I have presented to audiences.

Hi,


I am Aishwarya Kolte. I joined Persona Academy in April 2016 and that was perhaps the best thing I did in my life. It has changed me a lot inside out, and  from being a  shy & introverted girl into someone who can now participate in several social activities and can easily address a gathering of people. The confidence gained by me, thanks to Dinesh Sir & Rajashree Ma'am,  made me contest and win the post of Secretary for the year 2016-17 of the Rotaract Club of Dombivli Industrial Area -Rainbow. My heartfelt thanks to my mentors.
