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 !!
