“If the universe gives you a chance that sets your heart racing then the wisest thing to do is to make it your choice!”
No one lives up to this line more than Gaurav! Having done his schooling in science and graduating with an honors degree in mathematics, sales and marketing was the last place that anyone thought he would land into.
Gaurav has been a part of the big bad corporate world for the last 12 years. His first stint was with Thomas Cook where he joined as an executive trainee and was immediately sent off to Jaipur to manage outbound channel sales for the company. Having as good as “zero” knowledge of this sales vertical, he received his education on ground by handling customers who were almost as experienced as his age!
Within three years he took the turnover of Thomas Cook in Rajasthan from 1.7 crores to 5 crores and became the youngest senior executive in the company.
When Sales became a living passion for him, he decided to learn as much as he could by seeking opportunities in different verticals of sales. After championing Retail and Channel sales with Thomas Cook in Rajasthan, he worked with THE OBEROI HOTELS in New Delhi in their corporate sales and inbound travel sales verticals.
Gaurav’s hunger for knowledge then took him to Mumbai where he managed sales for the western & central region for DESTINATIONS OF THE WORLD.
In his 12 years journey, he has worked in every metro city in India and has lived in almost every city in the country!
Now, an entrepreneur since last 2 years, it has become gaurav’s dream and passion to equip every sales professionals in the country with necessary and adequate skill sets to master the art and science of Sales.
He is the founding member of school of sales and conducts most of the workshops and training sessions himself.
His philosophy is that “if you bang your head against the wall, the wall should break and not your head!”
And quite literally, he lives up to it as well!
