For a man who resigned his corporate job to pursue his passion for Training and impacting people’s lives, Vivek is someone who strives to practice what he preaches! In fact, he sees this as the biggest reason for the continued success of his training programs because he is able to share real-life experiences with them and that brings an instant connect! This man of many talents is an avid magician especially doling out tricks for his kids.  Vivek is a theatre artist and numismatist too. But his biggest passion lies in taking the benefits of corporate training to families and positively impacting their happiness quotient, one family at a time. He is also very active with Social Organization Seva Sahayog and is often invited to be a key-note speaker for a number of NGOs due to his ability to motivate the audience!
