Akhilesh Mandal

I bring a unique mix of Business & People insights to help organisations build High-Performance Culture and Authentic Leaders


“People side of Business is as critical and differentiating in determining the success or failure of a business, as the core business strategy itself” - has been the primary learning of Akhilesh in his diverse business experience. And the same learning became the driving force of his success in the last decade of his consulting services in building high-performance leaders and organisational culture.

An engineer by education followed by extensive business management training, Akhilesh is an ICF and TLC accredited Coach as much as he is certified in Intercultural Management and Organisation Culture by Hofstede Insights (now The Culture Factor Group).

Prior to people consulting which he has been doing for the last decade, Akhilesh has played key leadership roles ranging from Country Operations of large Technology major of Indian origin to holding P&L responsibility of Business Units of a large MNC; from driving Sales function of global businesses to crafting offshore strategies and nurturing start-up ventures. These diverse roles Akhilesh played across different sectors such as Aerospace and Engineering, Information Technology and People Consulting have led him to work and live together with his family in a variety of cultures in different geographies such as the UK, several countries of Continental Europe and of course his home country India.
