In my endeavor to bring forth talent from Belgaum to the fore front here is just one more attempt.
Suhas Talwar is from Belgaum and was in Belgaum till his education and also afterwards and then went into this field of Training.
“It’s Not The Chances We Take; It’s The Choices We Make, That Determines Our Destiny.”
Suhas Talwar has an experience of 10 years working in various fields across all the levels of organizations. His passion and the calling for facilitation transited his career into the world of facilitation. Working with diverse teams and organizations over a period of time has given him an unique insight into understanding human performance and its variables. He has an unique ability to inspire,
motivate, challenge and make people laugh at the same time. In addition to his capability to manage Soft Skills Training function, he has trained a variety of audience ranging from Executives to Managers on varied subjects. He has had the privilege to work and learn from some of the most successful people. He is absolutely committed and is result oriented. He believes in helping people create positive changes and produce measurable results by taking massive action.
Through his work we believe in creating your best life – whatever that may mean to you. It is about learning to do things in a different way, to create different results and making a permanent positive change in every area of your life. A lot of us have under achieved and wasted our potential for too long. In our workshops which are confronting, eye-opening and a lot of fun, Suhas will challenge, inspire, motivate and dare you to rediscover yourself.
Ø What is that you exactly do?

Ø You basically interact with the employees of a company and teach them how they could contribute to the company more effectively?
We work on the method; analyze, plan and deliver. We first meet the concerned people and understand the issues. We then meet the participants/employees of the organization and understand from them how they feel about the situation (issues). We then develop a customized program for them so that they can relate to it and hence help them to realize what they can do to eradicate the problem and enhance productivity joyfully at the workplace.
We also provide one-to-one coaching services to supervisors, senior executives and managers of organizations.
Ø What is the basic use of the training you give?
The use of my training is like the use of any other thing. I share tools and strategies with people who want to be successful. I teach people that they are the solutions to the problems and they are the problem too. If you implement what you understand from my programs it’s life changing (better of course) and if not implemented it’s a waste. It’s like an degree which when used can be very powerful and if not is just a piece of paper.
Ø Why have you chosen this field?
I have worked in various fields before I finally got into facilitation. I have always had this urge to understand human behavior and help people in some way possible. This passion of knowing what makes the difference in human performance lead me into the world of personal growth and facilitation. I have worked at a garment store, a medical transcriptionist, a manager at a call center and then with a couple of training organizations thus gaining rich experience and exposure by working at various levels across organizations. The primary reason to choose this field is the passion to understand human performance and help people to live a better life.
Ø How many employees help you in this?
I am supported by 3 people at this time and have a pool of consultant trainers who are associated with us. It is an ecosystem that we believe in.
Ø Where have your workshops being held? Name a few
We have conducted most of our workshops in Pune. However, we have also conducted some programs in Mumbai and Bangalore. Most of these programs were conducted for corporates’ like IBM, Infosys, Compulink, Option one, Forbes Marshalls and a few others.
Ø Where did you get your training done in this field?
I have been trained by some of the best trainers in the country. I was initially trained by Mr. Mitesh Khatri of GLC and then by Mr. Kirron Gulrajani of Eternale learning for behavioral skills and leadership. I am also trained by Ms. Aparna Prabhudesai for accent neutralization and cultural sensitivity. A list of programs I have attended and trained for are as below.

Ø So you travel a lot to different cities or is it you have a school?
We do have an office where we train people at the same time we also travel to any place where we need to help people and organizations through our training.
Ø Where was your preliminary education?
I completed my diploma in civil engineering from government polytechnic, Belgaum after completing my schooling at St. Paul’s High School, Belgaum.
Ø How and what was the response from your family when u said you will go into this field?
Well I did not tell my parents about me taking this path. My wife has stood by me all the time, strong like a pillar. My parents have always let me do what I have wanted to do, I have been lucky in this area.
Ø You worked in a garment store, then a call centre. So that must have been hard times for you?
I would not say that the road was a bed of roses. I did face a lot of problems and this is where I learnt my valuable lessons from. I share a lot of my experiences in my programs and help people to relate it to situations in their lives and it is not very difficult to overcome them.
Ø What motivates you to motivate others?
I have shared with you that it’s my passion to understand human performance and this motivates me to help see others in their peak state, psychologically and physiologically.
Ø Do you do this for only corporate or also try it for college students or even school going kids?
I conduct programs for corporate and for anyone who wants to live an extraordinary life, anyone who wants to live a life of design and not a life of chance. I do conduct special programs for students. I am thinking of a program for school kids though which I will start early next year (2009).
Ø Have you planned any program in Belgaum?
I will conduct my first program in Belgaum in January and I hope to meet and make an impact on the enthusiastic people.
Disclaimer: I have known Suhas since school, as he was in my batch. I am again and again reiterating that I am here to get people like Suhas known to the world.
