In a place like IIT where we are always focused only on academics, it becomes very important for us to discuss things like emotional intelligence etc and you guys found such interesting ways in which we could discuss it, that we never got bored in discussing such issues. You asked whether we took even iota from this class: iota really underestimates what I actually took from this class. Thanks for giving us such a wonderful experience!

She is an amazing person full of life and motivated thoughts. She has full knowledge of her subject and gives her heart to the person while coaching.
She does full justice to her job and goes beyond her limits to support the person.

Aparna's strength lies in her focus and willingness to try new things. And that's exactly why she has done remarkably well as a TV Producer, Director, Artist and a Consultant. She has a strong sense of responsibility towards her team and her work. A people's person, Aparna is intuitively aware of what works with certain people and what doesn't.

My collaboration with Aparna happened while listening to her talking passionately about her art assignment with IIT. She came across as a person who believes in what she does and that to me, is the most important part of a job.
She created a module on " Time Management via Art" for Times Internet- While the topic is an old one and has been done numerous times, it was never done via art! Aparna was confident that the participants would love it and she worked with me to chalk out the objectives and mould her session accordingly. Needless to say, it was a hit and it brought out various facets of time management that people face- personal as well as professional.
Aparna is extremely passionate about her work, articulate in how the design would come together and open to hearing what the other side of the table wants. Her articulation went a long way in making me comfortable that this would work in a corporate set-up! Highly recommended.

We at Canara HSBC Life had an opportunity to partner with Aparna for workshops for our middle level management team. Aparna brings in energy, a deep understanding of learning concepts, connects very well with participants and uses engaging training methodology. Her sessions are very engaging, lively and she is able to explain difficult concepts in a simple way.

Aparna’s workshops at IIT-Delhi have been exemplary and very well received by the third and fourth year students. One of the defining feature of her work is that students learn through art exercises, music, debates and all this combined together brings the element of playfulness in learning.
Her work has attracted very positive feedback and a result of which she has been regularly asked to take these workshops for IIT-D students.
As a creative professional, Aparna draws from the range of her varied experiences and always has an eye on the goal. She is constantly looking out for alternative solutions in her quest to deliver agreed results.
