Abhay was born in East Africa and has traveled frequently throughout his life to Europe, Asia and North America. He received his education with a degree in engineering from Mount Royal University and is also a certified Gravitas International Coach and a graduate of Hoffman Institute. Abhay has over 25+ years of experience in strategy planning, leadership coaching and human resources to provide companies with proven results.
Abhay’s unique approach to adult learning and strategy in a corporate setting is based on the belief that each individual should be an extension of their company’s vision, value, and brand. In his experience in coaching leaders in organizations over time, Abhay has discovered that a leader who is able to preserve their personal core principles and values alongside a company they work for, often become significant contributors to the growth, success, and legacy of an organization. “You can’t just believe ‘it’ for the company’s sake… you have to stand by your own personal values first then align them with the company you work for.”
Abhay’s work in developing companies to strengthen their operating principles has shown itself in Canada and the United States throughout the health care, oil and gas, manufacturing, retail management, IT, and interior design industries. He continues on the path as life-long learner and human discovery in performance, he enjoys being a part of the learning process and seeing the exponential growth of a team when they work in unison towards a common vision. He currently resides in Calgary, Alberta where he volunteers with two community boards as their Executive Advisor. He also works with the Alberta Theatre Project board as the chair of the Governance group. During his extra time pursues his passion traveling the world experiencing different cultures across the globe and relishing in life’s greatest moments with family and close friends.
