Geeta Sidhu-Robb and Rupa Ganatra were the key note speakers at a recent Asian Business Association Women in Business networking evening hosted by Tony Matharu
A rapt audience in the Jaipur Room of the Mint Leaf restaurant in Haymarket heard how Rupa Ganatra had grown up in a family of entrepreneurs and worked in investment banking for a number of years after graduation before co-founding Millennial 20/20, a global event management company which is going from strength to strength.
The lessons from her path to success she shared with the audience included the maxim: revenue is vanity, profit is sanity. She also advised business people to build their networks before they needed them, and not to be afraid to move out of their comfort zones.
Geeta Sidhu-Robb had started out as a corporate lawyer before founding Nosh Detox, an award-winning wellbeing company a fifth of whose clients are household names. Her business was the result of becoming interested and expert in dealing with food in relation to allergy treatments for her son. Her sales process started with building solutions for clients – clients then became buyers and, subsequently, subscribers.
