About me

My name is Nikhil, a diversely experienced Account Manager with several years of experience in delivering digital transformation through technology.

My background includes roles where I helped established companies deploy enterprise software to increase revenue, reduce costs, monitor operations, launch new products, and support market share growth. My strengths include sales, customer success, marketing, and project management.

Focused on giving back to the community, I combine my passion for mentoring with the experience and skills gained over the years to guide mentees in their personal and professional development.

Over the years, I have been assessing for a worthy cause where I could give back to the community. For me, I found out that I can contribute my time and energy to changing lives through mentoring.

Since 2014, I have embarked on various professional mentoring initiatives, initially guiding students at University before translating the same approach to internally developing employees at Cvent.

Every year, I also reach out to Universities that run mentoring programs for their students to support their next steps. I not only lead by example, but I also get involved in my mentee's development. My mentees have been proactive in initiating contact, enthusiastic, respectful, and appreciative of my time.

Being a mentor has been very rewarding and fulfilling, the experience has been great. The joy I get from mentoring is like nothing I’ve experienced before, and while I have a journey of my own that I am navigating I am always humbled that I can continue to invest in other people’s lives and dreams.

Nikhil was phenomenal in providing his expertise and perspective in working within Account Management+Sales. He provides a vast array of knowledge within the industry yet comes with detailed methods in advise and helped me tremendously to figure out my next venture and career preference. I'm thankful of the Mentoring Club in making this possible and thank you Nikhil for your help with my resume/CV+advise for someone stepping back into Sales from my previous Start Up roles.

Yes, it was a very helpful session. With your extensive experience in the field, your guidance on Account Management was helpful in understanding how the field branches out and what all I can explore.

I am looking forward to executing the ideas you shared on how I can overcome my MAU challenge.

Continue having mentoring calls like these!

Our session was extremely helpful-- (1) I learned to look at the job description through the eyes of a very experienced account manager and was able to connect the required skillsets with my current ones. (2) We also identified the areas I probably need to showcase more in the interviews (3) During our discussions on sample questions, I realized that I could bring in more tangible steps or examples just to be more convincing that I am capable of the upcoming challenges.

All in all, it was a very positive experience. We used the time efficiently and I have really learned more than I expected.

PS: I would like to compliment on the way you speak -- the speed is comfortably moderate, word choice very assertive and message clear. I would probably book another session just for you to coach me on how to speak assertively as well! :-)
