Hi, I'm Sudeep. I'm a luxury retail consultant, based in Gurgaon, working at the intersection of fashion, design and technology.

Quick introduction or just keep scrolling

I help clients SCALE UP !

Which really means that I assist in decreasing risk and increasing success in business ! 

Which is a fancy way of saying, that I assist in retail operation optimisation, sales & marketing and strategic partnerships.

I am also passionate about design and innovation, especially in retail !

 

CONSULTING

 

I run a boutique consulting practise helping clients drive customer engagement and revenue growth.

Over the last 20 years, I have worked in Operations, Sales, Marketing and Brand Strategy with 25+ brands across Hospitality, Retail, Fashion, Luxury and Education. Handling a diverse range of projects, gives me a unique perspective in connecting the dots, understanding context and drawing out action plans to achieve business results in rapidly-changing environments.

 

I look at clients as long term partners and see myself as an extension of their team. Most of my consulting work is tailor made to suit the brief of the project I am involved in. 

Typically I engage in the following three ways - 

IDEA SPRINT

A one to one meeting to discuss possibilities and challenge business assumptions. I use the Design Thinking framework in problem framing in addition to the Business Model Canvas to discover possible focus areas

RESIDENCY

A minimum 3 month or more association to deliver specific business milestones.  Focussed on Strategic, Operational or Marketing goals. An ideal assignment is generally a mix of 60% Execution and 40% Ideation

MENTORSHIP

With a long term view on Corporate Innovation, I am currently curating an international community dedicated to FashTech in India. I assist technology startups focussing on Retail with Go To Market Strategy, Customer Acquisition and Marketing.

TEACHING

"In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn"

I am passionate about motivating people to become the best version of themselves ! 

Which is a fancy way of saying, that I have been teaching and training about Sales, Negotiation, Retail Operations, Value Management, Sustainability, Critical Thinking and much more 

I am also a Design Thinking Facilitator and actively encourage and practise Design Sprints !

"What you seek is seeking you."
