As a key note speaker, certified coach, and successful entrepreneur, he has supported over 500 people to overcome hardships and accelerate their careers. Sharad first found fulfilment in helping people discover their career paths through founding the CKL mentorship program, a cause close to his heart. This led him to connect with a deeper purpose and awareness that coaching impacts not only careers, but our lives holistically. This inspired Sharad to co-create MyLifehouse, which seeks to demystify life coaching, expand its access, and help people find their authenticity.
Entrepreneurship, through success and failure, entrenched Sharad’s skills in creating, hustling, selling, and leading. Since building his first business at 23 during the dot com era, Sharad has founded and led a wide variety of ventures. Once an idea sets in, there’s no stopping him. He is a master at ideation, strategy and team development. His ventures include a successful mid-size marketing and communications agency, trendy dot com e-magazine, fitness tech aggregator, CKL mentorship program, and now the MyLifehouse coaching platform. Prior to this, Sharad started his career with world class organizations such as BCG, P&G and AON Hewitt across management consulting, marketing, and HR consulting.
