Gautam Garry Guptaa , an award-winning, internationally experienced communications specialist has been Director, The Personality School, Mumbai since 1993. He offers consulting, coaching and customized training services. His areas of expertise include speaking and presentation skills, multicultural communication, business etiquette, call center training, customer service and professional communication. He is a certified expert in Corporate etiquette and international protocol as well.

Gautam did his schooling from Delhi Public School, graduated in Economics from  Delhi University and did his Business Administration (Finance) from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Edmonton Canada. Here, he began working and held jobs as diverse as a flight attendant,  waiter and a salesman where he successfully sold eight vacuum cleaners to one household, which was holding a family reunion!

And with this came the realization that to excel in one's career and achieve prosperity, professional qualifications alone were not enough. Hundreds of thousands of poor souls go through life, hating their mediocrity and wishing that they could change their stars. They seek the key to success.

Gautam discovered that despite all the material comforts of the West, India was where his heart lay. This was his homeland and this was where he belonged. He felt that Indians were missing out on opportunities simply because they lacked the right tools. And to fully realize the potential they were born to achieve and unlock the  secrets of success, all they required was a certain life - enhancing tool that would hone their mental, physical and interpersonal faculties.

Thus began the Personality Development course, specially tailored to empower the Indian Market. This programme was entirely conceptualized on his work experience abroad and has been greatly influenced by lectures and seminars of eminent experts from USA, particularly  Zigzigler and  Anthony Robbins . What began in 1993 with just 4 students has today surpassed 30,000 people from all walks of life.

His workshops have always been extremely informative, exciting, fun and customized to individual needs. As a result of the individual attention given to the participants, the workshops have consistently received high acclaim. The participants leave feeling inspired and motivated to utilize and implement the suggestions and practical ideas.

In addition, he also teaches professional writing and presentation skills to employees at all levels in business and industry. Looking at the cultural context as well as individual performance, he designs and implements communication strategies and training to help clients meet their goals. Leading multinationals such as Motorola, BASF, Eicher etc. have invited him to train their staff. Other leading software companies like TCS have also had staff trained by him.

He has publication credits, is a frequent speaker and facilitator both nationally and internationally and has received several outstanding training and professional awards. He is also associated with the Times of India, where he has a weekly column in the "Downtown Plus" supplement, where people from all walks of life ask him questions on Personality Development, Grooming and other aspects of self development.

If there has been any regret, it was that he was unable to reach out and touch more lives. His groundbreaking course has already helped thousands of students dramatically improve their performance. But Gautam is not one to rest on his laurels and his burning desire was to share his life - enhancement skills with as many people as possible. Thus, the idea of writing a self - help book germinated. Informal talks with former students revealed that one aspect of the course, which really appealed to them, was the section on First Impressions. His widely read column too, is inundated with queries on how to make a lasting impression. This formed the genesis of his book " The First Four Seconds "

Each Workshop follows the schedule below:

Duration 1,2 day programme
No. of Students    Minimum: 10 Maximum:30
Timing 10.30 am - 5.30 pm (One Hour Lunch Break)   
Fees Subject to situation

By cultivating correct communication ability and using skills constantly we are bound to emerge with confidence to tackle various situations and enhance acceptability from those around us.

After graduating from the course, the trainee would be able to understand that the most important business investment of all is in people and in developing their abilities to communicate with customers and to work well with one another, without that, all other investments will be a complete waste.

After having accomplished the Communication Skills program the candidate would be able to increase his marketability through effective persona. His confidence levels, sales ability and business etiquette would increase multifold.
