Be Your Boss – Vikas Bansal

Founder and CEO, Impact Partners | Ex-GM at TATA Tele

B.Tech, NIT Kurukshetra | MBA, IIM Indore

Vikas was born and bought up in a God loving Hindu family. He did not have access to too many resources in his childhood, which was true for most people my age who were born around the mid 70s. Time and again he was told that good education and a great character were the building blocks of a successful life. He simply followed the advice.

He was fortunate to have studied in a convent school. He only had one ambition with regards to graduation – to be a graduate engineer from PEC Chandigarh, the same college where his father graduated from in 1967. He could not get through to PEC but made it to REC Kurukshetra, which today is known NIT Kurukshetra. He was not only good in academics, but performed fairly well in other activities as well (he was the college secretary handling the entire Literary and Debating activities). He worked for two years in a sales job post his engineering. He was one of the few students to have not opted for a software job, which in those days was a ticket to US.

The biggest dream of his life came true when he was selected for the MBA course at IIM Indore in 1999. He got an opportunity to interact with some of the finest minds in the country and it helped broaden his horizon. He successfully graduated in 2001. Over the next more than 17 years, Vikas has worked across the IT and Telecom industry with some of the biggest business houses in India.

He worked across various roles ranging from Sales and Distribution, Product Management, Strategic and Financial planning, Analytics, Customer Lifecycle Management, Innovation and Customer Experience. His goal was to understand the business and simply grabbed whichever new role came his way.

Since 2016, he also started taking guest sessions at MDI Gurgaon. He realized he was able to connect well with his audiences (this revelation was a Yahoo moment for him similar to what “Thakur” experienced after having tested Jai and Veeru in Sholay). He found his internal calling and started preparing for his second innings. He knew he could unleash his full potential in the training space.

Why Vikas?

Vikas finally took the plunge towards the end of 2018. Since then, Vikas has worked with a few corporates for their training requirements and has also organized personal sessions which have been attended by people across many industries. He has conducted full day workshops and also delivered keynote speeches. He continues to visit MDI Gurgaon for guest sessions and he is a visiting faculty at IMT Ghaziabad where he takes a regular course of Operations Strategy.

Vikas has published a book titled “Be Your Boss.” It is about developing the entrepreneurial mindset. The book made it to an Amazon Best Seller in US and was a Best Seller in India for 26 days in July 2020.
