‘Main roz ek punctured ego ke saath ghoomta hoon’ - Saurabh Sengupta, IIM Indore & IIT Delhi Alumnus, Ex-VP-Sales @Zomato
After quitting his job as an HR Consultant, Saurabh Sengupta, an IIT Delhi and IIM Indore alumnus, joined Zomato (then Foodie Bay) in a Sales role where his job description was as succinct as - "Dhandhaa khadaa karna hai." In over half a decade that he spent at Zomato, Saurabh did exactly that, going from doing door-to-door sales to becoming the VP of Sales, eventually parting with the organisation to establish his own venture.
These videos are a glimpse into his mind, his thought process, the inevitability of sales, and why everyone should work in sales at some point.
Full of anecdotes, insights and witty repartee, these videos are proof of how an MBA can benefit you based on your own proactiveness and commitment. If you’re an MBA aspirant or student, this is a must-watch conversation for you!
