Kavita Oberoi started her IT and business healthcare
consultancy, Oberoi Consulting, in 2001 after she was turned down
for a promotion at Bayer Pharmaceuticals.
In August 2008, Kavita appeared on Channel 4's The Secret
Millionaire, where she became involved in Martha's Oasis,
supporting the 'Sisters with Voices' programme to help young girls
gain self-esteem. Kavita continues to be involved in the charity as
its director, and says she wants to share her success and inspire
and help people.
In this video interview the successful entrepreneur talks about
the early days of her consulting business and her first job which
was a huge contract requiring freelancers. Kavita explains her
philanthropic work and why timing is important for her in decision
making and how a trip to India inspired her to help others. She
also speaks about juggling work and family life and her thoughts on
women's profile in business.
Oberoi gives expert advice on staff motivation and how the
recession can be seen as an opportunity not a hindrance for an
entrepreneur. She refers to company format and why she changed from
being a sole trader to a limited company and the adjustments
involved in the process. As one of the UK's most successful female
entrepreneurs she is able to provide a unique insight into the
world of consultancy.
