Happy Beginning. After a very long innings working for industry leaders, the time has come to move on, to jump out of the comfort zone of a cushy job, and venture out to turn my own ideas into reality…..And with this idea in mind, I now proudly unveil to you: GEMKonnect: an exclusive consulting firm to the fascinating industry of diamond, gem and jewellery. With its global outlook, coupled with a deeper understanding of the requirements of this growing industry, GemKonnect is poised to take a leap of progression, in its mission to assist companies to leverage their deliverable in a value based and time bound manner. Here I am — young and vibrant, in a world of ideas. Ideas that I think will transform the gem and jewellery industry that I have worked in for over a decade. Ideas that market leaders and movers like yourself will surely appreciate for their ability to initiate change.
