Corporate Training

Corporate Trainer, Neelam Kumar

My rich experience of several decades in India’s top steel company as Chief of Communications (Public Relations) and Deputy General Manager (Corporate Affairs) has given me an insider’s view of what employers are looking for in their employees in order to enhance productivity and take their company ahead of others.

Training is my passion and I am happy to share that over the years, I have trained professionals in every area of Soft Skills. My clients range from the IT sector, Financial Services, FMCG, Manufacturing industries and various private Institutes.

I strongly believe that one lifetime is not enough to explore the many people we are. Convinced of this, I began writing with the determination to live out the varied emotions and diverse experiences through the characters I create in my books.

And then Cancer happened. Not once, but twice. It awoke within me a hunger to breathe…to wake up each morning to new rejoice in the many things I could do within the limited time of one human life. Many women exploded within me, each demanding attention… each insisting to be heard.

That’s how I have become many women rolled into one. And each one of them transcends geographical boundaries in thought. Each one insists on being perfect… on ever renewing, ever revitalizing and re-inventing herself.

This write-up gives expression to my favorite aspects of myself. Others remain to be discovered.

As of now, I am Author; Life Skills Coach; Like Skills Counselor; Communication and Soft Skills Trainer. And these are my dimensions I wish to share with you.

Being a widely travelled and a globally educated professional, I have had the wonderful opportunity to enrich my personality with the best of several cultures.

My intuitive understanding of the human mind comes from my education in diverse fields from countries as varied as Russia and the US of A.

A person of varied interests, I am also a passionate wordsmith. I have written 7 bestselling books, including one with India’s eminent litterateur and renowned journalist—Mr Khushwant Singh. My books have won rave reviews and have a loyal readership.

My most recent success has been “To Cancer, With Love—My Journey of Joy” (Hay House, 2015). It broke the stereotype of Cancer being a grim word, emerged as India’s 1st humorous book on Cancer and zoomed on to become a bestseller.

There are three more “firsts”–India’s 1st comic book on Cancer; the 1st Life Skills Healing and Coloring Workbook and the 1st ever book on happy Survivors. My mission is to do my bit to spread hope, happiness and courage.

I hold a Masters degree in Journalism from the US, besides a Bachelor’s in English Literature; a Bachelor’s in Education and a Post Grad in Public Relations and Advertising.

My life has been one of several trials and tribulations, but I have emerged stronger after every crisis. I have utilized my life learnings to inspire others. That has made me a Motivational Speaker in various public forums—something I enjoy doing.

I love what I am doing. My strong spiritual core and beliefs have made me the resilient person I have become.

I try to re-invent myself each day so that I may become better today than I was yesterday. That is the challenge that makes my Life such an adventurous journey!

Dear Neelam Kumar. “By your own efforts, waken yourself, and live joyfully”…Gautam Buddha. Surviving Cancer can be the beginning of a beautiful story. Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. Twice inflicted, Neelam Kumar thanks Cancer for helping her discover the joy she experienced overcoming its negativity. This comic Book “To Cancer, with Love – My journey of joy” is a tale of love, adventure, personal growth, a do-it-yourself story with humor all rolled into one compulsively concise graphic comic book. The refrain, “looks easy enough” is the author’s general attitude towards life’s many processes – It is intended as an empowering affirmation to inspire readers with the confidence that they, too, can tackle even the most disheartening of life’s challenges and land on their feet. May it deign to help, a person’s process from a lesser to a greater perfection of oneself.

Tata Trusts support and drive innovation across several sectors like Healthcare, Education, Livelihoods and more.

Cancer Care, within the health portfolio, is a key focus area that requires the Trusts to adopt a multi-dimensional approach. Supporting the release of this book in a unique format, is one such way in which we believe that the populace can be better prepared to face adversities with a smile.
