As a son of military personnel, I always wanted to be a military officer once I grew up. Soon after I finished college, I joined the Bangladesh Naval Academy & became a Naval Officer. In 2002, I left the Navy & headed for the capital city. I was clueless about what to do next. So, I spent few bohemian months in the campus of BUET, Dhaka University and Dhaka Medical College. Then I suddenly decided to sit for the admission test of MBA program in IBA, Dhaka University. Surprisingly enough (given how clueless I was), I got in and I graduated in the blink of an eye. After completing my MBA in marketing, I did what everyone wants to do: join a corporate job. So, I joined BATB IN 2005. I was posted in Sylhet where I practically learned distribution, trade marketing, consumer engagement & brand marketing techniques. Later, I served in Dhaka too. In 2008, I moved on & joined Banglalink marketing team. When I left Banglalink after more than 5 years, I was looking after the Market Research portfolio of Banglalink.

I’m happier than ever as an Independent Brand & Image Consultant. That’s the thing about doing what you love to do, you enjoy every bit of your work.
