Our Training:  We have well-defined training programs, on a 1-on-1 basis, which are low priced, and which take into consideration that all have different skill sets and different abilities, and of course, different problems/ issues. Every one has a different goal, but needs inputs to achieve those goals in any case.  One of our dream projects is also to enable people from rural areas to become Gramaprueners ( under the BYST platform) in manufacturing  low cost building materials locally. Do you want to join hands ?

Under the Persona Academy banner, we have trained over 1000 candidates in personality development, soft skills, writing & presentation skills and advanced spoken English. Dinesh is also a practicing/ registered mentor on BYST India (CII sponsored, honorary), and SallyPortal -The Mentoring portal of Rice University Houston, and an India based well wisher of the GLCM- The Global Leaders in Construction Management of the Colombia University in the City of New York.
