Aman Gupta, associate at Baird’s CMC, is also the founder and CEO of Imprimis Life, India’s first communications consultancy specialising in life sciences and health. He’s been quite the trailblazer in the communications field in his country.
Nevertheless, when Aman looks back at his days as a young boy, he is thoroughly amused at how things have turned out. “My dad used to think I was an awful communicator. I mean, he was really and truly worried about me!” says Aman. In fact, his father, once convinced of his son’s need for improvement, lost no time in coming up with an action plan. Every day, after coming home from school, Aman had to read the newspaper, find ten difficult words, and memorise their spellings and meanings. In the evening, he would be tested by his father.
This evening ritual was followed throughout his formative years. “I guess it must’ve paid off. My dad is really proud of me now – even though he still isn’t quite sure about what exactly I do!” chuckles Aman
