Delve Deep Into Your Business Insights with Experience Backed by Academic Credibility alongside Dr. Shambavi Rajagopal

Best known for being a strong networker and connector of people, Dr. Shambavi wears different hats for different occassions. An academician, entrepreneur, and consultant, Dr. Shambavi is an experienced professional who promises to bring a unique perspective to your business.

As a resident of the UAE for the previous three decades, Dr. Shambavi has seen the growth and development in the UAE first-hand. Her career path has journeyed across multicultural populations, university students, and up-and-coming entrepreneurs; many of whom are based in the UAE. This built network and her professional experience makes her immensely well versed in most things UAE.

From core business efficiencies to nuanced brand positioning, Dr. Shambavi is perfectly positioned to help you grow professionally. However, to help, knowing what help is needed is important, and each business context has its own caveats. Which is why Dr. Shambavi offers a 22-minutes free discovery call – allowing you to have a proper discussion about “How Dr. Shamabavi can help you?”

Quite simply, because you’d like to do better. Business growth and development is on you, but that’s not to say you have to build a successful business alone or doing it alone brings more merit. It doesn’t. Dr. Shambavi will help you delve, discover, and deploy your vision with you. Plus, the first 22-minute discovery call with Dr. Shambavi is non-chargeable. There is nothing to lose, only wins to be earned.

I signed up with Dr. Shambavi Rajagopal๐ŸŒˆ to leverage my personal branding - with very little idea of what Owned media comprised. I knew it would be completely worth my time and money but what took me by surprise was the wealth of information and suggestions that came forth the discussion. Small easy yet effective ideas easily implementable (have already started working on them), efficient use my owned media and improving on other platforms using marketing strategies. Shambavi was on full throttle and we completed our 3 sessions with a wealth of to-knows and to-do's. Thank you so much for your continuing support.

I had the opportunity to work with Dr Shambavi on how to use social media and especially Linked in for promoting my profile and my business network. She was guiding me and give me a lot of tips on how to develop my linked profile and be more exposed to the industry. Dr Shambavi is very knowledgeable and supportive. I really admire how she can improve your profile in few minutes. As well she is a very nice person to work and collaborate with her.

Your Growth Leads to and Comes From Your Business Growth

Doing business is not easy – and there’s no reason to make it harder. The current business age is one characterized by extreme action-bias, high digital savviness, and differentiating credible from the fake. But your business demands your time, and honestly, one doesn’t have enough time in their life to go through so much information, learn about everything, and then apply it.

Well, I’ve spent 333 years researching for 111 hours every week, and still continue to, just so you don’t have to.

All these learnings are condensed into a 3-hour a month learning plan (I am an academician after all). If you would like to stay up-to-date with the happenings of Dubai’s business world, research from academic journals, frameworks to apply for your business, or have a consultant you would like to speak to on a weekly or monthly level, you maybe interested in these.

Need Help Growing Your Business & Establishing a Strong Brand Identity?

Just like features aren’t benefits, having a business doesn’t mean having a brand. Both require careful attention and planning, lots of time and energy, and a fair degree of professionalism (depending on the nature of business, this might be low or high).

But we only have so much of these and the cost of careful attention, time, energy, dedication is a premium… and as an entrepreneur that’s a pricey premium isn’t it?

It doesn’t have to be. This is the main benefit of us working together. Together, we will create a system to simplify your business and brand activities, allowing you focus on the vision you want to bring to life.

How Does Consulting Work?

After you book an appointment, we will get to know each other better over a short call. Please note, this call is free and you won’t be charged for this. By the end of the call, I will give you a price in-line with the number of session and project timelines.

What Does Dr. Shambavi Charge for Consulting?

The base rates are AED 250 for 1 session, AED 700 for 3 sessions, and AED 1100 sessions. Special rates maybe provided if applicable.
