Hi, I'm Ranjit Gaind, adventurer, entrepreneur, human being!
Ranjit Gaind - adventurer and entrepreneur. I have a passion for the good life, tasting every flavor and getting the most out of it whilst I’m still around! The name Ranjit Gaind is Indian - my father is from Kashmir in north India and my mother is from Swansea in south Wales. I grew up in the south east of England and I have lived in Europe, South Africa and Australia; I am growing my consultancy business across continents whilst having lots of fun! I have an IT & Management background but have moved between Sales, Marketing and Consultancy within that space since graduating from university. I have a pilot’s license, MBA and my hobbies include: scuba diving, sailing, flying, skiing, sky diving, travel, reading, theatre and all ball sports. I am always keen to make new friends and networks so please get in touch. You can see my blog on www.ranjitgaind.net
