WhiteSparrow Communications started its journey with the aim to conquer the world of online and offline advertising and branding under the able leadership of Rajpal Ghai, fondly know as RP Ghai. The foundation of this end-to-end marketing solutions provider was laid in 2013, and in mere three years, the vision and dedication of the Founder and CEO, Rajpal Ghai, has ensured meteoric growth.

Mr. Ghai is a true-blue Mumbai lad, who spent the initial 28 years of his life in this bustling metropolitan. It is here, in Mumbai, Mr. Ghai honed his creative skills, and went on to earn a post-graduate diploma in marketing from the prestigious SIES College of Management Studies, Navi Mumbai. Mr. Ghai passed his marketing studies with flying colors and was ranked among the top three positions of the Institute.

After completing in Post Graduation in Marketing, Mr. Ghai joined the retail giant Shoppers Stop Ltd. where he donned multiple caps. He started out as a Management Trainee, and had the distinction of being the only trainee to undertake a strategic assignment with the Managing Director of Shoppers Stop. Mr. Ghai was then promoted to Department Manager, where he had to train and manage Retail Coordinators to achieve their department goals. Appreciating his farsighted vision and ability to think innovatively, Mr. Ghai was soon promoted to an Assistant Merchandiser.. Here, he demonstrated his business acumen by increasing the Knit section’s sale by over 50 per cent.

Mr. Ghai moved to Chandigarh in 2009 to take over the mantle of Deputy Director, Marketing and Corporate Communications, for Chandigarh Group of Colleges, Mohali.

After accomplishing the responsibilities that he was given at Chandigarh Group of Colleges, Mr. Ghai wanted to make a difference in the world of advertising and marketing. This paved way for WhiteSparrow Communications, whose saga is still being written in the annals of the marketing world. However, the drumrolls are already sounding for WhiteSparrow Communications by those who have had the good fortune of being associated with this unique Digital agency and benefitted from Mr. Ghai’s creativity and business foresight.

Ms. Shalini Nambiar

Business Head at Avignyata- Digital Agency

Has a rich 26+ Years of experience in Education, and has been associated with various names like; VIBGYOR Group, G.D. Goenka Public School, the Heritage School, Excelsior American School and GEMS Education.

Her comprehensive knowledge of running a school has helped in building quality institutes like Heritage School, Gurgaon, Excelsior American School and GEMS International School, which last for an eternity. Her last assignment was with VIBGYOR Group as Sr VP, Head Academics.

Her philosophy can be summed up in the following lines, ‘Often times, in our search for the perfect moment of absolute learning, we fail to see the beauty of the stumbling blocks, the little steps that falter and fall backwards and the unsure moments of ‘I can’t do it’. Education has sadly become a race towards perfection and the highest possible grades. It is as much about the moral grain of the being, the accountability and responsibility towards oneself and towards the society, about being the liberal citizen of the world and moving with the times as it is about grades. I would like to see all my students as achievers and if they imbibe knowledge rather than acquire it, spare a thought for the have nots in their journey towards success, think that peace, harmony, giving back to society and care for the Mother Earth are not duties delegated to some specialists but to them, I will feel that I have been successful in playing my part in educating them in the real sense of the term’.

She aims to provide high end trainings in Leadership Development and Behaviour Skill Abilities for the organisation, Educational Institutions and Individuals.

She recently conducted successful trainings at Dubai, Srilanka and Mauritius. She has been a speaker at several National and International conferences. Most recent being at London and Dubai.
