GURUPRAKASH IYER

CEO AND CO-FOUNDER

Guruprakash Iyer is Co-Founder & CEO of GNF International, a HR and Management Consulting Firm and Hermes Management Paradigms LLP, a Leadership and Academic Consulting Firm. He is also the National Vice President for Canada India Foundation, India.

Guru earned his MBA from Symbiosis Centre for Management and Human Resource Development-SCMHRD, one of the best MBA colleges in the country today. He has had an illustrious corporate career with India’s leading business houses like Tata, Airtel and The Arvind Ltd which has enhanced his business acumen and people skills. His ability as a marketing professional to turn around nose diving markets into stable performing ones has earned him the distinction of being a turnaround specialist.

After an illustrious corporate career of 15 years across advertising, textiles and telecommunications, he forayed into setting up his own consulting firm. As a result of his strong background in managing large corporate teams, marketing proficiency and an in-depth understanding of the nuances of managerial practices and human nature, top management sleuths and businessmen often want him as their ‘Right Hand’ man.

He leads by example, living the foundational tenet of leadership that ‘To lead, you need to be led’. Australia’s renowned Leadership Coach, Peter Cox, mentor to some of the most resurgent businesses and sporting leaders has been his coach & mentor for the past 21 years. Guru has subjected himself to Peter's strong and most effective leadership style and has imbibed Peter's FLITU principles of Family, Loyalty, Integrity, Trust and Unity, into his own philosophy of Life. His thirst for leadership learnings has taken him to world renowned leadership coaches and authors in the likes of John Maxwell and Robert T Kiyosaki.

His organization’s client roasters include the likes of The Adani Group, Exide Group, Maruti, Shivalik Group, Gujarat Chambers of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU), Piramal Group and Aditya Birla Group to name a few. He has also launched 1minuteguru on Instagram where he shares wisdom capsules to expand his leadership coaching. (https://www.instagram.com/1minuteguru/?utm_medium=copy_link)

He is also an accomplished playback singer and in his free time one can often catch him humming to his favourite tunes of Kishore Kumar with his friends and family.

You will always hear him say, “… keep the main thing the main thing and the main thing is – ‘The Dream is everything!’ ”

And just like the different tunes in Music, Guru effortlessly blends all the talents in one and truly lives up to his name …. ‘GURU’
