My personal vision is to be “a ladder-holder”. I am happiest when enabling others to identify their potential and assisting them to achieve it.
I have good communication and people skills and I enjoy facilitating as a tool to help empower people through improved retention and application of lessons. Being equally fluent in English, Sinhala and Tamil helps me communicate effectively in any environment.
In facilitating, I use the Experiential Learning Cycle as a catalyst for behavior modification to achieve sustainable change. The main strength of this model, is that it is learning by experience; this is transferable knowledge with higher retention than other modes of training. The Experiential learning model can be customized for indoor and outdoor venues and be based on the client’s requirements.
I fully believe in the potential of work and business as a vehicle for good, and in the value of social enterprise and ethical entrepreneurship in reducing the impact of poverty as well as for sustainable development.
