Vishnu Karthik is the definition of passion and this reflects in his ‘being’ and ‘doing’. His journey – from a management consultant with firms like Grow Talent, Accenture, delivering projects across India and abroad, to that of the Head of Senior School, curating deep learning experiences - is one of a deep-rooted conviction in the role of education in creating sustainable and much-needed change leaders and social entrepreneurs in society.
