Maya Sinha

From the Director's Desk

Maya Sinha embodies the very spirit of Emerging India - dynamic and resilient, with a can-do attitude. She's built around her an organisation that lives, breathes, and dreams her vision to add quality to the lives of Indians, by empowering them with skills.

It's also about opportunities. It's also about chances. And it all boils down to grasping them as they come. That's exactly where India is lagging today. For the chances are a plenty, but the skill to convert them are not. There's a huge skill deficit in the market, and we at CMC Skills, are on a mission to bridge this gap.

I've had the glorious chance to work closely with Emerging India for nearly 20 years in the IRS, and if there's one thing I've learned is that success comes only to those who believe in leading their lives in discipline. And every day, I try to pass on this very lesson to countless people. People with dreams, ambitions, hopes; just like you and me. Like us, they deserve to savour the taste of success, and for that, all they need is some little help. And every day, we try to do our bit. We try to add value to their lives, one person at a time till whole of India can stand up with its head high. That’s what the entire CMC Skills journey is all about. And we promise to see it till the end.
