In this talk, iRelaunch Managing Director Nivedita Naithani will provide valuable perspective and guidance for professionals looking to relaunch their careers through career-reentry programs after extended leave for childcare, eldercare, or other reasons. Whether your break was a short one or a very long one, you’ll come away from this talk with actionable tips to plan your relaunch.

Sanmaya Mohanty

Bridget Finkeldey

I am passionate about and have donned multiple roles in several domains including Data Analytics, community management, and digital strategy.

But when you get right down to the roots of it, I am much more a people person, a community guy (founder of stuops), and an avid observer of the Startup Ecosystem.

I am an avid believer in exploring different sects of profession, before finding your one true passion (if that sort of thing even exists!). I have worked as a developer, a community growth consultant, freelanced as a data analyst (MSBI expert!), and now I am discovering my passion for building communities.

And one thing common across all these domains was the need to push out content! So I am well versed in content creation, strategy, and creating full-fledged content pipelines.

I have helped several organizations and I can help you leverage the power of communities, as I have managed several communities organized 30+ in-person events and strategized 5+ hackathons.

As a Growth Marketer, I’ve built full-scaled digital marketing campaigns that attract traffic, convert leads, and most importantly, close sales.

In my freelancing stint, I have helped 30+ early-stage startups and offline enterprises leverage the power of content-driven social media marketing and strategized their organic brand growth, giving them more leads and revenues.

If you’re interested in community building, brand growth, digital outreach, startups or community in general – and have read so far, feel free to message me, and I will be the happiest to talk!
