About Novellus Solutions

We are an international company with world-class expertise in safety management and human factors. We regularly facilitate (online and in-person) workshops to promote innovation across safety-critical industries. A key aspect of our work is spending time researching real-life experiences and creating compelling human stories of those experiences. We use these stories to create engagement, reflection, questioning, and active listening. Our aim is for leaders to experience a truly learning environment and it often starts with appreciating diversity of viewpoints. We call it celebrating differences.

A word on the power of differences. Understanding differences does not mean we have to agree with them. Rather, differences challenge us from within, enrich our experiences and create possibilities for dialogue, discussion and change. Appreciating differences brings us closer to each other. When we learn to celebrate differences, we create an environment for learning and growth.

I believe in celebrating differences. As uncomfortable as it may sound, it is in my opinion the most effective way of learning when we begin to appreciate viewpoints that don’t necessarily coincide with ours. I help organisations and leaders understand the power of diversity for personal and organisational growth.

I originally come from India. I have worked as a merchant navy officer for just over a decade and then decided to take up a master’s degree in economics and later a PhD in Social Sciences at Cardiff University. After a short-lived career as a full-time researcher at Nottingham University Business School, I decided to return to the industry as a safety inspector working in the North Sea area for seven years to put my academic curiosity to testing. In 2019, I decided to quit a full-time job and set up my own company.

Based in the North East of Scotland (Aberdeen), I travel extensively and set up learning events across the world. My work is highly recognised both in the scientific community and across safety-critical industries – maritime, oil and gas, aviation, retail, health, insurance and renewable sector. My key interest lies in cultural anthropology, organisational learning, safety management and human factors. There is a beautiful expression in anthropology – ‘making the familiar strange and the strange familiar’. I find it extremely helpful in making sense of the world around me.

The picture is of Janus, an ancient god in the Roman mythology. Janus represents transition, time, duality, passages and ending. Janus is often depicted as having two faces - looking ahead and behind. For us this means learning from the past as much as embracing what lies ahead.
