– About Me
I constantly remind people to use common sense which is not very common
- 2006: graduated as a Civil Engineer (still do not know why I became an engineer).
- 2008: did MBA from RMIT University, Australia. And I thought I could run a successful business.
- 2008 – 2010: failed in six startup ventures (nothing against MBA or RMIT University, in fact, today I guest lecture the subject of business finance management at the same University).
- 2010 – 2013: learnt about business finance and accounting NOT from any school or college but directly from the best of the best CAs, CMAs, CFOs, CPAs, financial gurus, business owners and entrepreneurs. Little did I know I was understanding the subject of finance from an engineer’s perspective. As engineers, our mindset is a problem-solving mindset, not just a compliance mindset!

I'd always struggled with numbers, even the basic maths through school. I always preferred leaving the accounts to someone else, Finance just simply wasn't for me! After starting my own business I've come to realise that in order for me to be in control of my money and be an effective business owner it was time for me to get my head around the numbers! After attending program conducted by Chinmay, I can genuinely say I feel more capable and equipped to tackle the accounts in my business. The program helped me realise that numbers ARE for me, and it’s really not as scary and daunting as I had thought. It made numbers fun and reminded me I can always learn new skills!
“Chinmay’s program helped our firm especially lawyers like us to better interact with accounting and financial professionals with ease. We are now able to ask better questions to them and have a meaningful conversation when it comes to numbers.”
Small Business Owner,Melbourne
"A must program for anyone starting or managing a business."
Account Manager, Origin Energy, Australia
“Program was invaluable. It made me understand that my decisions can impact the bottomline of our company. It has empowered me to confidently have conversations with higher management and even our CEO."
Dr. Madhura Chatrapathy
Hon. Director of Asian Centre for Entrepreneurial Initiatives (ASCENT)
“Chinmay’s program for non-finance managers surely enables them to easily grasp not only the basics of financial statements but also how to an effective manager. This is a commendable endeavour of Chinmay for presenting these workshops so passionately on finance, as he loves to say “from a non-accountant for non-finance people."
Manager, MARG Ltd India
“The workshop for non-finance managers was an eye-opener and has moved me to love finance. I got addicted to the simplicity and lucidity of the jargon-free language used. I think the objective of any training program is to generate interest to explore more on that subject. This workshop did exactly that.”
CSO, Maribyrnong City Council, Melbourne
“Chinmay is a great educator. He masterfully mixed stories, plain English explanations, and relevant activities to awaken our minds to being a smarter finance person. It was an enticing taste of what valued knowledge he can impart.”
Interior Designer, Melbourne
"I always hated finance and avoided it. But after attending Chinmay’s program I understood that finance is not only essential but also it is easy to learn. Chinmay engaged us with stories, at the end of which we had learnt about complicated terminologies used in finance. It left us wondering is finance that simple! I would recommend this program to anyone who thinks finance is complicated."
Health Care practitioner, Melbourne
"I was always inquisitive about numbers. But whenever I read something about finance or interacted with financial professionals, I was not able to relate. After attending Chinmay’s program and understanding the basics, I can now confidently interact with accountants and financial experts."
