As a teacher, Nirmalya has his own unique philosophy and style.

Using his dynamic personality and high energy, Nirmalya believes in provoking debate, confronting and challenging established participant beliefs, and delivering content based on research.

"A great session should bring a transformation in consciousness on the part of the audience and motivate them to act on it".

He is inspirational while being practical. As a result, Nirmalya has won several teaching accolades and awards at Harvard, IMD, London Business School, Northwestern and Columbia University.

However, Nirmalya will disappoint those who believe that executive education instructors should act exclusively as skillful facilitators, constantly asking "what do you think" and offering reassurances like "interesting!"

Currently, he manages several executive programs at London Business School.
