Dr Anand Sethi

Who Am I

Dr Anand Sethi is a remarkable man who brings a wealth of experience and knowledge about India to Australia. After graduating from the world famous Indian Institute of Technology (Bombay), Dr Sethi lived and worked in the US where he was involved in converting semiconductors into the world’s first usable devices (e.g. transistors and integrated circuits) and other leading edge technologies. He returned to India to pioneer many high technology activities and ventures, including pioneering India’s first international expositions on electronics, telecommunications, biotechnology and aviation/ aerospace (India’s famed Air Show in Bangalore owes its start to him). 

Dr Sethi has four decades of active involvement in international joint ventures and business, particularly inbound ventures, technology transfers, projects and investments into India, and he has worked closely with many international companies from the USA, UK, Switzerland, and the Nordic countries on projects in India and other Asian countries. Over the years, he has been associated with many leading Indian corporate entities and several Central and State Government organisations. 

He is a frequent contributor to business and technical publications, journals and magazines in India, Europe and in the USA and is a co-author of the recent, highly acclaimed Doing Business in India.

About Speaking Minds

When Speaking Minds was founded in 2007 in New Zealand, little did we envisage that this would grow into an international brand with offices in India and London in less than a decade. We set up the business to share what we had learnt, from the privileges we have had in our jobs – of access to knowledge. Bringing India to the rest of the world was our driving force.
