Shalini has a multi industry experience which includes Real Estate, Telecom, Hospitality, Sales & Marketing, Brand Communication, Public Relations and Media Relations. Despite her years of successful experience in the corporate world, Shalini’s true passion lies in the domain of social service. With Festival of Hope and various other ventures, she has taken the concept of social work to a whole new level, incorporating it within the luxury domain – the domain which is perhaps most capable of actually raising funds and making a difference.
