    Priyanka Nadkarni

    Managing Director,

    Window Seat Consulting (B2B marketing consultancy based in Singapore)

    For International Women's Day 2018, with the theme of #pressforprogress my pledge was to help the women in Asia progress by sharing their success stories and wise words of wisdom more easily.


    My experience has been that women are traditionally more humble, especially so in Asia, and as such, less likely to promote themselves and celebrate their successes. And I want to change that.


    And so, having taken a year to realise my pledge, I'm pleased to share How She Did It - Asia with my networks and the world! Come and hear the great stories of Asian women in business and be inspired! Please help us grow this worthwhile cause by sharing this to your networks.

    Hello Sister (Asia’s first female focused brand consultancy)

    She was formerly the Regional MD and global Board Director for Clear M&C Saatchi. She’s been living and working in Asia since 2005 in Beijing, Hong Kong and for the past 8 years as Permanent Resident of Singapore.


    Understanding what makes women tick, what values drive them both personally and professionally is the main focus of her work. She works with businesses who are actively trying to target and engage women for clients like Unilever, Abbott Nutrition, Pernod Ricard and GSK, through to a number of female-led and female focused startups.


    As a mentor with women’s mentoring initiative Protégé she recognizes that the lack of visibility of female leaders and lack of positive role models is one of the key barriers to young women progressing in the region. As such she sees the Podcast as one of the opportunities to raise the awareness of some of the women doing a stellar job across Asia and in doing so motivating other women who need that role model to envisage their own potential.
