Andy Paula

andypaulaAndy Paula is a corporate trainer, an avid reader, a passionate blogger, and now, a writer. When she met her editor during the writing of Love’s Labor, she realized how ruthless she may have appeared to all the enthusiasts who nurtured creative dreams. “Never again,” she thought, “am I going to correct another article.” And she proceeded to make corrections in her own manuscript.

She confesses to never having made a kaleidoscope with broken bangles or taken apart a clock and put it back together, in her childhood. Two things that she did cherish were reading and falling in love. To the question, “What prompted you to write?” Andy gives a tongue-in-cheek reply.

“They say there’s a book in each of us. Just wanted to check if they were right!”

    Hi Andy, I have worked with 4 companies so far but the trainner like you was not anywhere. While in your tranning sometime I thought how can a person be so positve & polite. I remembered when your tranning session was scheduled our Q &IC team always nominated their names but for someone else we used to say we have lot of work load. Your tranning means a lot for every iGATER.

    There is no surprise that u wrote a book bcaz i always saw a writer & a true gentle person within in you. Hope there would be manny more. Best wises for future,……….

    • Andy August 8, 2013 at 11:07 am #

      I wish I could tell my ex-boss why the Q & IC never turned up for other trainings! Thank you for your kind words, Dinesh. Please pray that my books are as good/better than my training sessions 🙂 God Bless.

  11. Ankit Chakravarty July 23, 2013 at 7:16 pm #

    I still remember those seven days of my training, specially the way you greeted me when I reached early for the training. You said “Hi, I am Anindita Sarkar and your name please?” I replied “Hello, my name is Ankit Chakravarty”. “You so early for the training. O’ I see, early bird catches the worm. There were couple of other small discussions with you. Honestly, every time when I had discussion, I used to get super positive vibes.
    I am really happy but not surprised that you have become an author now. I am really proud of myself that I was one of your trainees. Recently, In a training in Barclays, I was asked this question. “Who is the most famous personality you have ever met in your life?” I didn’t have any answer… But I, now have…….All Best Andy!!

    • Andy Paula July 24, 2013 at 7:03 am #

      Ankit, do you know what your reminiscences mean to me? For you to remember so much of a regular work-day encounter speaks a lot about you as a person.

        There is no excuse for not providing medical care for those harmed in this situation. It's yet more reason, as if any were needed, why we need national, single-payer health insurance for all Americans.Of course, as you mentional about Sloan-Kettering, another angle to it is that we need the information that can be gained from providing coordinated ongoing care for those harmed by 9-11 and the ensuing cleanup.
