Acquiring such attributes, ardent entrepreneur, Dr. Nithinart Sinthudeacha Telan, Founder and CEO of N-able Plus Co., Ltd and Founder and Executive Committee Chairlady of Beryl8 Plus Co.,Ltd, is creating a difference in the traditional way of offering management guidance.
A Fervent Leader
Nithinart stepped into her career in a PR agency at Burson-Marstellar in New York after completing her first masters. Her role, in a responsible campaign of the first launch of Acuvue—first disposable contact lens, aided her to learn a lot on answering the controversial questions and conveying constructive messages in challenging circumstances. After completing her PhD, Nithinart entered into establishing a long-term career with Accenture, which played a major part in her development, professionally as well as personally.
Prior leaving Accenture, she was a Partner overlooking Organizational Transformation and Change Management Strategy Offering for Asia and Pacific. Even though her career was elevating upwards, she had taken a break in order to take care of her ill father. Nevertheless, the firm grit to pursue passion prevailed at last. And she operated as an internal adviser for Thaibev—a large Food and Beverages Conglomerate, for straight two years which acted as a turning point in her entrepreneurial journey.
In 2008, she founded N-able Plus, a niche management consulting firm, specializing in organization & HR transformation, change management, and culture development. In addition,, N-able Plus has attained a reputation of helping its clients on innovation management and recently on digital culture & leadership transformation. Meanwhile, in a partnership with Salesforce, Nithinart co-founded Bery18 in 2009, which currently stands as the largest partner and reseller of Salesforce in the Asia Pacific.

Since sustainability became a strategic issue especially in the resources industry, relying on innovations is the key strategic agenda for the firms.

Glorifying Facets of a Skilled Leader
Nithinart firmly believes that passion is the key ingredient which drives an entrepreneur to achieve the desired goals. And, a work-loving factor also helps an entrepreneur to acquire the energy needed to surpass over the problems and strive for success. Attaining growth attitude and an optimistic behavior also aids a leader to carve a venture effectively.
