PHILOSOPHY AND FOUNDER
TRANSFORMING CULTURE THROUGH ENLIGHTENED INDIVIDUALS
ADJUST YOUR APERTURE, FIND THE BEAUTY
Aperture is a term most often used in photography: by adjusting your aperture, you determine how much light you let into the camera. With this you can explore lightness, darkness, focus, and clarity, and bring out the full beauty of your picture.
APERTURE CULTURE IS ABOUT LETTING THE LIGHT IN
Personal development starts with awareness. When we let the light in, we can fully see ourselves. Aperture Culture provides training, consulting, and coaching to build awareness and make personal development accessible and actionable.
WHEN YOU STRENGTHEN THE INDIVIDUALS,
YOU STRENGTHEN THE COLLECTIVE
Aperture Culture leverages our own growth to enable culture transformation. As we develop ourselves, we can embrace the individuality in those around us. Enlightened individuals create better relationships, stronger teams, and more connected communities.
Founder of Aperture Culture,
Design Enthusiast, Data Nerd, & Lifelong Learner
I’m Sandhya and I’m the Founder of Aperture Culture. I believe life is all about the journey – whether it’s hopping on a plane to explore a new part of the world or the internal journey we take with ourselves. The only thing you need to pack is the desire to grow and openness to change.
I started my career in the corporate world focused on marketing and sales, building a foundation of process and structure, while developing people. Since then, I have led teams through major acquisitions, experienced highs and lows in company culture and leadership, and worked across different industries experiencing great amounts of change. Through all of this, the main focus of my work has been turning insights into action, and now I am bringing that same focus into people strategy and personal development.
