Esha Shrestha, MSc SCPM 2017, Programme Manager, FLIX, Berlin

Esha grew up in a small Nepalese town on the eastern hills of the Himalayas. Her parents – who owned a bed and breakfast, were able and willing to offer her a private education. Esha is acutely aware of her privileged upbringing. In Nepal, private schooling is often the only way to access good standards of education, learn English, and develop the mind set required to forge a better life abroad. She insists that compared to many of her compatriots, she didn’t endure tremendous financial hardship. However, she did have to keep hammering away to get herself to where she is today.

As a child, she proved to have a sharp eye for how things operate and a natural interest towards optimisation and efficiency.

A natural problem solver, she has been lending a hand at her parents’ business for as long as she can remember. “I must point out that I got involved out of interest and never felt forced”. Her journey took her to west Bengal in India where she studied engineering, Bangalore for her first quality analyst job, then Nantes and Milan where she followed a master’s degree in Supply Chain and Purchasing Management at Audencia. She moved to Paris where she learnt her trade at Nissan’s European headquarters. She has recently settled in Berlin after joining Flix, a leading German company offering intercity bus services in Europe, North America and Brazil. Having developed a long-standing fascination for Germany’s legendary efficiency, this last move was also an opportunity for her to experience the system from within.

A board game collector, a goal planner, and a rational thinker who clearly likes all her ducks in a row, it would be easy to label Esha as a strategy geek. But a different side of her is unveiled when she shares her interest in self-development books and her spiritual quest for freedom. A sign that one can be curious about the ``what`` and the ``how`` in their worldly activity, whilst also questioning the ``why``.
