Sunil Parekh

Founder's Profile

Sunil Parekh is more than a founder; he is a visionary. With a storied career that spans over two decades, his expertise is not just rooted in academic excellence as an IIT gold medallist and a master's degree holder from Virginia Tech, but also in the rich experience of life's diverse lessons.


Sunil's transformative journey has been fuelled by the mentorship of global thought leaders, and his mission through RDA is to share that wisdom on a platform that reaches, teaches, and transforms lives worldwide.

Our Approach

At RDA, we believe in a holistic approach to development, an intricate dance of Eastern philosophical depth with Western scientific rigor. 

Our workshops and courses are designed to not only impart knowledge but also to instigate change. They are spaces where breakthroughs happen, where participants connect deeply with their inner selves, and where every learning experience is a step towards profound personal and professional growth.
