Chairperson, Presidium

Mrs. Sudha Gupta is an educationist par excellence and a visionary with a difference. Her expansive vision encompasses children, parents, teachers and the society as a whole. 'To create a better world' is precisely how she explains her vision.

She has done extensive work in the field of education for the past 11 years. With the target to become a strong chain of formal schools to be operational at 10 locations by the year 2020, you'll have endless opportunities to grow in your career. She has propagated the concept of holistic education that focuses on overall development of children namely academics, life skills and talents. To bring the concept of holistic education to formal education, she established Presidium with a unique vision of 'Be what you want to be'.

Being a renowned educationist herself, she knew that only happy and motivated teachers could make her vision a reality. This led to the conception of 'The Knowledge Tree', an academy which imparts new age expertise and skills required in teaching and school management. 'Leaders in education' and not teachers is what she aims to produce.

Sudha Gupta is also one of the nation's most sought after parenting expert. As the chairperson of Mother's Pride chain of pre- nursery schools and Principal of Presidium Senior Secondary School, Sudha Gupta uses her 11 years of experience of dealing with parents and children to pen down some inspiring tips of positive parenting. She has conducted research on thousands of children and parents to reach some very effective methods of parenting. Sudha Gupta has written more than 1000 articles on the subject of parenting in leading newspapers and magazines like Times of India, Hindustan Times, India Today and Femina. She has authored several books on early childhood education and parenting, Celebrate Childhood and Jingling Rhymes to name a few. Her seminars, publications, T.V. and radio programs on parenting have transformed thousands of parents of Mother's Pride and Presidium, her staff of more than a thousand members and over a million of readers and listeners.

Mrs. Sudha Gupta plays another role with aplomb, that of a humanitarian through the NGO Sparsh. The NGO has so far touched the lives of millions of children, the elderly and women who have been victim of life and circumstance. Her next dream is to create a school for mentally challenged children as soon as possible. Mrs. Sudha Gupta's work speaks louder than her words but it is an inspiration for everyone when she says 'I want to leave this world a little better than I found it'.
