Twist winds together all the varied strands of Shankara’s experience in development and education. Shankara has inspired people in corporations, charities and schools, and now has an impressive record of success delivering the Work Programme alongside Seetec and A4e. Shankara continues to have notable success with people with physical and mental challenges and ‘hard to reach’ groups, such as those from migrant and refugee backgrounds.
While working in schools and colleges Shankara realised the need for a clearer focus on leadership and leadership development. Later, as London Regional Director for Common Purpose, Shankara noted the extraordinarily liberating effect of entrepreneurial learning as a way to develop leadership skills. He established Twist to bring his depth of training experience to a wider audience.
