Quest Edustation and it's services

Various Training and Learning programs offered by QUEST EDUSTATION are tools to discover those hidden talents and identify some new skills. Quest Edustation is an outbound training provider and a learning portal. With the vision of helping students (school and college) and professionals refine and redefine their personalities and skills. Quest Edustation introduces them to the symphonic work culture through a variety of activities that extend learning beyond the classroom.



Vision of Quest Edustation


My exposure of 24 years, both in the Corporate and Academic fields, made me recognize the huge gap between the skilled workforce and our job-seeking youths. I thought, with my professional aptitude and experience, I could bridge this gap with my efforts to upgrade the youngsters. The task was difficult but not impossible (as it was a one woman army). My passion to upgrade the youngsters to become skilled, apart from their technical know-how, is an absolute inspiration. I left my full-time job and started preparing the short training modules on multiple topics. It may be appropriate to add that, in this journey, I completed my various certifications to help me enhance my venture. Quest Edustation is an attempt to achieve something difficult, which makes me unique. For me, it is an expedition to train and teach as well as learn in the process each day, thus to rediscover/discover excellence and contributing towards making society better.



Mission of Quest Edustation


My venture, Quest Edustation-Training & Learning Solutions, is an initiative focusing on Skill Development Programs for various categories, including schoolchildren, UG and PG students, job seekers, corporate employees, entrepreneurs, and working individuals, as well as career coaching for students from std. 8th onwards.


I believe the overall development of personality is possible only when an individual is exposed to various situations and efforts are made to overcome shyness, thus bringing out the sunny side of the personality. Through my venture, I advocate the importance of skill development, which leads to the paths of employability, recognition, and self-actualization.


With regard to industry and the job market scenario globally, there is an overpowering need for skilled individuals. Sincere efforts are made by me to introduce training and learning through a variety of innovative and creative programs, tools, and techniques that help in exploring the hidden talents of individuals.

Secondly, as a Financial Trainer for various esteemed organizations, I take it as my mission to financially educate society.


As far as future goals and aspirations are concerned, through my venture, I am sincerely dedicated to training, guiding, and coaching individuals from various walks of life who dare to follow their dreams and acquire excellence.

Secret of Time Management as aMultitasker - Academician, Researcher, Trainer, and Designer


I feel as I am blessed by almighty to be a multitasker. I define myself as a constant LEARNER (Learning is limitless). Added to this, what drives me is my passion to empower individuals. I love what I do, and I do what I love. Therefore, I never feel like I am working. The most significant aspect of my life is that I am blessed with family and friends who believe in me, and my husband Satish is a rock of support in nurturing my multiple roles. The strategies are quite simple – I am very punctual, organized, passionate, and focused. Schedule things in advance. I try not to mingle my professional and personal lives. This helps me stay grounded. One piece of advice I would like to share is that as we reach for the stars, we must remember that without managing our time and energy wisely, we risk feeling more dissatisfied as we spread ourselves too thin. Life is not a sprint, but a marathon. Take one step at a time with Confidence and Gratitude.
